Imagery and type: thoughtful placement

It can be said that great designs stand out because every inch has been carefully crafted. Maybe it was the deliberate and careful use of color, texture, and type in a visual assault from edge to edge. Or maybe the successful layout employed negative space to frame the important parts. Whatever the style, thoughtful placement can create some stunning work.

Here are some designers who combine imagery and type in fantastic ways. Observe how they consider every inch of the page, from the loud attention  grabbing elements to the quiet, subtle background elements.
