See through text always catches my eye. I feel like i may use this technique in my editorial page. When you can see an image or phot coming through the text you see it as more than just text, you see the images or phot that it is revealing and that itself gives the words(whatever they may read) so much feeling and expression.
I like this a lot because of the headline font and style. It is very catchy and visually pleasing. The picture goes along with the headline, "is happiness catching" because of the pictures of the smiles, so you obviously know the pages go together. There is clearly another spread after this because there is no article on this page, but the bi-line is helpful and visually pleasing as well.
