My target readers were mid-teens to young adults, so fromabout 16 to 25 years old.I researched on variousdifferent websites exactly whatthese ages are stereotypicallyinterested in. After getting anunderstanding of what theyare interested in, I referredback to my focus group andother people who are thesame age for specific detailsabout what they like to read.From this information, Iproduced a reader profile forthe ideal demographic for mymagazine – a description ofexactly who would be theperfect reader.
After the research and reader profile were completed, I decidedon what genre of magazine I wanted to do and that was theindie music genre.I represented this social group by having an indie-girl as my artist,therefore featuring her on the front cover, contents and double-page spread of my music magazine.It was obvious she was in the indie genre of people because shewas dressed in a summery dress and sitting on a beach. However,she had curly, messy hair with a flowery band.I have also mentioned indie bands in the magazine such as‘Bombay Bicycle Club’, and Reading Festival which is known to beindie-rock.
