I feel my critique on this is less about the artistic work itself as it is about your comments and presentation of it. The piece itself claims that "typography can be as simple as this." In another case perhaps I'd look and this and go, "Oh, this person is intentionally trying to be minimalist," but here I read your statement as something that almost undermines the work that goes into creating effective typography. Almost as if it's saying "so easy a monkey could do it."

The arrangement of the letterforms themselves are just okay - I don't think they're shockingly grand or inventive or anything - but I do like the arrangement enough to take a closer look. Something about the odd space after "as" compared to the larger chunk before the ending "as this." Color choice is effective, especially since you balance it at the bottom with the "footnotes." The addition of texture is fantastic, too, I really think it makes this image. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

Like I said, this piece isn't bad, but think it falls flat of something more interesting. The lines swiping sideways add some nice visual stimulation, but not much (especially with the tangent created at the bottom curve of the S in "simple"). They do serve well to fill up the ample visual space, however.

I'd love to see a larger size available for download. I have the feeling the information at the bottom is very interesting, but the viewer can't read it in the full view size!
