I'm working on cover designs for a rebranding of UNION, the party magazine of the CDU, Germany's ruling party.
I'm not a member of the party myself, the work was commissioned by Burda, a german publishing house.
I think the party has quite a good CI, I like their font Kievit, and the orange is a very progressive colour for a conservative political party. It often doesn't shine through in publications though, because it is always mixed with colour photography. That's why I decided to keep the rest in b/w so it will stand out more.

I think the cover photos might just work a little better when they are not constrained in a bounding box.

Great debut Christoph, keep it up!
The thought of bw photography to emphasize orange is great, hope they go with it.
The bounding box is good, but the crop could be better, more to the right.
Maybe its a good idea to try more conventional layout, like UNION above, photo in the center and content at the bottom.
Maybe loose the orange circle to let the viewer focus more on the picture.
The text above weights him down, he looks really lazy, like a buddha.
i would love to take a look on the typographic details. why not upload an attachment?
