  • 9. KERRANG! Magazine – Analysing front covers by researching them and contrasting them Main Anchorage Text Fonts The main text which usually links to the celeb or the main article in the magazine. All the fonts on the Kerrang Magazine are used in order to express what is going on in the music magazine. Firstly the KERRANG! title theme has broken glass on the title, this is to in order relate the reader to the topic. It is over the top of head so the reader can read the image clearly. When I create my music magazine I will also put a title theme that Is related to my topic and target audience in order to encourage the reader to be interested in it so they buy the magazine. On the music magazine there is no ordinary “Times New Roman” like contrasting on the BBC article, however this contrasts the KERRANG! Music magazine as it all different fonts when I do my music magazine as it will attract the audience to buy the magazine as this is what they want. All the fonts are also in capital letters because of this when I do my music magazine I will put it all in capital letters because this is what all target audiences want because all three of the target audiences want this because most of their music magazine is in capital letters because this will attract the reader because it has big fonts sizes it will attract the user to buy the music magazine. The font „worst‟ is in Italic this will encourage the reader to notice that is the worst and make it clear when I do my music magazine I will do this in order to encourage the reader to pick up the same points as it is the same target audience so It will be similar so I will do the same thing.
