In preparation for both my typography class and the ad campaign we're doing in my Words and Images class, I ran across a great example of straight typography used well. This type of design takes forever to get just right, and I admire designers who attempt it.
There are a few things I would have done differently, though. For example, I think some words are given way too much visual importance. What's with the "soft-spoken red heads brunettes" part? I realize that all of those phrases are meant to be separate, but they seem a little bit too big, they almost read as one, and maybe they shouldn't have been placed quite like that on the page. (Don't get me wrong, I understand the whole "opposites can work together" theme; I just think some of the words are a little too big for their importance.) Overall, though, this is a great design.
