Preliminary Magazine Music Magazine One of the main big differences in the magazine is the quality of the images I have used, as the main image on the preliminary task is very blurry whilst the image on my music magazine is of a high standard of quality and this makes an immediate difference to the magazine. Another thing that has been improved in my music magazine is that the images which I have used are more organised and have boxes around them so that they become more defined. The colour scheme on my music magazine has improved since my Preliminary task as it was mostly used by two colours and didn’t look colourful and attract the eye whilst the music magazine did this and had a wider colour scheme which meant that it was more appealing to my target audience. Another thing that has improved is that the whole of my front cover has a theme and all ofthe text used for cover lines is the same text which makes it look better rather that it being different text and looking as if it does not fittogether. This is also why for the text I have stuck to 3 main colours as it keeps the theme running throughout the magazine.My skills have improved on Photoshop as when creating the Preliminary magazine front cover I did not do any editing to the main imageapart from taking the background out. This changed when I was creating my music magazine as I edited the model so that her make-up wasmore defined and this meant that it also suited my genre of magazine more.Researching different front covers made a very big difference in my music magazine as it meant that I had examples to look and getinspiration from. It also meant that I had for cover lines ect. So I could make them sound more real.In conclusion I think that my level of skills has developed massively between my Preliminary magazine and my music magazine as I think thatmy magazine has moved to a better quality of magazine and looks more professional. This is because the images, layout and titles are all of ahigh standard. Therefore I think I was successful in improving my magazine front cover.
Preliminary Magazine Music Magazine I think that my contents page for my music magazine had massively improved from my Prelim. magazine as I had a better knowledge of QuarkXPress and knew some of the basic tool and techniques to make the contents page., I was able to easily add images, text and change setting quite easily. Another way which my contents page has improved is the title of the page, as I have added a box around my music magazine title which makes it stand out more and be bolder, it also looks more professional than the prelim. Another thing which has improved is the content, as there is less images and more information on my music magazine which makes it look more professional and less like GCSE media work .However a thing that has stayed the same in my music magazine which was in my prelim Is the colour scheme, even thought the colourscheme is not the same on each page I have made sure that I stick to a max. of four colours on both, this makes it look professional.
Overall.Overall I think that my work has improved massively from mypreliminary task to my music magazine as I have both a betterquality of images and text which made itLook and sound more professional.Another thing which I have improved is that I have managed tokeep to more of a set theme, using the same colours, text style ectto give it a professional look.So to conclude I think my music magazine was more successful asseen as I had a set target audience it meant that I would be able tomake the magazine suit them, which it did.
