    This piece was entirely experimental... wanted to work with typography a little bit (I don't really know much about it, have any tips?)... but I like the outcome, even though it is a bit random.

    Thoughts?

    I like the direction you are going with it, I think it would help if you gave it more depth. The arrows that are closer are sharper and bigger, the ones in the back are smaller and more blurred, maybe give that a shot. I think with all the elements on the foreground it starts to get busy.

    It's interesting and abstract, and that's your prerogative, and no one can really judge it. But the message isn't like mindblowing. Apply this experimental concept to a really mindblowing message and you have something. I think the translucent layers and haphazard pastels and assortment of basic fonts/weights/styles of type lead to an altogether messy and vague visual statement, and while this may be the intent, it straddles a thin line between art and a bunch of 20% opacity layers glommed together in Photoshop.
