Not bad. I like the open space you have left. It allows whoever to digest all the type. I have just 2 comments after looking at this quickly. First it seems that you are trying to create a symmetrical piece but it feels off balance because the amount and orientation of the type on the right versus the left. Maybe a 60% black on the right copy would make it match the left visually. Second the "Design Type Culture" is a bit close to that copy.

A possible variation could with a little punch of color could be nice and dramatic. Just a few suggestions.

Very good work. Which I respect here is the fact you made an elegant look only by fonts and layout. and I will give criticue ofcours.
first thing it is hard to know the font from bitmaps, but i can see arial font, please try to not use this font because it is just another virus by microsoft to make a helvitca alike font. the addresses in text blocks which locate in centers of your design as: comment13, contributer 14, etc. the contrast between extended font and arial beside giving bold style to the font has emphased the title .. I agree, but the kerning was too much for my eye. The best in typography is to not creat huge spaces between letters, and to not make too much kerning, not all fonts has the best spaces between letters so we have to refine the kerning part. And for the text blocks at edges like that one wich starts with: Print, 38 east 29th, .. " I can see some text need emphasing. That's what came in my mind. Thank you

Oh you are welcome, it is really one of few typography pieces that pleasent me in DA.
On other hand I am trying hardly to know the font, but acutally the "a, t, and y " are not very clear in this size at bitmap picture. But yes you are right it looks helvitca or such .. the G works as helvitca now for me.

Thank you! I just tried to give responsible feedback as you done a very good work which deserve such respond. I am sorry again for that mistake but - as I told - it is hard to know the font through bitmaps espcially in type size like which you used and with a font that has some alike fonts. On other hand I have to recommend - if I may - to use another font for your text body, I agree that helvitca looks cool, but it is really " overused ". beside it is not the best choice for text if we speak about readbility part, I would instead recommend it for titles and display purposes.
