The August issue of National Geographic is packed with features that shine a light on global migration patterns. And to help get its message across, the magazine has created a batch of powerful editorial designs that roam beyond borders themselves.

For readers, the use of full-bleed photography and headlines that drift off the top of the page represent an impactful change of pace. And considering that the issue highlights the plight of refugees, it's a clever design choice that will make people pay attention to these pressing concerns.
