Front Cover Analysis of Music Magazine By Saba Kebede
Chosen Image I have chosen this image for my final music magazine front cover. This image clearly represents my genre of music which is R&B and Hip Hop music, as Lara is holding the headphones in a location where a music video of this particular genre, would take place in. The lighting is clear and there is a shallow focus where the foreground, middle ground and background are all in focus. The image of Lara is in the centre, in which is effective as there is considerable space to place my masthead, main coverline, coverline, kicker and explanatory text as well as the dateline, Priceline and barcode.
First Draft This is my first draft for my music magazine front cover, and I made relevant changes to make it more appealing to my target audience. I changed the fonts from “FONT” to “FONT”, as well as the fact that I changed the positioning of the coverline, and kicker and explanatory text. I also changed the names of the artists at the top of the magazine, from “Beyonce”, “Rihanna” and “Mariah Carey” to “Beyonce”, “Rihanna”, “Ne-Yo”. I made the font smaller so it doesn’t take up most of the top bit of the magazine.
To change the name’s of the artists Put the Issue and Dateline underneath the masthead Make sure that there are no typo’s. Eye Flow Make the Barcode bigger and clearer Change the font to another appealing font Change the positioning of the explanatory text from the right to the left
Second Draft This is my second draft for my music magazine front cover. I received feedback, and so I made the significant changes necessary in order for my magazine to look approachable and well-presented. From the feedback that I received, I made sure that I spread out the different texts so that the reader can read it clearly and made sure that it followed the eye flow.
