Like the idea of the color pop. The Silhouette Brochure by Tony Huynh the one color with the black and white is such a simplistic and yet genius idea. This is so perfect for a sports page, but not sure if it will fit in with this year's theme.
FOLIO A look at page numbering. The use of generous margins is also nice. I like the mystery of the numbers though. The human eye only reads the top half of a number, so these remain readable, whilst becoming a designerly feature in itself.
