  • The opening page follows the classic ‘Z’ flow of design. The brightest color box is on the top left and the right, middle square is one of the lighter colors, so the eye goes straight to the top left corner box.

  • It’s easily navigable. Instead of listing sections horizontally, with no distinct/unique shape, the opening page reads as a chart or a game board.

  • The colors of the boxes compliment one another. Each color is roughly in the same scheme.
