Like I said in the OP, I prefer a minimalist aesthetic and maximum use of space - I like plain fonts, straight lines and uniformity. I don't want evocative imagery out of my sheet, I want to find the number I need quickly and get back to the game. Probably my technical background coming to fore in that regard, but that's how it is. So yeah, that's what I was going for - maximum utility.
I certainly don't expect it to be to everyone's taste, but then it wasn't made for everyone - I made it for myself and the guys I game with to use (should they wish). Just wanted to get more eyes in case I forgot something important (which I have been known to do). If I was going to make something for everyone it would be quite different.
