Update 1-10-13: After presenting to the class, the feedback was negative regarding the imagery and overall look I chose. I introduced it saying I wanted to bring back those cute pamphlets but I forgot how ridden they are with judgement and vestiges of a puritanical culture that would be scolding divorce, especially for women and the practical solution is to stick with mostly typography. The lovely Emily directed me to Matter where they use photography of people-less spaces, typography and color blocking to inform their audience.
