  5. 5. Images advertising specific articles on specific pages Articles listed around main image Advertising a subscription the magazine Main image of page, contents list flows around as to not obscure it Page of main image in corner, not obscuring anything but still in plain sight Dateline Colours are mainly dark, with white text, to stand out and go along with theme of page

Drop cap Image in middle of the article to separate the text so that it does seem very long Title is largest text on the page emphasising the importance of the article as shown in the title Colours used are mainly black and red. Red is used as the background for the main image, so the font colour is a link
  9. 9.

The main image dominates the page drawing the most attention Bright colours are used on this page to show this is for a mainstream audience
