My front cover is considerably lacking all of thesethings, and therefore needs to have quite a lot addedto it to make it more professional-looking. I will try outa variety of new fonts and make the artist’s namebigger so that it takes up more space. I also quite likethe idea of having a ‘puff’, something which appearsvery often at the top of conventional front covers. Icould also try to make the fonts more colour co-ordinated with the main cover image, as most othermusic magazines seem to generally follow this rule.
