Packaging for fun

Some of the packaging I have worked on in 2009 in my Certificate of Graphic Design at Kingscliff TAFE was fun and innovative.

TAFEworks brochure cover

With only a week to complete and so many other things to do this little project has sort of fallen right down to the bottom of the priority list, but I had a go anyhow. I have always been wanting to do something with typography and with so many words to be placed on the cover of the A5 booklet it was the perfect opportunity. At first I wanted to work on a grid-like design but with the final large list of words to include it would have looked a bit odd. Chris has a lovely tutorial on working with typography on his blog (found in my friends links) so I gave it a go and quite like the end result.

What do you think, have I chosen the best colours or should I of left the background white and the type dark?
