Magazine Layout and Grid Thumbnails

I thought it would be beneficial if I created a basic structure of  how my magazine could visually be.  By doing this, it gives me an idea, and basic template in which I can work with.  Obviously things may completely within my magazine.  However, by having this, it ensures a starting point- what I want it to look like, say, and reflect on my work.

For my magazine, I want to show exploration in different layouts, composition and grids; however I also want my magazine to have consistency – as I feel it is important for a professional standard. Therefore what’s good about my thumbnail sketches, are that they are all different- exploring different layouts and the possible structures in which I can take, yet they still have the basic structure of my magazine, including the front cover and contents page.
