The Brief:
Create a layout for a news section using a mimimum of 3 different photos in the spread.

The Design:
Using a full-page photo as a background to set a tone for the main article, the design plays off the already interesting grid and colours of the image by constraining the colour palette of the foreground items to greyscale and playing to the strengths of the background instead of fighting it. Size of the article headers and their placement establish a visual heirarchy immediately while the large negative space above maintains breathing room amongst the cluster of articles.
