I tried to target my magazine towards similar viewers of Kerrang and Q.
This target audience are in a similar age group to me, and maybe older.
This magazine is aimed at people who like alternative rock and pop, as
well as other music genres.
Bauer Media Group may want to publish my magazine, as they publish Kerrang
and Q these two magazines are the two I tried to design my magazine from.
My magazine could also be given as a free download to generate interest, this

and Screamo, I want my magazine to consist of the Indie/rock but not much of the Screamo

to use with a wider range of functions available to use.
I feel I have learnt a great deal from doing my final product compared to my prelim task,
something I feel I have greatly learnt on is the layout and design for my magazine. From comparing
the final product to my prelim task I think they look totally different and the final product looks
