Continued audience feedback

  1. 1. Continued audience feedback<br />Feedback from front cover drafts:<br />Katie Robb (15) :<br />I prefer draft number two, as there are plenty of pictures to give you a visual insight to what is happening in the magazine. I also like how the images relate to the quote, as it makes it more interesting. The main image is big therefore catches my attention immediately.<br />Jade Weedon (20) : <br />My favourite draft is ‘draft three’. My reasons for this is because it is simple, most music magazines are very busy which is off putting. I like the way there is one main image so it draws us in. I like the use of text at the top of the page. I suggest that Amy puts the main story in this area so it attracts attention to it. <br />Todd Ashton (17) : <br />The draft I think is the best out of the front cover drafts is draft 3. The reason for this is because it has a clear sky line above the masthead to get the reader drawn into the magazine before reading the other content. I like the fact that there is one big image which takes up most of the page and I think it would make the magazine more eye - catching. I like the use of cell lines as it can tell the reader about the content of the magazine. <br />Feedback from contents page draft: <br />Katie Robb (15) : <br />I prefer draft number three as the layout is clear and is structured well. I like how on the pictures the page numbers are shown. This means you do not have to read the whole contents which is good for me. I love the editor’s note as it personalizes the magazine making it more interesting to read.<br />Jade Weedon (20) : <br />The contents page I prefer is the first one. My reasons for this are that it is very clear and looks like a professional contents page. I like the ‘editor’s note’ at the lower right corner of the page as it is something I read myself in magazines and makes it interesting. The images with captions on stating the page in which the article on is very useful and effective because you do not need to read the actual contents to find the main articles.<br />Todd Ashton:<br />The best draft out of the three drafts is draft number three. The reason for this is that everything has its own section on the page making it very clear and presentable. The use of the editors note make the magazine more interesting as it is a feature that is used in some magazines can draw the readers in. I like the fact that the images have page number references so make it easy to locate the content. I also like the fact that there is a big mast head at the top of the page to catch the reader’s attention.<br />Feedback from double page spread drafts: <br />Katie Robb (15) : <br />My favourite is draft number two, I like how there is an equal amount of text and images; it makes a good balance so it looks more professional. The article title spreads across the double page; this will catch my attention and entice me into wanting to read it. Although I would prefer for the quote to be at the bottom of the page, as it is distracting in the middle.<br />Jade Weedon (20) :<br />The draft number two is my favourite layout for a double page spread. This is because it looks like a typical article spread. The way the article title goes across the width of the two pages it is very intriguing and would immediately attract my attention. The use of ‘pull quote’ is a good idea because when I read magazine first of all I look at the quotes. <br />Todd Ashton (17) : I prefer draft number two as there is a neat layout which looks like it would be easy to understand. I like the fact that there are lots of large images to give a visual explanation to the text. The images also make the pages more interesting. I like how the article title goes across both pages to make it stand out to the readers. I like the way the text is put into columns as I find it easier to read text in columns. The thing I don’t like about this draft is the use of the pull quote in that location as it takes away the attention from the main text which is more important. I think that the quote should be around the text and on in the middle of it.<br />Overall Results:<br />Front cover draftsContents page draftsDouble page spread drafts Draft 1/ /Draft 2/ / /Draft 3////Draft 4<br />Evaluation:<br />From the audience feedback on my three drafts I was able to see what drafts I should use for the front cover, contents page and double page spread of my magazine. The audience feedback gave me a chance to see how I can improve my magazine when it comes to creating it. <br />For the front cover I found that two people went for ‘draft three’ while one person went for ‘draft 1’. Some of the reasons that they liked it was the use of the main image. They liked the fact that the image took up the whole page so their attention was focused on it. The two people who chose ‘draft three’ liked the way there was a ‘sky line’. They said it was good because it will attract their attention. One of them said that I should put a main story heading in their as it will make them want to buy the magazine. From this feedback when creating my front cover I will defiantly insert the heading of one of my main articles in the sky line. <br />For the contents page I found that two people went for ‘draft three’ while only one went for ‘draft one’. The reasons draft three was most popular was because they liked the use of the ‘editors note’ from the feedback they said that this part personalises the magazine and is something they would read. They also liked the fact that the images on the contents page have page numbers on them to tell the reader what page the article is on. They said they liked this because they don’t like reading the whole contents so by having a page number reference they can flick to the best articles. <br />For the double page spread all three of the participants went for ‘draft two’. This is good because it shows that draft two is a strong design. I found from the feedback that they liked the layout but not the position of the ‘pull quote’. They said it was a little distracting placed in the middle of an article. They all suggested that I moved the pull quote of out that area and one suggested I put it in the corner. <br />Overall from the audience feedback I was able to see the good and not so good points of my magazine drafts. I have found some ways to improve the magazine such as moving the position of the ‘pull quote’. By following what my target audience sample say it will hopefully attract others like them.<br />
