1. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?<br />Conventional use of the use and range of colours. Both magazines mainly incorporate the use of red, white and black.<br />
Conventional logo, located at the top left of the front cover. Both logos are white rounded fonts which are placed on a red background, boxed off.<br />Both use mid shots of their main artists. My particular image is unconventional as the artist is not showing of his vast wealth or a body riddled with tattoos. <br />
Masthead<br />I’d say my masthead is rather conventional as I tried to emulate the ‘XXL’ logo, although I did add my own creativity.<br />The colour is an important factor as it could attract or repel consumers so I chose the red and white in order to create an attraction<br />
Cover lines<br />Common to most magazines, the cover lines never touches the main image and I have followed this convention<br />Only the main cover line can be seen to touch the main image<br />The main cover line and the following cover lines differ in their fonts. My magazine uses this trend<br />
Puff<br />‘DO IT WITH STYLE’ The particular puff I have chosen.<br />Puff’s are a conventional magazine technique which is employed, whereby a magazine brags about its feats.<br />Including a puff is the right choice, as the competition between magazines grow a puff creates individuality.<br />
