here are examples of but complete spreads. as you look at them as a whole you may notice the grid that each is set upon. My main idea is modularity and pieces fitting together. This is a main theme but there are some places throughout where the rules relax and the text or image is allowed off it leash.
As you can see I have allowed for wider columns of text and more text per page. The images are more thoughtfully integrated and follow flow-line rules now. It is less disembodied and arbitrary.
