This split image and type is design well because of the greyscale coloring. Target audience Design- overall the font selection was perfect because it is still readable. I like the white space on the right gives the illustration depth.
I don't think this is TOC but I like the diamond/triangle shapes that are used to cut out various photos. The collage effect works nicely with the nature scenes in the photos. The center diamond with the copy reminds me of a compass.
I think these layouts are a great example of how to make pages graphic heavy, and yet integrate text very well. However, where the most intense graphic elements are, my eye usually goes the wrong way across the page (i. right to left)
