I think you need to do a little more research. While the colors are strong I don't think your audience are Russian constructivist.

I think you should use typefaces that are more light and fun. The one that you have now is so generic and cold. Same with the colors. Need to use colors that appeal to women.

Well done, I think it's a good message, with very good presentation.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Good concept. Execution could have been pulled off better, IMO.

Try using a grid-system to create some sort of underlying structure. I think that would help this design tremendously.

Well it's better than last time. I see that you are experimenting with color, however I think you need to do more. Monochromatic can be nice but now it looks like it's for a baby boy.

I'm no graphic artist, and I know I'm intruding on the argument, but I personally like the second of the original ones. I think the bleak color scheme adds to the effect.

I like your power words and layout.. but I would like to see an 'image'.

something that would actually 'catch' a woman's attention.. so that she may read your words.

Nice work though!

so going to class DOES help i think the color is a little unfeminine, though. unless this is a general poster about loving yourself regardless of who you are. I would stick with something more neutral, maybe a gray (black is really harsh) or a green (something neutral between boy and girl)

I Think the second one will be much more exciting with a different more colorful gradient behind it
