PowerPoint Presentation:

With my double page spread I plan to have an interview with a famous rap artist, this will appeal to my target audience as they will be interested in the lives of musicians they listen to. In the interview I want one colour for the interviewer and one for the interviewee this is so that the reader can distinguish who is who. At the bottom of the page I will put the page number – this is so the reader can have a point of reference and I will put the magazine name there as well so it links back to the front page. I want three pictures like in one my case studies I want one picture taking up the majority of one half of the page so that it stands out from the rest of the picture and text. I want three other pictures as well; one of the artists album (artists will be more willing to be featured in my magazine if they know much of their target audience reads it). Another picture I will use to advertise something they are wearing which the clothing company will pay the artist and my company for advertising their product- though I did not see this in any of my case studies, I believe this will encourage companies to sell to my magazine, as they know if an artist wears something and their target audience see’s them wearing it, your guaranteed that your target audience will see the product if they read a magazine of that genre, and many readers of magazines look to celebrities and articles as their point of reference when it comes to fashion. Through my production log you can see how I used my research to influence my design

PowerPoint Presentation:

Call out: Here you see an example of a call out >> the editors have given a lure to tell the reader an insight to what the magazine article will be about. The speech marks alone will attract readers because it shows the reader that this is an interview and interviewee article. The text is mainly is one colour but key word like ‘humble’ and ‘struggle’ are in a different colour. Paragraphs/borders: The article is put into paragraphs to group sentences together which is more appealing than putting it all in one block, the columns are used to make it clear to the reader the order of the article which in this case is vertical. The borders or sometimes called gutters are used to make the pages look more presentable other than the text being at the edge of the pages there is a small gap between the gap and the page, if the text was at the edge of where the pages meet, the reader will have to bend the pages a lot just to see the text. Font /size: The heading is the largest of all texts on the page to inform the reader that this is the heading, the article is the smallest out of all the text but this does not matter because the reader would of already been drawn into the article by the call out which is larger than the article size but smaller than the heading, the call out is the size because it is the second largest text on the page because of its importance, if the reader does not find the call out appealing they will not be interested in reading the article. There is one font used throughout the whole double paged spread this is to make sure there is a constant theme throughout the whole double page, if there were several fonts the article will look unprofessional and unorganised. Though there is one font the editor gives the editor uses the size of text to represent whether they are the heading or article. Colours : In each section of text there are two colours used, the important words of the section will be in one colour while the other text will be in another colour then in another section it will be the same but vice versa, this is used to create a theme throughout the article to make it look professional. The words or sentences that are a different colour from the rest of that particular section are more the important and interesting parts that will attract the reader to read the rest of the section. Wording: Some words are spelt in a the way it is spoken through a dialect many reader may speak in informal situations e.g. ‘cause’ this makes the reader feel this article is about somebody they can relate to, the same techniques is used with signs e.g. @. The ellipse used at the end of the call out draws the reader into reading the article, when editors use call outs its normally from the middle of the text getting the reader to read the whole article to find out how that text relates to the article. ‘9:30’ in digital form shows the reader its 9:30 in the morning, the title suggests that they get an insight into what this celebrity is in the morning which is obviously exclusive. At the same time most of the text used is formal, because if all of the text was informal some readers may get offended thinking the editors think they do not have the intellect to read formal text.

Caption : Below the black and grey picture there is a sentence underneath it though the text is very small in most situations though this is where the caption would be placed, to tell the reader what that picture is about. That text could be photo credit as well, acknowledging the person who took the photo and informing the reader. Layout: In most cases the main image is on the left this is the chronologically correct, the left side will be the first part the reader will see so the picture especially of a famous person will encourage the reader to read the article, where if it was the other way round the reader may feel a bit overwhelmed by the amount of words and get put off the magazine. With paragraph there needs to be margins to make the page look organised. You see here there does not necessary need to be a masthead Image margin : The image margarine to make the page look neat and not overcrowded. Folio: in the upper right hand corner you see an example of a folio, there is a number here that is linked to the contents page to navigate the reader. Aswell right next to the page number is the magazine logo, this is to represent the magazine and link the page to the front cover.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Drop cap: Here you see an example of a drop cap ‘T’ it is used to draw the reader in to read the rest of the text, the bold font represents his masculinity and it being in black matches his outfit. Colour is an important factor as well here you see there is a theme of black and white in the picture and in the text which creates a sense of slickness where in this context this is the motive. Headline: The headline here is very creative there is a mirror line where the top says ‘man made’ and the bottom says ‘made man’ this is different and a clever play on words entertaining the reader. by-line : The byline which in this example is in the bottom right hand corner ‘ Janel Toppin ’, this is to acknowledge the editor out of respect for them making this article and to inform the reader who wrote it because many times a continuous reader of a magazine may have a favourite editor after a while, if on the front cover it says someone favourite editor is writing an article if they like their way of explaining things they might by the magazine just because of that. Subheading : A subheading does not have to be short here you see a longer example of it in between the mirror line, it is there to tell the reader what the magazine is partly about, it is more in-depth than the heading.

End dot: An endot is used to represent that the article is finished because not all articles finish at the end of the page, they normally use an icon, and in this case it is a red star. Images: Just like the front cover and contents it is important that there is eye contact to make a personal connection between the person and the audience, the clothes still need to represent the genre of the magazine and the colours of the clothes have a relation to the article colour e.g. in the one above the outfit is black and white which is the same colour used for the article,2) with the first magazine the picture is a faded colour as well as the colour of the text. All these are important devices that express the theme of the magazine. Background: In most cases the background is black or white, this is to make sure the text is still readable.
