we just got back from the beautiful maldives and after receiving our pics I started creating some possible announcement cards.
I just cant decide which one we should pick.
The movie-poster-designs are pretty much the same, except for the “credit” section.
Please help me pick a card and feel free to let me know if you think I could change some parts for the better 🙂
The quality is not the best since I had to resize the pics to upload.
Thank you in advance <3

@mamadingdong: Thank for voting and explaining! I really like the simple version a lot, but I asked a few friends and they were not into it and since I think the credit version is kinda funny, I really cant decide.
Had deciding trouble a few weeks ago about going to the maldives and the bees pushed me to go and Im so happy I listened to the bees! So hopefully you guys can help me with this decision as well 🙂

I love the last one! I love the colours and the whole 1 + 1 = 3 thing (: If you really want to choose one with him kissing your belly then I would pick #4, because I’m not a fan of the credits.

I like pic 5 the best although I would make the green text darker so it’s easier to read. I don’t mind the photo you’ve used for the first 4 designs but the light coloured text is really hard to read when placed over top of a photo. If you want to stick with the first concept and make the announcement look like a movie poster, it might work better if you changed the layout from horizontal to vertical since that’s the usual movie poster orientation. You could also put a dark, solid coloured box at the bottom and put your “movie credits” in there so they show up better or you could put a frame around the whole thing…like this Jaws poster…but obviously it would look different ;). I’m just using it as an example so you can see how much better text shows up when it’s not placed directly over a photo. I’m a graphic designer so I am probably a lot more picky than the average bee so feel free to take or leave these suggestions. 😀

I love #5. I am going to be honest, and I don’t love the photo on the first 4 as a pregnancy announcement. Its the type of photo I would put in my house, but something about it feels too personal? Or something, I am not even sure, but I am a little uncomfortable sharing that moment with you guys.

I have to agree with PP that I am just not a fan of the photo in 1-4.

I really like the cute, simple version #5! I would change the mint green text color to something easier to read, though – maybe navy? It’s kind of lost against the light background

The photo looks like he’s trying to eat your stomach. I’m so sorry. I wish you could super impose the background of 1-4 into the last one!
