Transcript of Question no1.

  1. 1. Front Cover My front cover uses many conventions of a music magazine.
  2. 2. Selling line I followed the conventions of a music magazine by using a selling line, I used the superlative best to attract customers that want a top quality magazine and by saying its the best it persuades people to buy it.
  3. 3. Main Image I have followed the convention of having artist eye contact with the camera. I also followed the convention for dance magazines by using headphones as a prop for the photograph.
  4. 4. Cover lines I have followed convention's of using cover lines on my front page and I haven't cluttered them or put them over the artists face, I have went with some conventions by using a larger font and making artists names stand out.
  5. 5. Headline I followed the convention of having a headline and sub line. Many magazines use a splash, I decided to follow this convention and add a competition inside to attract readers to buy the magazine.
  6. 6. Masthead I have used a masthead in the top left of the page like most other magazines, I have used a different font for the masthead to differentiate it from the rest of the text. Strapline I put the strap line at the bottom of the page.
  7. 7. Contents page I have created a conventional contents page. I have the issue date and website link at the bottom of the page.
  8. 8. layout I have a similar design to mixmags contents page with the text on the left with a big image on the right side of the page. I have also included my magazine name in the top right
  9. 9. Forms of the contents page I have used a title in the top left which is a conventional location in music magazines. I have used one column and used 4 headings which covers everything in the magazine. I have used a subscription advertisement as well. I have made the page numbers stand out from the text by using a bright colour with an black stroke and by making the numbers larger than the rest of the text.
  10. 10. Article
  11. 11. Main image I used DJ Faxity as the main image, The article is about him so it is a good idea to have a photo of them. As he makes his music electronically many people dont see what he looks like, so having a photograph would reveal this to the readers.
  12. 12. On the top of page 75 I used a quote that the artist has said. This makes the page look better as it isnt pure small text which would be off-putting to the reader. I used a box graphic around it to make it stand out. I have used a pull quote in the centre of the text to break up the text so it looks better and also to intrigue the reader. I used an index tab so the artists can flick to this page if they cant remember the page number.
  13. 13. The Article I have included a short introduction about the artist but as he is so popular and well known there is no need to write a long paragraph, just a few shocking facts to engage the reader. I have used a colour scheme in my house style, I have used black and yellow for the title.
  14. 14. Forms The colour scheme of my magazine is black, blue, white, and yellow. These are bright and contrasting and suit the audience of the edm genre. I have used images all taken by me I have used the futura font for most of the small text and used ecliptic and electora for larger text such as headlins or titles.
