Meet Cristina

I've been working a ton on the University Project, specifically putting together bios of each of the students for whom we'll be looking for sponsors. This is what I have so far and I'd like to get some opinions since I'm new at this whole design thing. There are some things I don't think look good and some things I do, and I'm looking to find out what things I could make better and what I should leave alone.

This first one is the actual Bio Card. It will be the first thing someone sees, kind of introducing them to a student. It's a half-sheet size, with the student info on the front and a little more info on the back.

This next sheet is more of a background info page. It shares a bit about the community and the country in which the student lives. And on the back are a few maps of the area where the student is.

So, your constructive input is appreciated! What looks good, what looks wierd? What makes you interested? What is distracting? Thank you for your help!!

So much to do...
  • Organize financial details of the University Project
  • Design logo, website, publications, etc. and get things up and running
  • Present the new ministry to the DFCC congregation
  • Find sponsors for seven students
  • Get religious worker visa in order to get back into Ecuador and stay there
  • Purchase a plane ticket
  • Plan major details of a wedding (mine!)
  • Have a yard sale
  • Raise enough money to live in Ecuador until July '10
  • Pack bags, making about 20 suitcases worth of stuff fit into about 4 pieces of checked luggage and a carry on
  • Not go insane
All before September ends. It can be done, right?
