  26. 26. Photography<br />The magazines in which I researched featured posed photography on the front cover. Therefore I followed this convention by using a posed photograph on the front cover for my magazine. I was inspired by this particular image as this magazine issue was published in the 80s and the style of image I wanted to use for my magazine was an old image that would have originally been taken in the 80s.<br />
  27. 27. Mastheads<br />When carrying out my existing product research I found that the masthead was always across the top of the page. Therefore I followed this convention by putting the masthead on my magazine across the top of the page.<br />
  28. 28. Cover lines<br />The magazines in which I researched features cover lines on the front cover. This is done to attract the audience to buy their magazine. Therefore I followed this convention by using cover lines on the front cover of my magazine to attract my audience.<br />
  29. 29. Text/Articles<br />All of the magazines that I researched featured articles inside the magazine on the double page spreads therefore it was a necessity for me to follow this convention. I featured a relevant article, to what my magazine would publish to suit its audience, on my DPS.<br />
  30. 30. Bar code<br />Bar codes are needed on a magazine in order for people to purchase the product. Not all of the magazines that I researched featured bar codes on the front cover however they will have featured somewhere on the magazine. <br />
  31. 31. Contents page<br />When carrying out my existing product research I found that all magazines have contents pages in order for the audience to find out what features on each page, making it easier to locate different aspects of the magazine. I followed this convention by featuring a contents page in my magazine. However, I did develop this convention by making my contents page less structured and more random. I haven’t presented it in columns, instead in boxes in different colours broken up by images.<br />
  32. 32. Fonts<br />Page numbers<br />Page numbers are featured in all magazines to match the contents and so people know where they are in the magazine. Therefore I followed this convention by featuring page numbers on my magazine.<br />Bold and simple fonts are used so that they are easy to read and stand out therefore I followed this convention.<br />
  33. 33. Colour Scheme<br />The music magazine in which I researched that was actually published used bright colours with a white background.<br />I developed the conventions of this 80s magazine colour scheme by changing the background from completely white to grey and white to make it more modern.<br />
