Construction of the double page spread for my music magazine By Rosanna Todd
1) Using InDesign I started to create my double page spread. I addedin the copy (text) into columns and edited the fonts. I also added amasthead and a standfirst. On the second page I added a pull quote andput the image in for the background so that it is an image led page.
2) Next I changed the colours of the fonts to more suitable colours whichwould attract the target audience. I also added in a black background soensured that the colours I used on top were bright so that they could still beseen. I also added a drop capital at the start of the article as this is a conventionused in real media products. Furthermore, I added picture and word creditsand another separate image of the artist at the end of the article. I also useddifferent coloured fonts for the question and answer parts of the article so thatit is clearer for the target audience to read.
3) I Decided to change the masthead so that it used up more room on thepage because there was too much blank space there previously. Existing articlesin music magazines have big chunky titles that take up a lot of the page. Iwanted to ensure that my magazine looked realistic so therefore I made thischange. I also think that it now looks more professional and stands out more onthe page which makes it more eye-catching for the reader.
