Transcript

  • 1. Planning/Creating My Magazine
  • 2. Planning/Creating My Front Cover
  • 3. Mode of Address
    In my magazine I am aiming to write information in a combination of formal and informal language, for example when a lead singer is talking about their new album I will allow ‘slang’ words and text speech but the rest well be in standard English so that it is understandable.
    Furthermore, I plan to use exclamation marks to excite the reader and the use of ellipsis and quotes to lure the reader in. I feel that this will target a younger audience which is what I am trying to achieve.
  • 4. Fonts
    I used the website Dafont to find myself a font to use for my Masthead. For the rest of the writing I will choose to use the Calibri font as I feel it is clear to read.
    I decided to deliberately spell Indie like INDI to give this unique feel also making this font larger than the rest.
    I decided to choose this one as it is simple and easy to read and due to the large font I feel it will stand out well.
  • 5. Use of Flashes
    I do not think I will use many different types of flashes and shapes on my Front cover of my magazine. I will use a circle to put information in giving a smooth chilled out feel which will attract to the Indie genre.
  • 6. Use of Colours
    These are the colours I have decided to use for my Front cover of my magazine. As I am attracting a young audience who enjoy listening to Indie music I feel that these colours connect to my audience. These colours gives a feel of originality and difference and would appeal more to a male audience.

    • I used Photoshop to edit my image for the front cover to give the picture a stronger look to it.
    • 10. First of all I unsharpened the mask then adjusted the levels then changed the brightness and contrast.

  • 11. Then I used the magic wand to click on the wall so I could change the colour to purple. I feel that this colour seems better and gives off a deeper atmosphere.

  • 13. Final Version
    I have decided to make my magazine in a squared shape, a similar size to a CD album but larger. I have chosen to do this because the aim of my magazine is all about latest releases on new albums so I feel this will link well and the readers will understand what my magazine is all about when picking it out from the shelves.
  • 14. Planning/Creating My Contents Page
  • 15. Use of Flashes
    I do not think I will use many different types of flashes and shapes on my Contents Page of my magazine. I will use a rectangle to put text in this giving a rigid ‘cool’ feel which will attract to the Indie genre.
  • 16. Use of Colours
    These are the colours I have decided to use for my Contents Page of my magazine. I want to use the same colours as the Front Cover to show a connection throughout my magazine. As I am attracting a young audience who enjoy listening to Indie music I feel that these colours connect to my audience.

  • 21. I used a circular template to create a CD shape, however I made a mistake by keeping white bits on the left side.
    So I adjusted the template so I could get the image in the CD only.
  • 22. I then cut the CD to give this broken look to it.
    Finally I have given this blurry effect at the end of the CD to make it a stronger image. Also I placed a small white circle in the middle to make it look more like a CD.

  • 24. Final Version
    Continuing on from the Front Cover, my Contents Page is square shaped as well. So when opening this page, I want it to feel as if your opening a real CD album as I have a Broken CD in the contents page giving a scruffy feel which will appeal to the young Indie audience. By giving this effect like a real CD album this will give a sense to the reader that this magazine will be about albums.
  • 25. Planning/Creating My Double Page Spread
  • 26. Use of Flashes
    I do not think I will use many different types of flashes and shapes on my Double Page Spread of my magazine. I will use a rectangle to put text in this giving a rigid ‘cool’ feel which will attract to the Indie genre.
  • 27. Use of Colours
    These are the colours I have decided to use for my Double Page Spread of my magazine. I want to use the same colours as the Front Cover and the Contents Page to show a connection throughout my magazine. These colours gives a feel of originality and difference and would appeal more to a male audience.

  • 30. Final Version
    Continuing on from the Contents Page, my Double Page Spread is square shaped as well to give this opening up an actual album feel.
    I have used a similar layout to this double page spread as we are both appealing to the same genre.
