The Biolan uses color, big numbers, and lots of whitespace to create a great Table of Contents. Each chapter has a color it uses as a theme.
Use bold colors and big type to make information super accessible, like 99U Quarterly Magazine does with its page numbers. Its use of large numbers and classic black and yellow make its Table of Contents quite navigable.
I really like the different shapes they have used to put the photos in to create a bit of order but it is disorderly through the way they are randomly placed.
encounter+issue+3+table+of+contents+h This particular table of contents is so very playful even though it has a simple color palette. The little man hanging from the bottom is a very cute touch. The bold type for the headlines is nicely placed with the smaller type for other articles. Its a nice use of typography and has a good layout.
Use: Table of Contents Why: I love how the numbers overlap. Their different sizes make it fun but come together in a way where it's not distracting and disorganized. Picture in the back can be switched or no picture in the back would be fine also.
nice table of contents. http://media.smashingmagazine.com/images/tables-of-contents/45.jpg
