    Hey guys! I'm designing this 'Event Newsfeed' for a client and I'm having trouble deciding which version I prefer. Please have a look at the attachments and give me some feedback. Feedback on the designs is also welcome!

    Tickets! I know it follows trend etc, but I personally feel they have great character. Real nice attention to detail

    looks really great, love this concept! I might suggest doing a little more to emphasize those different color categories. It might help for quicker scans by the user.

    Thanks @Nick Holmer! In previous versions either the smaller date stamp or the icon would be the same colour as the category. But I actually found removing those extra colours focused the eye on the important description tag. Which version do you prefer?

    A tiny bit more color contrast would be great as mentioned. And I prefer the version without holes. Great work, Alex!

    I like with the holes. Without looks nice too, but not quite as unique as with them.

    Nice work, dude! I definitely prefer the version without the cutout. It's cleaner and there's less visual noise. The cards look more tapable too. What about tilting each card slightly so they don't all look so uniform. Just an idea.

    I really like the cutout, but there's a lot going on there. The version without the holes is a lot cleaner, but loses the nice feel of the cutouts.

    I might try dropping the opacity of the perforation, drop the vertical stamp date and increase the size of those icons (which are really fun by themselves). Just a thought.

    Nice work.
    If it has a reason to look like tickets keep it, if it's just a nice design element, go with the no-holes version it is cleaner and simpler.

    @Jack Bingham Cheers dude. I'll give the tilted cards a go.

    @Mike Heitzke Thanks Mike! That's the one variation we haven't tried. I'll give it a go shortly. Thanks for the feedback.

    @Forrest Vess Thanks Forrest. There's no reason for them to be tickets really. Just a design touch for character. Thanks for the feedback!

    Maybe try to put two holes on sides of ticket instead. Try that.

    If there's no reason for them to look like tickets, I'm with @Forrest Vess, lose it. It's easy to get carried away with stuff like this (been there too, haven't we all?) but try to keep it simple without losing that personal touch of yours.

    Maybe you could just add some small, discrete elements to the noholes one to keep that ticket feeling, cos I liked that besides the busyness.

    I like your choice of movies/video games/sports too ;)

    @Alexander Danling Thanks dude. I think the simpler approach is the way forward. Any ideas for small details to add?

    Personally i wouldn't use tickets and leave it to passbook.

    Cards are concise and awesome. Good Job.

    Def with the holes. I think skeuomorphism is a great way to add to the experience
