New Beginnings

Grant Freking
Counterintuitive color usage (such as a yellow sky) and type outlined in a tint lighter than its fill hue can create a bit of unexpected excitement. Making the most important text larger than the rest is a simple device often used to imply the information hierarchy. Using color to denote secondary information is a more subtle, but equally effective, technique.
