Road Trip Magazine--Could create a san diego adventure mini magazine
This magazine also uses the grid system. Even though the pages of text are boring with the plain color scheme they still made interesting features. Like how they have two large columns being broken up by one skinny column in the middle. This gives your eyes a break from all that text. They also enlarge the " to create more space on the page.
Fashion catalog from TopMan. I like the abstractness from the shape of the boxes they put the pictures in. Nice placement for the text.
