Create a focal point

On any magazine page, think about creating a focal point. This provides the page both something interesting visually to look at and to attract the reader’s attention, and it also will establish information hierarchy.

This page, entirely typographic, does that with a simple arrangement of numbers. The small triangles provide cues as to how you should go about navigating the page.

White space on the page is important too and this design uses the negative space on the page effectively to frame the content and reinforce hierarchy.

With so many pieces of information on the page, adequate separation among those individual pieces is important.
