How Safe? Initial Mag Layout

My initial layout was a test-run for certain ideas I am trying to incorporate into the final. It feels a bit crowded with all the picture bars so I'm going to work with that a bit more. I'm also not 100% sure about the corn image on the left hand side, though I do like how it's working with the top bar on the right hand side. I'm going to try to incorporate one solid image, then possibly add on from there. My header font is also too thin so I may choose a different font for that. It needs some work.

  1. OK, make a decision whether or not it is a horizontal or vertical graphic. You have the right idea in mind, but the layout is all over the place. I don't know where to look first. Focal point. I like the type/graphic header thing but too many bars outside of it. Think of the KISS principle (Keep it simple stupid), then add design accents. Too many dominant things going on - everything is fighting in this layout.
