STEP BY STEP PRINT SCREENS – CONTENTS PAGE
I have used InDesign to create my contentspage, however I have also used Photoshopto alter some of the photos and edit some ofthe headings on the page.I will add place the masthead at the top ofthe page written in the same font as thefront cover masthead.The masthead will have a small image ofthe title of the magazine so that its clear thereader is reading Note magazine and thatthey are reading the contents page.
I then added a small paragraph that waswritten by me as the editor to introduce theaudience and tell them what the magazine isabout and what it will contain, this is goodbecause it will show the reader what they areto expect when they buy the magazine andcan be sure the news is exclusive and new tothe music industry.
I have then added a photo of one of my mainfeatures in the magazine. I have altered thecolours, red-eye remover and depth onPhotoshop of the image to make it look moreinteresting and exciting to the reader.I have added a small anchor article so that theaudience know who she is and what they canexpect to read in the article about her.
To the left hand side of the page I added thepage numbers and contents of the page downthe side. The numbers are written in largeblack bold numbers so the reader is clear asto what page they will have to go on in orderto find the article they are looking for.The large number 3 which is placed over thephoto so that it is clear to the reader that theyhave to go on to page 3 to find the article on‘Laura B’
To add to my magazine I have added anadvertisement to the contents page and animage to anchor it down and to add moreinterest for the reader.I used the rectangle tool on InDesign andchanged the colour to fit in with the colourscheme of the mast head and it is the only bigblock of colour on the page to show interest.I have enlarged the beginning of everysentence and the £1.50 to emphasise theprice and the key words to show what thereader will be receiving from subscribing.
I then added a main cover line on thecontents page of the main feature inside themagazine ‘Abbie Field’ on InDesign I colouredthe writing red and outlined it with black tomake it more interesting. The writing is indifferent larger, bolder fonts. There is also ananchor – a short sentence explaining what thearticle will be about. ‘Exclusive interview with:’this adds some excitement for the readerbecause they believe they will be readingsomething that nobody else has beenreading. The page number is written next to itto show which page the article is written on.
To complete my contents page I added a listof the bands and artists that will be featuredinside my magazine. The artists I haveincluded were requested in the questionnairethat I handed out to my target audience to seewhat they want included.The title of the page is written in a redrectangle square that I created using the‘rectangle tool’, the writing is written in largeblack font this fits in with the theme of themagazine.
