For my presentation I shall be demonstrating the 7 aspects of which I will be comparing my finished music magazine against. I shall been demonstrating the skills that I have developed, my finished product and the build up to the construction of the music magazine.
For my initial ideas I drew I collection of designs of which will be the foreground for my final music magazine through the research which I carried out at the start of this task. The initial ideas have given me a good insight to the final structure of it and have proven useful as feedback material
My conventions have been portrayed by the music magazine that I research, one which Mixmag has been the style model for my magazine as it fits my genre style and has provided an insight into what conventions are portrayed in a magazine.
Examples Large preliminary images that are the focus of the magazine Large name that takes up the top third of the magazine and the colour changes depending upon the subject matter The subject matter influence the colour scheme of the magazine and is constant for the whole front cover A small amount of advertising text which summaries some aspects of the magazine.
There was a large amount of development through the creation of my music magazine, these changes were based upon audience feedback and personal preference.
Development-Front Cover As is shown in figures 1a and 1b there is a some unnoticeable differences and some aspects of the magazine that are the main focus have been changed upon the feedback that I was given by various sources. Figure 1a is my final copy and 1b is the first copy Name and style Picture 1a (above) 1b (below) Text
Name and style- It is changed from vibe and with heart-monitor style to Orbit with the 'O' acting the centre of attention.
Picture- It's background is no longer blue and and has been retaken in focus
Text- Unnecessary text has been removed to bring focus to image
Development-Contents Page The development for my contents page shows more noticeable change towards the different styles and layouts of the contents page, with distinctive differences between Figure 1a (Top- Final draft) and Figure 1b (Bottom-First draft) Colour scheme Text Structure and layout Image
Differences Colour scheme- The colour scheme has changed from white to black (to match the style of the style model. Text- The amount of text and items of text has been changed (to match the style of the style model and make it more user friendly) Structure/Layout- Images/text locations have been changed and preliminary text has been moved (make the magazine more user friendly and look more professional Images- Have been retaken and replaced (to ensure that all images look professional)
Development-Double Page Spread I have not changed many aspects of my double page spread, this is because the audience feedback was positive about it and any changes were because of personal preference or slight audience feedback. Figure 1a (Top-Final draft) Figure 1b (Bottom-First draft) Icons Text
Differences Icons- Icons at top of page changes (to look more similar to the style model) Text- Overcrowding text has been removed (to make it user more Friendly)
Through out the duration of the course I have developed many skills of which I have demonstrated with in my work to ensure the it both looks professional and presentable. These skills have been developed across many different fields, an example of which is Photoshop (shown on the right)
This shows me using the magnetic lasso tool to cut out the image with precision
