  • Evaluation- 1) In what ways doesyour music magazine use,develop or challenge forms andconventions of real musicmagazines?I have used many keyconventions in my musicmagazine. I followed regularkey conventions of magazinefront covers and I alsochallenged some.
  • Key Conventions of Front Pages:
  • Front Cover• On my front cover, I followed some of these keyconventions, for example, my main image wasoverlapping the masthead which many musicmagazines that I researched also did.• I also used the Z formation so display importantitems of information that were spread out across myfront cover.• Another key convention I followed was the mastheadbeing in the top left corner, I did this because all themagazines I had researched followed the sameconvention, and when I asked my target market, theysaid that was the area they were most drawn to.• A key convention that I challenged was the use of 3complimentary colours. Most music magazine frontcovers that I researched use 3 key colours thatcomplimented each other. However, to fit the specificstyle of my magazine music genre, I kept the colourscheme simple. I used mainly black for the textbecause it stands out against the off whitebackground. I had the model wear a colour thatdidnt stand out too much unlike most magazinecovers, because I didnt want too much vibrantcolours on the cover, only a subtle hint of colourwhich I used in the bottom right corner. This alsoallows more attention to be drawn to that area, wherethere is most colour. View slide
  • Key Conventions of Contents Pages: View slide
  • Contents Page• The key conventions that I followed werehaving the title CONTENTS running across thetop of the page, I found this made it stand outmost, and balanced out the page.• I also noticed that during my research, mostmusic magazines use the same colours fromtheir front cover on their contents page. I didthis by using the same blue green colour frommy cover, as the font colour and line colour onmy contents. I found that this helps continuethe brand identity from the cover of themagazine, on through the rest of the magazine.• The key conventions that I developed werehaving the text left aligned in a column. Mostmagazines I researched had the titles andinformative text on the left side of the page,however I challenged and developed this bysplitting the text into two columns and havingone on the right and one on the left. This splitup the page and balanced it.• Another convention that I challenged was theplacing of the page numbers. The contentspages that I reviewed often had the numberbefore the text, however I placed it after thetext, and I felt that made the information moreinformal and ordered.
  • Key Conventions of Double PageSpreads:
  • Double Page Spread• The key conventions that I followed werehaving the title ‘ACOUSTICALLY ACCLAIMED’running from the left to right of the page, whichI found most double page spreads in a musicmagazine did. However I developed thisconvention by taking the second half of the titleand putting it across the page on the right side.• I followed another convention which is the useof a drop cap. I made the F a large font to drawthe readers in, and make the text look morecreative. Most double page spreads did this.• I also used 2 pull out quotes because themagazine double page spreads I researched hadan average of this many. I saw that they madethe quote marks a large font to draw the eye into that area and attract the readers attention, Ifollowed this convention.• I kept the colour scheme very similar to thecontents page to keep the sense of brandidentity running through my pages. Everymusic magazine I researched kept a colourscheme constant, so I followed this conventionto make the magazine seem more professional.I also made sure the colours were soft, and nottoo vibrant to appeal to the target market andsuit the genre of music.
