Not a whole lot of design knowledge to spill on you here. This was just an absolutely gorgeous photo by Brian Chilson of one of the Arkansas Times’ Academic All-Stars. I tried to stay the hell out of the way as much as possible. But because of all the colors I had to drop something in behind the headline so it would be readable. I don’t think I did too much damage. Putting boxes behind headlines is probably one of my least favorite things to do. But, one thing I like even less is a drop shadow, which is another option here.
