Here are some examples I quite like of content pages:
In this design I quite like the balance of images and text. I also like the little images that relate to some pages.
I really like this design, mostly because of the colours and the way the page numbers etc are laid out. I think I will experiment with this idea. I also really like the ay the word contents has been stretched.
In this idea I quite like the images at the numbers on them to represent the pages the article is on. This could be a quick way for readers to find what they want to read.
In this design I like the way the word contents is written.
In this idea I like the way there are lines that join the picture up to the page number and information.
I am not 100% keen on this idea I think it all looks a bit random, however I do like the way it has been split in two halves.
In some of these design ideas the word content has appeared differently in all new and exciting ways. I decided to quickly sketch some ideas to see what I could come up with.
My next step is to mock these up in photoshop to see which ones work and which do not.
