  • 8. Develop: We decidedthat, instead of using a button in theshape of a circle, like a lot ofmagazines do, we would use a star.I think it’s more fitting with the targetaudience, and it draws attention tothe freebie, which our audienceresearch shows that people areattracted to magazine if there is afreebie.

  • 16. DEVELOP: Although my featuresare arranged intoblocks/paragraphs, I decided to notuse as much structure as most musicmagazines do. I decided to rotate myblocks, I think it is morerepresentative of the target audienceas being more fun, and lessstructured.DEVELOP: I wanted somearticles to be in a larger font thanothers to show importance and tostand out.
  • 17. CHALLENGE: I have not usedtitles at the top of each block offeatures. This is a common featurethat I decided to subvert becauseit makes our magazine unique anddifferent.

  • 24. CHALLENGE: I decidedthat, since the article is an exclusiveinterview about a new musicsensation, they have no clue whatshe’s like or what the article will say.By not using a pull-quote from thearticle, I am encouraging the audienceto read the article in order to discoverwhat they can about the artist.

  • 31. TECHNOLOGY Other technology used: iMovie (editing). BLOGGER: we used this in order to upload all our work onto the same website. It’s easy to use and convenient because you can edit posts after you’ve uploaded them. 1001 FREE FONTS: we used this website to download our fonts to use throughout our pieces. It was very fast and the fonts allowed our products to be original and different. INTERNET: we used the internet throughout the making of our products, and during research and planning also. It was beneficial because we could see other actual media products and we could use it for ideas. POWERPOINT: throughout the project, we used PowerPoint a lot to present research and analysis of other products. We used SlideShare to upload the powerpoints onto blogger, and PowerPoint and Slideshare, proved useful in the research stages of the project. PHOTOSHOP was a constant during the production of our products, we used it to edit photos, delete backgrounds, and put together the whole outcome. Sometimes it got a bit tedious while trying to get rid of backgrounds, but overall proved helpful during the production of the products. DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY such as video cameras and digital cameras, were useful throughout the project as we were using them in the preliminary through to the evaluation. These were necessary throughout the project as it allowed us to complete our products, as well as our audience research, which allowed us to complete our overall products.
  • 32. Preliminary I think that looking back on my preliminary task, my ability to use technology has improved, and I have learnt to successfully use Photoshop and other programs. Both magazines were aimed around the same ages, so there wasn’t much need to adapt to a different audience. However, the language between a school magazine and a pop magazine is that a school magazine would be more formal language, whereas a pop magazine would be much more fun and informal.Also, my productis a lot moreprofessional andsimilar to actualmagazines. Thisis due to theinternet and usingother examples ofmagazine coversand contentspages andDPS’s. Finals
