SloganIt is important to let your sloganbe known,hence why I made minebold and yellow (a colour thatstands out), so that when peoplesee or hear it any where else , theywill associate it with mymagazine. It should be clear forpeople to see that it is the sloganand like my case study I put it atthe top of the masthead stickingto the conventions as this was themost well-suited place.

I am using two colours for my subheadings this creates a noticeable layout of thepatterns and sections of the magazine. Below is an example of the colour codetechnique used in a magazine. But I am avoiding using more than four colours overall with my front covers text because if I do my magazine might resemble that of a child’s magazine - unsuitable for my target audience.
