Colour Schemes – Colours used are pink, white and black. This suggests the genre dance music. The colour scheme is less serious so they can target a younger audience. The colours are bright and stand out against other music magazines which are usually black, white and red. With the colours been so bright the magazine could of come out in summer time.Photography – The picture Writing style – For a fronthas been taken in a studio, cover there is quite a lot ofthis is normal for a magazine writing on it.

Colour Scheme – Different colour have been used on the contents page. The yellow from his top hasbeen used, but the pink colour isn’t so bright. The black and white has continued, which is the main baseof the colour scheme the other colours have been added to make it interesting and stand out.Photography – Studio andlocation images have been usedin the contents. This indicatesthat they are the main story. Theother images seem to be moregraphic this is expect in adance/clubbing magazine. In thelarger images the people areposing in them, the smallerimages seem natural or don’thave people in them.

Overall look – The look to the contents page is young. The type of fonts, images, what they are wearingand the lack or writing suggests this it also show who they are trying to target. Text/picture ratio – On this page there is more images to text. This is the least amount of writing I have seen on a contents page which suggest that the reading level of the magazine is quite low. With it been a dance/clubbing magazine the readers are probably more interested in what the people are wearing, how they look and what the latest gadget is so they prefer to look at images instead of reading text. This is how theyFonts – The fonts used for text and page numbers are very modern design their magazine to fitand graphical which fits in with. The page numbers are in a larger size their target audience.which suggests their importance.
Colour scheme – colours used on this page are black and white with a bit of pick, this stands outagainst the other colours. The pink colour shows that it is a dance/clubbing magazine as a rockmagazine is more likely to use red black and white. This magazine hasn’t used the same colour schemeall the way through therefore it doesn’t have a specific identity and probably changes it every time anew magazine come out.Photography – The picturehas been taken in a studio. Thepose is something that peopledo naturally but they way he islooking into the camerasuggests that it is posed. He iswearing a jacket, tie and shirt.This makes him smart, but thewhite jacket takes the showsthat he isn’t that serious.

There is anther image onthe other page in with thetext, however it isn’t him andsmall which shows that it can’t Writing style – They have written a paragraph explaining bit aboutbe that important. Dizzee Rascal and then done a question and answer style. This has taken away some class to the magazine. In the other magazine they have set it out in a different way.
Overall look – Compared to the other magazines that I have analysed this page doesn’t look thatserious and doesn’t have as much class. However this is better because of the genre of magazine it is. Itdoes give us a impression that it is about a rapper this could be because of the image and text used. Text/picture ratio – The text picture ratio is quite equal on this page. The text takes up one side of the page and the image the other. It is quite unusual for the text and images to be quale as in most magazine they tend to take up more space with images. There is quite a lot of writing on the page but it is broken up by questions and then the answers to them questions. I thought there would have been more images on the page than there is.Fonts – The fonts are simple, modern and bold. This is so it fits in withthe target audience. The size is quite small so they can fit all thewriting on one page.
