Type & Image
i love the relationship between type and image within the first two images, the fine lines and large counters within the type and the white lettering creating type out of negative space pushes the type forwards against the darky starry backgrounds. i think the image used in the first piece is a beautiful moody looking sky the desaturated colours work really well with highlights of blue and pink without the colour i don't think the white type would work.
Although this piece is more image based it would not make sense without the type, the type is very subtle and small and placed to the side to enhance the image without taking over the focus
I love the simplicity of the illustration below, the overlapping images and the use of stereotypical colours for the sexes blue and pink makes the image work without any need for type.

i really like the variation of image and illustration within his work, the illustrations are simple line drawings, they look fun and light hearted.
i think the layering of two images works really well, the close up and normal shot together creates a mysterious feel, i like the grainy image and the use of tone in the first shot. i love the colour bleeds in the second image the fading and changing of colour adds a dreamy look to the images.

I like the simplicity of type and colour, its simple, stylish and bold without looking overpowering
