Deconstruction of kerrang! magazinePresentation Transcript
I am able to clearly see that Kerrang! Is a rock magazine as it has a distorted, rough masthead and the style of the musicians on the front. Also the colour scheme is very dark suggesting it is a rock magazine, the style of the musicians on the front cover is very dark, often seen as the ‘rocker’ look. The rough edges of certain elements of the magazine also suggest the genre of music. Kerrang! Is a very successful rock music magazine and is published weekly. Q magazine and Kerrang! Have the same editor which would suggest why Q magazine has no general music genre. The colours contrast against the dark background, as white and red stand out a lot, also the guitar stands out as the musician is dressed in black, all this contributes to the ‘rock’ look of the magazine. In this particular issue the emphasis is on the writing in the centre of the cover, this is in bright writing while the musicians are in black which blends into the background.
Kerrang! Magazine The colour scheme of the magazine is spread throughout the magazine. The layout is very unorganised with pictures dotted around and writing split up by images. All of this portrays the rock genre as the writing is rough and distorted. The way the articles are written are very easy to understand and are basically written.
