OK…YOU’VE HIT MY ‘OUCH’ BUTTON. I’ve been OK with earlier pages from Marcus. But this one…uh…nope.
It all goes to the photo illustration here. It’s badly conceived and badly executed. Points to consider:
- There are unattached fingers at the top left. Yes, I see there’s a hand in the background, but it still doesn’t work to have those fingers here.
- The oval/circular/odd-shaped photos are more confusing than helpful. And, where are the names? Who are these people?
- Had I been in charge, I’d have told the designer he/she was just trying too hard. Stop this…take a breath…come back with a much simpler look.
It’s overdone and it’s confusing.
