Layout ideas: we could cut out the background, focus on the dominant person and edit the photos like this brochure did!

This is very big and bold. People will have no problem reading this. Personally, I don't like the type this big, but I think they did that so it fits with the rest of the magazine. It's not one of my favorite table of contents page though.

This is a very direct table of contents that shouts the central idea of the sections of the magazine. Could use as my table of contents just different colors and all on one page
