Mixmag double page spread analysis, pages 1 and 2

  1. 1. Double-page spread analysis, pages 1 & 2. The double-page spread for ‘Mixmag’ consists of the typical codes and conventions which a music magazine would offer such as a drop cap, copy, columns, tone and register, lead image, by line and article title. The main image features Annie Mac; also the theme of the article and review of current affairs involving radio 1 and the music industry. This image may have been used in the double-page spread as the artist’s dress sense and style goes well with the colours used for the background. Target readers may be drawn to the house style of this music magazine as it features various well-known dj’s such as Annie Mac. The first letter of the first word of the main article is larger than the rest of the font as it introduces the article with ‘ in a windowless..’, this type of language encourages readers to continue reading. Words written by the journalist Joe Muggs (copy) features in a two-column double-page spread; flush left. The journalist uses descriptive language to appeal to the target audience, ‘which is blasting out a demented Jack Beats remix of Florence & The Machine’. The double-page spread is image led, although only revealing one image, the text is printed on top of the background complimenting the black on white effect. As an audience, we do not come across many direct quotes from the artist, Annie Mac, however the double-page spread is continued onto another page which the symbols suggest. Descriptive language is used such as ‘touring the UK constantly , providing a platform for a generation of youthful, bass-driven, live dance acts’. This gives us an insight to what the other features of the magazine have to offer. Metaphors are used in the headline; ‘Boom’ to encourage younger readers or the target audience, to become involved in the main purpose of the music magazine. A bold, attractive and colourful font has been used also in the headline to relate to the music artist herself, as well as the house style of the magazine.
