my high school's colors were brown and gold and i could never figure out why in hell anyone would choose that combo. everything always looked awful (mostly because cheap printing would always make the "gold" a very bright yellow). as the rival sports teams used to say, "shit and piss!".
anyway, this is an excellent use of above-mentioned colors, and a great design in general. redeems the whole make-believe curse i've placed on these colors in my mind. i wish it was the cover of my yearbook. then mebbe i woulda bought one.
