This is an example of a
magazine advert I found on
Google images. The adverts
purpose is to create awareness
and to sell. All magazine
adverts have many common
• Artists face & name
• Date of release
• Picture of album cover
• Website link
Artist name: The name is also written in bold writing to catch
peoples attention. Some artists have a unique personalised name,
in the form of a logo. This is so that people can recognise the
CD Album cover:
Adverts show the
Cd album cover
so that people can
identify it in the
shops when they
go to purchase the
Artists face: A big
picture of the artist
is commonly used,
this is to help people
recognise who the
person is. Also it can
be used to attract
Adverts use the
people can go to it
Although we are not creating a magazine cover, it
will help us a lot through researching existing
magazine covers. This is because firstly there
aren’t a lot of magazine adverts out there
anymore since everything is digitalised
nowadays. Also, there are many similar features
used for both adverts and covers. The next few
slides should explain why.
Looking at this Country magazine, I
have learnt that they use the colour
orange as mentioned in our CD Cover
Also, the artist is wearing a cowboy hat
and is holding an acoustic guitar.
This gives a country feel and people can
identify the genre by looking at the
conventions of country.
Just like a magazine advert, the title is
in big and bold writing. The picture
also stands out and the text work
around the picture harmoniously.
Pop magazine are more to do with
star construction. Here we can see
Rihanna in a provocative and
revealing stance, Pop exposes a lot
of nudity and beauty to the
audiences. The purpose is to
quickly gain the readers attention
hence why bright colours are used.
The Title is in big bold writing but
does not block the picture.
