Sadhana Pittala's curator insight, May 16, 2014 11:54 AM

Type: Versus

Pros: Easy to understand and read

cons: The colors clash with one another to the point at which it's hard to look at, the colors also look dull and washed out

Kiya James's curator insight, May 13, 2016 3:21 PM

Pro: Good idea for useful bait. The headline really grabs a readers attention.

Con: The colors chosen for the font and details of the infograph clash a little with the picture of the players.
