This layout caught my attention with the use of drop caps and pull quotes. The drop caps are prominent, but simple. I am immediately drawn to the beginning of the text after looking at the images. I think it was nicely done to have a block of text protruding from the article with different form, size, and using a thick rule to contain the left portion. The alignment is left, but I like how the paragraphs are placed in a variety of columns to help composition flow with images and add variety.
I like how some of the text is black over a white background, and some of it it off to the side in a purple/pink box with white writing. I could incorporate this into my magazine by using colored boxes offset with differently colored text inside.
