Different Poses.... If I decided to have a girl on the front cover of my magazine, here are a few poses I could consider... I like the fact her body is at a slant, with her arms positioned different places on her body. In this image, kelly is revealing some of her stomach, which helps to appeal to guys. I like the contrasting colour clothing of black and white, and may consider this for when I come to taking my images. I quite like this pose and could possibly do somethingI like the pose and like the fact her hand is similar but interpret a microphone into it instead of araised to her face. I could possibly have necklace. I would need it to be not as close up, but Isomeone doing a similar pose but with a quite like the fact of having her arms raised, it couldmicrophone in their hand possibly. I also like make it look more symmetrical and organised.the fact her hair is blowing backwards, andcould experiment with doing something similarif I decide to have a girl on my front cover. I like the positioning of tulisa, with her hand on her hips and think that this could work quite well as a front cover image. Her dress is very revealing, and if I did something similar it could help to draw males as well as my target audience to my magazine. I like the fact the colour of her clothing, nail varnish, lipstick and eyes are all matching, and will consider this if I decide to have a girl on my cover. I think the pose is quite good, however it would need it to be zoomed out slightly in order to have cover lines around it.
Different Fonts....Here are some fonts that I found on dafont.com, these are the few that stood out the most to me. I want my masthead to stand out so wanta bold, strong font. I like the sort of ‘curly’ and rounded fonts, and think these would work well with the genre of my magazine being pop. Iquite like the top, right hand side font, this is similar to the masthead on ‘paper’ magazine, I think this one could work quite well. I alsoquite like the third one down in the centre, it is very bold and clear, and would be able to stand out against the image and cover lines.When I come to making my front cover, I am going to experiment with using a variation of these different fonts.
Lures.... Here are some of the lures I found on a variation of different music magazines. Most of which I found mention ‘free things’, I think this is quite persuasive and even if readers don’t like the bands featured they are still able to buy the magazine to get free gifts/music downloads. I also think that by mentioning free posters on my cover, it could help persuade my target audience of teenage girls to buy the magazine as some of them may wish to cover their bedroom walls with them. I also think that by mentioning the word ‘exclusive’ on the cover, readers automatically know that it is new, never seen before gossip, which could be helpful in persuading them to buy it. Finally, by having competitions where you can win something, readers are persuaded to buy the magazine to enter the competitions and win some amazing prizes.
Covers... I like the colour scheme of this magazine cover, and am I like the masthead of this considering using black, magazine, it is very white and pink on my cover. I colourful, easy to read and like the fact that the main bits stands out a lot. I like the of the cover lines have been fact that there is only a little done in pink, making them amount of cover lines, stand out more, and showing making it look organised the audience the main and not overcrowded.

Mastheads... This masthead is very colourful, reflecting the genre of pop. It is very bold, however I don’t think it really stands out that much. I don’t like the fact that there is an image underneath the masthead and will consider this for when I think that this masthead is okay. I think that I come to creating my magazine. all the colours work well together, and it is overall quite eye catching. I like the sort of bubble writing effect of the masthead and think it makes it stand out more.This masthead is very iconic,and well known.

Props/ clothing I could consider... If I were to have a guy, I could have them wearing some big headphones. The audience then will automatically know that it is a music magazine, and hopefully my colour scheme and masthead will easily show that its a pop magazine. If I were to have a girl, I could interpret a microphone in the image somewhere. I want to make it obvious to the reader that its a music magazine and I think that by having either headphones or a microphone, this will easily show that it is a music magazine. Guy... Girl...Here is some of the clothing that I could consider if I were to have Here is some of the clothing that I could consider if I were to have a girla guy on my front cover. I quite like the ‘fabulous’ cover on the on the front cover. I think that I want my clothing to match my colourprevious slide with harry posing with his hood up and this gave me scheme so could have my model in black shorts or skirt, with a brightthe idea of the hoody. In the first slide, liam is wearing chinos in his crop top, the colour dependant on the colour scheme I decide toimage, and this gave me the idea that I could possibly get my choose. I could possibly have my model in a smart dress. This wouldmodel to wear them. Also, in some of the magazine covers, they also have to match my chosen colour scheme and could help to makeare in white tops/shirts, so I could have my model posing in a shirt. my magazine come across as more realistic and sophisticated.
