I really like how this magazine has it's grid layout (for where to run it's text columns, place images, etc.), and then runs over top of everything with large text. Love that some of the text runs off the page.
LAYOUT IDEA Even though this is a paper, it could still work for a magazine. The use of large photos is something I like the idea of doing, and the placement of the text boxes is very easy to read, but without looking boring.
