Why Cities Must Allow Us to Love and Leave our Cars

I extremely like this design, in the sense it uses photo-manipulation, where the angled view of the woman is combined with some buildings. The type for the title fit perfectly in my opinion because it is a very sophisticated font with very little line weight which adds to the futuristic feel.
