  • 5. <ul><li>Smaller text above the main cover of the magazine, advertising interview inside. </li></ul><ul><li>Main text in white and red, which stand out and draw attention to the front. </li></ul><ul><li>Band on front’s name in the middle on the top of the image. Centred, grabbing intended audiences attention. </li></ul><ul><li>Background is plain white and is barely visible. The white is not very eye catching, but frames the image nicely to make it more prominent. </li></ul><ul><li>Text and images overlapping the main image. </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller images and text at the base and around the sides illustrate the content of the magazine, but do not detract from the main feature. </li></ul><ul><li>Simple, eye catching, bold text that draws attention to itself. – Alliteration. </li></ul><ul><li>Main image photo shoot.

Looking at camera. </li></ul>

  • 7. <ul><li>Images are more of artists in performance. </li></ul><ul><li>Text in black and yellow, compliment each other. Yellow for titles and heading to make them stand out more than the detailed information in black. </li></ul><ul><li>Plain white background items on top stand out better. </li></ul><ul><li>Large picture in the middle right, different artist to the front cover, suggesting more than one artist has a feature within the magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller images of other artists around page more featured in magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>Small amounts of text/synopsis of article under/next to images of relevant artists. </li></ul><ul><li>Date </li></ul><ul><li>List of pages and what they contain down the side in a list. </li></ul><ul><li>Snippet of feature in a small paragraph. </li></ul>
  • 8. Main photo on contents page, photo shoot but not direct eye contact with the camera. Close up of artists face, sculpted hair, no makeup as male. Smaller photograph just below main image. Artist in performance instead of photo shoot. ‘Stage’ clothes in keeping with the genre of the magazine. Smaller photograph just below main image. Artist in performance instead of photo shoot. ‘Stage’ clothes in keeping with the genre of the magazine. Smaller photograph just below main image. Photograph is of the band not performing, but does not look like a photo shoot, more like a snap shot opportunity photo by a reporter. Smaller photograph just next to main image. Photograph is of the band not performing, looks like a photo opportunity of when the band were interviewed, not professional photo shoot. Smaller photograph just next to main image. Photograph is of the artist, it is an outdoor photo shoot unlike the front cover which would’ve been in front of a screen. Smaller photograph in the top left hand corner of another magazine cover, advertising another issue. Has photo of band on front from a photo shoot.
  • 9. <ul><li>Text in black, white and red, which compliment each other. Red is used for numbers and the background of specific headings, including the name of the magazine. White on black is used for the title of the page, ‘contents’. Black is used for all of the other information, what is on each page, this information does not need to be eye catching as the person reading the magazine would look for it if they wanted it. </li></ul><ul><li>Date </li></ul><ul><li>Plain white background items on top stand out better. </li></ul><ul><li>Large picture in the middle right, different artist to the front cover, suggesting more than one artist has a feature within the magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller image of other artist, more artists featured in magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>List of pages and what they contain down the side in a list. </li></ul><ul><li>Small amounts of text/synopsis of article under/next to images of relevant artist. </li></ul><ul><li>Snippet of feature in a small paragraph. </li></ul>
  • 10. Main photo on contents page, outdoor photo shoot, staging similar to a front page, main band member nearer the front, with others behind. Smaller photograph just below main image. Photo shoot again, with more of a scene with pillar as a main part of photo with artist leaning against it.
  • 11. <ul><li>Date </li></ul><ul><li>Text in black, red and white, which stand out against each other. Red is used as a background for other text mainly, but is also used for the name of the magazine. White writing is used on top of red and black blocked backgrounds so it stands out as a title. Black text is used for all other information, what is on each page, this information does not need to be eye catching as the person reading the magazine would look for it if they wanted it. </li></ul><ul><li>Large picture split in two of two artists, in the middle of the page, this suggests that more artists are interviewed or reviewed inside of the magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>Small amounts of text/synopsis of article under image of relevant artist. </li></ul><ul><li>List of pages and what they contain down the side in a list. </li></ul><ul><li>Snippet of feature in a small paragraph. </li></ul><ul><li>Plain white background items on top stand out better. </li></ul>
  • 12. Half of the main photo on the left hand side. Photo is of artist in performance not a photo shoot unlike most front cover’s. It is a mid shot of the artist. Half of the main photo on the right hand side. Photo is of artist in performance not a photo shoot unlike most front cover’s. It is a mid shot of the artist. Photographs of different front covers, advertising a subscription to the magazine.
  • 13. <ul><li>Title is in style of artist, possibly the same as they use on their album cover/their logo. Title is the name of the interview. </li></ul><ul><li>Photograph is an ‘action’ shot of the band, it also covers the whole of the back of the interview page. Photograph also covers two pages. It is taken in a natural setting without any backing sheets. </li></ul><ul><li>Text has no restricting boarders, and it just laid over a blank space in the photograph. This makes it look modern and radical. The main text is also in smaller font. </li></ul><ul><li>There is large text above the main interview with the band, with the hook line’s to draw the reader in. This is in bigger bolder text in order to stand out and be read first. </li></ul>
  • 14. <ul><li>Title uses two different font’s. This possibly shows how this particular artist brings together two styles of music. The word ‘Gothic’ is in a different colour to the majority of the page spread, to make it stand out. It also over laps the image. </li></ul><ul><li>The photograph is posed, of the artist in front of a church, this is also in keeping with the theme of the interview. The photograph is also in black and white which gives it more impact. It also covers the majority of two pages. It is taken in a natural setting without any backing sheets. </li></ul><ul><li>There is large text above the main interview with the band, with the hook line’s to draw the reader in. This is in bigger bolder text in order to stand out and be read first. Giving the reading audience a short insight into what the interview will involve. </li></ul><ul><li>The text is to one side, giving the most attention to the photograph. It is white writing over a black background which is very common in music magazine interviews. The main text is also in smaller font. </li></ul>
  • 15. <ul><li>Title uses two different colour’s, the red is very effective because the majority of the spread is in black and white and two different sizes of text, the bigger text being the name of the band, which would draw in readers interested in this band. </li></ul><ul><li>There is slightly larger text above the main body of the article. This is the hook line giving main information about the article. The band’s name, as in the title, is in bold. </li></ul><ul><li>The text is in two small blocks to one side of the double page spread. It is white writing which is in keeping with the page colour theme. The writing is over a black background which makes it stand out. </li></ul><ul><li>The main photograph is of the artist performing live. The photograph, again, is in black and white which gives it more impact. </li></ul><ul><li>There are smaller photographs underneath the main text, these photos are of other members of the band performing and recording. Again in black and white. </li></ul>
