I like how the story takes the shape of letters, and those form another message. I could incorporate this into my magazine by kind of combining a feature story in the small text, but an ASF with the larger letter outlines.
I think, as contents page, this page is really strong on the design front. The simple colours of black and white go well with the vibrant photograph used. The composition has been well thought through with a good mix of graphics, shape and alignment.
