  • 2. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? Here my masthead keeps to the conventions of having the writing in font of the image so that it is clear to audience since is a new music magazine and can be recognised. The main image keeps to the convention of a magazine since it is a medium close up shot and the eye line of the person is in the top third. Also, I have similarly put the image more on the right side of the page. I have done this because when you read, you read from left to right. This means the image is the last thing you will see. I have followed the conventions of a music magazine by having a header and footer. This gives a final indication of what else can be seen inside the magazine. The allows me to put further information that will grab the readers attention. I have followed the conventions of a music magazine by having a header and footer. The header has been used to promote a competition. As the masthead is one of the first things you will see it also means a lot of attention will be given to the headers since it is above it. The footer gives a final indication of what else can be seen inside the magazine. This allows me to put further information that will grab the readers attention.
  • 3. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have challenged the conventions of a magazine by not using other images on the front cover of the magazine. This was done because I want the main focus and attention to be on the main cover image of the artist “Abbie Nicholls” rather than on other people. I have challenge the convention of this magazine by using more than two fonts. On my magazine I have used four different fonts. This has been done in order to highlight and draw attention to other parts of the magazine such as the masthead, main cover line, feature cover lines and the header and footer. I have challenge the convention of this magazine by using more than three colours.”Kerrang” have stuck to black, white and yellow. However, I have expanded and challenged the lack of colour use by using black, white, purple, pale blue and coral. The use of more colours allows my magazine to have specific feature and aspects stand out more such as the main headline “Abbie Nicholls”. This accent of colours helps it to draw attention.
  • 4. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have kept to the conventions of having a barcode on the front of my magazine. However, I have challenged the conventions of the location of the page. Where “billboard” puts it on the left side I have decided to put it on the right side. The rule of thirds means the left is the most important and the first thing the reader sees. Putting the barcode on the right side, means that price code isn’t the first thing you see, which could conflict the readers choice to buy it. I have followed the convention of “billboard” by having a quote from the article featuring on the front cover near the main cover line. It has been cleverly used in order to gain interest and curiosity as to who “Abbie Nicholls” really is. Also, it allows the reader to get a small insight as to what the article is really about. I have followed convention by putting a contrasting colour behind the cover lines. This allows that font to read and stand out better. In addition, they have been put into a column on the left side of the magazine in order to make it stand out due to the fact the left side is still showing when stacked.
  • 5. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have challenged the conventions by only using one colour in my masthead. I have done this because I have used other colours in order to highlight specific features of the cover lines. By sticking to plain white have everything else in colours allows “Rogue” to stand out. I have challenged the conventions by using a colour in the font for the main cover line. In “Billboard” the colour of the main coverline is white in and straight professional font. I went against this and opted to do something more fun and bold. The only accent of purple on the front cover is the main coverline. Doing this has allowed the name to standout against everything else on the front cover in order to encapsulate the readers attention. I have challenged the conventions of “billboards” decision to have the masthead behind the image of “Rihanna”. Having the writing in font of the image so that it is clear to audience since is a new music magazine and can be recognised.
  • 6. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? Similarly, I have put the title “contents” in the top right corner. This keeps to the convention of music magazines and all have the “title “ at the top of the page. Doing this makes my contents look profession and aesthetically pleasing I have also put and editors note on the contents page. The editor enables me to introduce the new magazine and also an insight as to what the magazine is about. The audience will find this interesting as it makes a connection between the audience and the creator of “Rogue” I followed the convention by adding a quote from the article in the double page spread. This allows the audience to get a sneak peek as to what the article is about, but also highlight who the person is in the contents page photo. I followed the convention by adding a date line to the contents page. I have done this because it is very common to see. Not putting it means that my contents page wouldn’t look aesthetically pleasing.
  • 7. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have kept to the convention of “Kerrang” magazine by using a variety of images on the contents page. Doing this means that I will in capture a wider variety of people from the audience who are into other bands and not just the main cover feature “Abbie Nicholls”. This then means my magazine has a wide variety which is pleasing to the reader. I have challenged the conventions the magazine by changing the font and size of the headlines. Doing this has allowed me to bring organisation to the magazines contents page. I followed the convention by making the page numbers stand out. Similarly, I have chosen a bold colour that is part of my house style. I chose the colour purple since it not only stands our against the white and black, but it is the same colour that is on the front cover. This helps o bring continuity to my magazine.
  • 8. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have challenged the conventions of “vibe” magazine by not having one main image on the entire contents page. I used more than one image so that I can attract a bigger audience by featuring more than one artists. The images have been used to represent their story as it attracts more attention than just using titles. I followed the convention by having a different font for the main head lines. The effect of this is the headings can stand out and divide the contents page into orderly sections easy for the reader to pick out specific articles they want to read. I have challenged the convention of “vibe” contents page by not having a “Feature” headline. I found that it was easier to split the features on the front cover into categories. It makes it much easier to navigate the different articles.
  • 9. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have challenged the conventions of having my main image not looking directly at the camera. However, this is similarly seen in this magazine. Doing this helps to show the softer side of the artist and their slight vulnerability, but also that they can be quite defiant. I have challenged the conventions of a drop cap. Typically, the drop cap should feature at the start of the article. However, I opposed that idea and put at the start of my introductory paragraph about “Abbie Nichols”. I decided to do that because I helped draw attention to the paragraph and show it is important to know a little bit about “Abbie Nicholls” first. The bold statements helps to represent how she her self is also a bold statement. I have followed the convention of having a different colour behind the image and the colour behind the text. . The plain black background helps “Abbie” to stand out. It also helps to connote her dark rock side. The background being white helps separate the two pages as the background on the other page is black. However, I have slightly challenged the plain white background behind the text by putting an orange “A”. The “A” represents the first letter of the artists name. This helps to make the article look a little more personal and clear who it is about. I have followed the convention of having a picture credit. This is to tell the reader who took the photo and the picture has been taken of. Also, it a chance to give credit to the make up/ fashion artists.
  • 10. Question 1: In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? I have followed the conventions of putting a large headline at the top of the first page of the artists name. It is important to make it as large and as clear as possible because you want the reader who is flicking through to have their attentions grabbed to read the article. I have followed the conventions of having a house style. Evidence for this is the feature colour of orange. In many magazines, they take a colour from the image and use it else where on the page. On my double page the colour scheme used on the double page spread coincides with the colour of the lipstick that the artist featuring is wearing. This makes the double page spread look coherent and makes a connection between the image and the text about the image. I have followed the conventions of having a introductory paragraph. Having this enables me to give a quick insight into who “Abbie Nicholls” before the actual article starts. This is very common to find in magazines. It is important that the audience, if they don’t already know, know who the cover artist is. It also allows you to get a brief idea what the article is about.
