Picking a color and/or shape to carry throughout the magazine design could be simple way to design this dynamically. [Design: Triangles, Red, white and black brochure layout. Visual identity concept / Strassenfeger by Rene Bieder, via Behance]
Color-I like how some of the text is black over a white background, and some of it it off to the side in a purple/pink box with white writing. We could incorporate this into our magazine by using colored boxes offset with differently colored text inside.
SHIFT PUBLICATION I love overlapping visual elements with the image without destroying it. It adds so much interest. I also think the big section/page number is pretty cool.// I like the use of color overlay
