After couple of failures with my previous layouts I moved on.
I started to simplify my layouts a bit by making them to look a bit less busy and balanced. Here is what I came up with.
Again taking into consideration some feedback from my peers I had make some improvements and make some changes to overall design. First thing that catches your eye is color and it is a bit too bright and rich and in some points there in an article on 2 colour background which makes it very difficult to read. Also there is a text over image which on print was almost invisible and of course unreadable.
