I found this design from the website with the article we blogged about http://www.icograda.org/news/year/2010_news/articles1735.htm. I think the design differs from that of the U.S in a sense of simplicity. It has a repeated quality throughout the typography and the choice of color. The fonts used in the design do not differ, as opposed to the U.S. where we use different styles and fonts throughout most of our designs. The soft lime green and the red used in the type give it a sort of christmas theme, which might be what they were going for but who knows. This designs only graphic is the acronym of European Design Training Incubator (edti), whereas the U.S. is more graphic oriented. Overall, the design works well for the article. It tells you what you're going to read about and doesn't stray from the theme.
