    Colour scheme of yellow, green, pink and blue
    Free gift. Emphasised by colour
    Language popular with young girls
    Part of magazine sectioned off
  • Kerrang Contents Page
    An editor’s letter and an image of the next issue
    Title. Biggest font and contrasts with the black
    Contents page sectioned to different headings
    Many different thumbnails and their page no. underneath. Also a little summary
    A notice to persuade reader to subscribe
    Colour scheme: red, white and yellow
  • NME Contents Page
    Title, the red contrasts with the white
    Many other thumbnails
    One image larger than the rest. Includes word ‘exclusive’ which entices the reader
    Colour scheme: Red, black and white
    Page numbers in red, and artists name is bold and black
    Recurring features in the magazine
  • SmashHits contents page

    Title is the biggest font. Black contrasts with white

  • SmashHits Double Page
    One side taken up by image
    Text surrounds the images.
    Quote in red splits text
    Colour scheme: Blue, red and white
  • Features I would like to use
    I like the idea of having one main image that takes up all/ most of one side of the A4 page
    Main colours are red, black and white. However my audience wants blue so I will change red to blue
    Most of the text is in columns creates a nice layout- conventional
    Artists standing in front of the masthead
  • Continued…
    Quote from the interview as the main sell lines
    An editor’s letter to show friendliness
    Thumbnails on the contents page so it is not so blank
    Quotes put into the main text on the double page to break it up and entice readers
