Designing a Layout..

I have been doing some research into what sites have an effective layout designs- in my search i came across this quote, kind of love it! haha

I am looking to place a strong emphasis on photographic and visual content over written content…

These images are taken from various websites and applications that have employed a good use of imagery vs. content. I like the idea of having a small text box that you can click across to read more if you want.

These images employ block/grid like layout with allows the reader to see clips of all imagery and text in an easy to view spread.
