Colour Scheme: Red, black, white<br />Font: Arial<br />Consistent Colour Scheme/Font<br />As you can see the colour scheme has been used quite consistently, this stemmed from the design of the listings magazine logo “TV Guru”. I think that the colours compliment each other really well and gives an overall professional and sleek look. The font style I have used is ‘Arial’ because of its plain, basic look, this allows me to used it with all my products as it is quite standard. <br />

In March 1991, the control on listings magazines ended and the market was opened up. Before this, there were two magazines in the market: Radio Times which was launched in 1923 and for BBC listings and TV Times which was launched in 1955, for ITV and Channel 4 listings in 1982. More magazines were appearing in the market at that time, TV Quick, What's on TV and TV Plus (which did not last). By the mid-1990s What's on TV was Britain's best-selling weekly magazine but in 2008, TV Choice which was launched in 1999 gained a higher distribution.<br />
