The curvy the writing on this cover is bold, whichedges of the writing create a slick, cool look still engages the reader. The modelwhich suggests that the brand helps to give image on this cover will also attract thethis image. audience to look for more information of what he is promoting in the magazine. The white and black fonts for this main sell line connote formality, and class. - The date and issue number are not shown on the front cover of this detail magazine, which could connote that the company are trying to hide the price so the audience of the magazine do not get distracted by the figures, but by the information and model image on the front cover.
  • 6. Head mast- This title is so well known that the whole word does not have to be visible, and the models head can cover some of the letters. The sharp, original font of this Look cover title is powerful although it is feminine with its bold, tweaked edges to give a sophisticated style. The yellow font is bright so it stands out against the light blue background colour contrasting and emphasising the title. Model image this shows a medium shot of Kelly Rowland, in which she is smiling, connoting happiness and her direct contact to the camera also connotes friendliness to the reader. Her quite low dress and glowing skin, perfected hair and appearance appeals to the male gaze, although the cover clearly implies that this magazine is aimed towards the female gender, because of the female clothing and accessories, and colours used on the front cover. Janice Winship also stated that the womans face hallmark showed young, white females, although this cover shows that this statement has changed over the years, as other ethnicities have been more included in our modern day society, and many are seen as iconic figures, such as Kelly Rowland. The issue number and price of this magazine is hidden on this cover, with it being stated at the bottom of the page next to the barcode. This is useful if you know that a few brands of magazines place the price here, but if you did not know this it would not be helpful to the reader as it does not stand out. Although the fact that the price is not clearly shown, does not stand out, because this magazine attracts its audiences attention by its bright colours and images, so it should not matter how much the magazine is if the reader is interested in its contents. Maslows Hierarchy of needs- Esteem needs, as the clothing andaccessories in this magazine and revealed on this cover making the readermore confident.

  • 8. The strap line included on the cover of this magazine is also printed in a small, white font, which does not stand out very noticeably, which could cause the reader to miss this information, although the age range this magazine would be targeted to, around 40+ tend to look carefully at magazines to see if it the one they are looking for, so this could suit them. Head mast- White font, feminine style, shadow surrounding each letter gives a slight 3D effect to the title, although I think the white does not stand out very much against the light pink background, so would be better if it was a darker colour to contrast this. The price of this magazine is clearly shown in a dark pink circle overlapping the head mast of this cover, which catches the readers attention straight away, so the reader knows how much money the magazine is. This is useful as people always want to the know the prices of products and are not usually very noticeable on magazines, so this is an Main sell line- The main sell line of this magazine advantage to the magazine.

The direct gazegiven from the model suggests genuine happiness andconfidence, which is what older people look for and like to be. Thecolours surrounding the model are very natural, which relates to theolder age range, as women want to look youthful, glowing andgraceful, as well as looking natural.
