    not sure i'm following the apple>pear concept. why is it a pear as opposed to a pineapple or a hippopotamus?

    whats significant about a pear? if its macs, why not keep it as an apple

    besides looking cool, i dont see any reason for a pear

    looks good. Couple usage fixes on the copy:

    Get it done, get it fixed.

    Have Problems with your Mac?

    Luck! :D

    and the pear is growing on me...

    I think it's more than sufficient for a business class project cover. If it were a design class I'd suggest more attention to the typography. Having odd line breaks like Cell
    Phone
    doesn't lead the eye comfortably. I'd try and keep it all on one line or break it more evenly. Also your main/top headline is the last thing I actually read/noticed. it also has a mistake in sentence. The word should be fixing, not fix. That's a lack of attention to detail that would bother me as an instructor when it came down to grading.

    I do like your overall concept of different flavors/fruit contrasting with offering customers different options and solutions. If you did all the photography and pshop work then I'd say that looks nice too.

    ah ok. english as a second language makes sense for an easy mistake. and btw it's customer, not costumer. ;)

    A little help with your English.

    Try "Get it done, get it fixed. We can do it!" or "Need it fixed? Get it done! We can do it."

    Your business is about cell phone and computer repair, so say a little more about cell phone repair in your text.

    The image is cute, and the layout has a good start.

    Hope this helps without doing too much for you. I'm a student, too.

    And don't worry about law suits. If it is student work and does not say anything really bad about the company, it's OK. You get in trouble when you try to make money with someone else's' work. Look at all the people here with the Apple logo in their sigs.

    I will chip in here and say don't put the cell phone repair in there stick to one thing and macs are difficult enough to repair without having to learn the 1million+ different cell phones i would make that a foot note.

    But you're okay with calling a business 'MacWorld'?

    Apple can't sue you for an imaginary plan proposal for a business class.
    Education usually falls under fair use.
