  1. 1. Media Coursework Evaluation By Aysha Crawley
  2. 2. Comparing my media product to existing ones <ul><li>Red is a common colour to be used on magazine covers due to its connotations. Although I have not followed this trend with my magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>I have used the following conventions; a master head; magazine logo; large image; variety of font sizes; badges to highlight certain information and puffs and commands. </li></ul><ul><li>Like existing magazines I have stuck to a basic colour scheme. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Comparing my media project to existing ones <ul><li>Both examples and my contents page have large font across the top. </li></ul><ul><li>My contents is similar to Q’s because both have highlighted headings concerning the content. </li></ul><ul><li>All three pages have a large picture which is related to a feature within the magazine to variety. </li></ul><ul><li>However my page contains far less writing than NME or Q. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How does your media product represent particular social groups? <ul><li>My target audience is male. The title relates to my target audience because grey is a masculine colour. The word primal has a meaning of being of the greatest importance, and this then comes across to the reader. </li></ul><ul><li>The connotations of my colour scheme is as follows; </li></ul><ul><li>Blues; harmony and peace </li></ul><ul><li>Grey; modesty </li></ul><ul><li>Yellow; happiness and joy </li></ul><ul><li>These all represent and relate to the genre of the magazine, acoustic music, therefore relating to the target audience as well. </li></ul><ul><li>My magazine also contains images of recognisable acoustic artists, a female to catch their eye and a male acoustic artist they may look at as a role model. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? <ul><li>http:// www.bauer.co.uk / </li></ul><ul><li> http:// www.bauermedia.co.uk /magazine </li></ul><ul><li>I have chosen Bauer publishing group (a branch of Bauer media group) to distribute my magazine because they a large scale successful company who can reach my target audience easily. They also have existing music magazines targeted towards men. </li></ul><ul><li>Some magazine already produced by Bauer include Mojo </li></ul><ul><li>Kerrang! </li></ul><ul><li>Q </li></ul>
  6. 6. Who would be the audience for your media product? <ul><li>My target audience are male and between 14-19 years. </li></ul><ul><li>From either C2 or D social class </li></ul><ul><li>They like the idea of buying something they have just read a review on. </li></ul><ul><li>They like acoustic/ alternative music and buy this often. </li></ul><ul><li>My audience will possibly be musical, therefore instruments interest them. </li></ul><ul><li>They like to listen to new bands but existing ones too. </li></ul><ul><li>My audience like their dress sense to reflect their music. In other words, dress like the artists they listen to. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? <ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from the full product? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I feel more confidence in what I can design and produce. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I think the quality of my work has improved. My music magazine looks more like a magazine than my school magazine does. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>I understand and I have learnt more about the forms and conventions of magazines. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Next time round I would focus on getting more appropriate pictures and making sure they fit magazine conventions and the target audience. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>I have learnt is it best not too over complicate designs. </li></ul><ul><li>Photoshop is only suitable for picture editing, too complex for creating entire magazine covers. </li></ul><ul><li>Photoshop is helpful for double pages </li></ul><ul><li>Word and paint are simpler and quicker to use. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Audience feedback <ul><li>Final Task </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback </li></ul><ul><li>‘ similar colour scheme to preliminary task, although looks more like a magazine, much better tag lines’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ this follows a lot more forms and conventions than the preliminary task’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ good use of variety of cover lines’ </li></ul><ul><li>‘ white background could have been edited to become more eye catching’ </li></ul>
