  • 1. By Jessica Murray
  • 2. Rock Mayhem is a new magazine aimed at a target audience of males aged 16-19. TheMajority of my readers are most likely to be male teenagers, this is because I have basedmy magazine design on the responses I got from the survey I created a few weeks ago.The main responses I got stated that the main thing that would make a magazine looklike drivel would be the price & layout, so with this in mind I have decided to make mymagazine quite cheap and with the use of simple yet decent colours; means that it couldgather a much wider audience.‘Rock Mayhem’ magazine wasn’t the original name, because of this issue I decided thatthe magazine was going to be called Rock Mayhem, this is because after researchingthe name I found out that their was already a magazine called ‘Mayhem’. As a result ofthis I decided it would be best to change the name to Rock Mayhem, this also wouldmake it easier for the audience to establish that the magazine is about rock music. Thefont that my magazine name will be using is going to be ‘Ink in the meat’ this font isdownloaded from a website called Dafont.com. The reason I decided to use this font isbecause overall it was the most eye-catching font after researching about othermagazines I’ve found that the majority of them have quite attention-grabbing magazinenames.
  • 3. This magazine will have a large photograph of the band as a part of the background but in theforeground it will have information about an interview with a famous band. Alongside thisthere will be information detailing about the upcoming gigs. It will also have reviews aboutnew music that’s new to the scene. Another way the magazine will be catching the audiencesattention is by the article; it will be very detailed with lots of information about the lives ofmusicians and how they rose to fame.The layout is going to be quite simple with the front cover only having two images of twobands. The photographs that I will be using will be of the band members just stood together.It will be simple in style with pictures, there will be more images than text this is becausefrom the research I gathered together I found that most rock magazines have morephotographs than text.The double page spread will be an interview with a famous band, it will be very detailed withthe band discussing their brand new album and tour that will be coming up in the summer.The interview will be between 2-4 paragraphs long, it will also be supported by a backgroundphotograph of the band performing at a gig.
  • 4. This is the most important font that I will be using because this is the font forthe main title Rock Mayhem, this font is called Ink in the Meat and wasdownloaded off a font website called dafont.com This font is known as Goudy Stout and it will be the font that I will be using for the titles onTitles my magazine front cover.
  • 5. Colour SchemeThese are four main colours that I will be using in my magazine. I will beusing a band image for the background. I will be using Blue for thePrice, Date & Issue Number title. Whereas for the Text, Titles and cover linesI will be using either red and white. Equally for the Main header I will beusing black.
  • 6. Photography & ImagesThe images below are the types of images and photography I will be using. Ihave decided that I would like my magazine to have simple yet effectiveimages. I would like my photographs to be in Black and white, with the imageonly showing the band members.
