I choose the bright pink colour for the background of the article because with itbeing a pop music magazine I wanted to use a variety of colours. I also think thatit stands out and would look really good in an actual pop magazine and it’s alsopart of my colour scheme which fits in well.
I have put in the article text over both the pages of the double page spread. Ihave also added a heading which is just saying who the interviews are with. Onthe Quark express I have used a drop capital to stand out and have useddifferent colours for the interview questions and then the answers that the fanshave gave me.
Here I have added the image of Katy Perry which I took at her latest tour‘California Dreams’. I have cropped the photo on Photoshop to cut out the sides ofthe actual image where it was just stage lightning however it was really dark toinclude in the article and it fits nicely.
Next I added the image of Rihanna which I also took at her latest tour ‘LOUD’. Ithought it was a good idea to use an image like Katy Perry’s where both singers aresinging into the microphone with the other hand in the air. I also cropped the backingdancers out of this photo so that we can just see Rihanna. It works well because theartists look as though they are standing towards each other.
Finally, I added the main title of the article and made it stand out by using awhite colour to match the white coloured interview questions to the fans. I thinkthis also works well because it really stands out if you was to flick through themagazine.
I have further edited the article so that it fits better so I have extended the stand firstso that it all fits on one line and also links the two photos together which I think worksreally well. I have also added the magazine title and page number in both bottomcorners of the double page spread.
