The colour blue on the back of their headline shows an important point, blue is also used on the pug and enlarged text so the reader takes notice. The colour blue is also a cool colour with teenagers (mirroring the headline) Although it could be said that blue has a stereo type of a colour for boys, this colour may offend the audience in somewhat to elate the double page to boys only.

This contrast makes the text stand out and gives a bold effect on the double page spread. The background colour is dark and miserable although its easy for the reader to read the text this colour may bore the reader and give a dismal feel upon the magazine.
