Nice Design. Edward Hates It. Client Loves It.

Very well designed info graph. I like the combination of the colors on here. Typography is pretty clean as well. Edward Tufte will throw many red flags on here though.
I need to write a find way to write a proposal in this format. This is way more elegant, fun, and informative than the .doc files. The visual also provide the stickiness. Think from the client's perspective. If the contents are exact same on each format: the word and the pdf seen here, which one would you like more?
