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.
Layout ideas - Designed by Jake Hill. I am inspired by the angled cropping of the images. It creates great eye movement, and visual interest. There's a great balance of negative and positive space throughout the layouts.
SHIFT PUBLICATION I love overlapping visual elements with the image without destroying it. It adds so much interest. I also think the big section/page number is pretty cool.// I like the use of color overlay
