Colours These are the colours that I will use on the cover of my magazine, as they are simple and effective. The orange is very eye-catching while the other colours complement it.
My magazine name is “ZERO DEGREES” This is the font I am using for my masthead on my front cover
Flashes On my front cover I am going to stick to the rectangles, this makes sure that they do not detract from the main image, I will just use different shades of grey on the rectangles.
Mode of address I will use an informal mode of address so that this melds with my target audience of 16-25 year olds. This is because they also have an informal tone and mannerisms, so if the magazine has these then it will be familiar and relatable and create and nourish a reader – writer relationship. For example I could put “don’t miss out on these crazy prizes”. I could also address them by having articles and adverts that cohere with them as well. For example, I could feature articles that show new up and coming bands and artists that not many older people will of heard of, or I could have adverts showing the most recent technology and entertainment.
