The cover design fills the positive space of the numbers with a photograph of flowers in a grassy field. The negative space has a maroon color, in a way, it’s using opposite colors to give the flowery field emphasis of peace or serene while using the negative space to form the numbers and the design. The same goes for the logo on the top left which uses the negative space to create a silhouette or the company's logo. The colors don't blend in together to where it's hard to see but rather it unifies the elements to make good use of both positive and negative space.
