This layout is really modern and fresh. It is a bit distracting because of the boldness in shapes. I do really like though that it's very original. I'm not sure if I like the images of a half face. I do believe it would look good for a student section.
What I like: I like how each person has his/her own characteristics and the corresponding items in the pictures. It is cute and interesting way to present profile of someone, rather than a mere portrait of someone. Where we could use this: when we are doing interviews with a specific person in the campus or a student. We could pick the characteristics of that person and design it with cute images and photoshop items in. (Kyuree Kim)
