The typography uses the same font and the same colour scheme through out the front cover. It uses a bright purple colour and white and blue text. All of the titles are on one side of the titles for what is it the magazine and this makes it looked cluttered The type of language used is directed at media students words such as Photoshop and photography. The bright headers make you attracted to the magazine but when you look at it the background makes the white text hard to read. There is a mid close up and the front of a student taking a photo. There is school in the background or what looks like a school Doesnt use hotspots or route of the eye effectively. The mode of address is towards media student and tells you how to make the photos better.

School’s Out! I have chosen a sans serif font because it looks posh and classy this means that It will have a higher professional look to it. The font face is adobe Arabic. School’s Out! I have chosen a serif font this time, it is Bauhaus 3, this has a trendy and unique look to the text, it has a young look to the text and but not as neat and tidy as some of the others. School’s Out! ✓I have chosen another serif font because they look neater and a higher quality look tothem, this one has the font corbel, this looks good and trendy, it isnt as bold but stilllooks good. School’s Out! I have chosen another serif font, but this one is different to the others it has more of a square look to it, it is the Venus rising font. It isnt bold and it is all in capitals which attracts more attention.
Black, Red and white ✓I have chosen these colours, because they are the school colours, thismeans it will have a link with the school and keep to the house style ofthe schoolBlue, green and whiteI have chosen these colours because they have a good contrast and theyare bright, this means it will be eye catching and people will think itsmore exciting.Black, green and purpleI have chosen this colour scheme because, black and green go togetherwell and so does black and purple. These are also eye catching.
EvaluatingI have used media conventions in this task by planning out my drafts and making more than 1 draft, this meansthat I could look at the drafts to see what I could improve, this made the final one look a higher quality and thecover lines were in the correct places corresponding to the hotspots and the route of the eye. I have alsolooked at a range of fonts and colour schemes, I went for the one that had the school colours on so that itlooked like it was the schools magazine, and didn’t jut have random colours that went together well.The cover uses the camera angle of a low shot to make him look like having authority as he is the ‘Under 12Chess Champion’ it shows the importance of him and what he has achieved, also in the shot is the new schoolbuilding .The mise-en-scene makes the front cover look familiar to the school as it was taken out the front,people will recognise it. The image also shows of the younger years of the school instead of it just being theolder years on the front cover. The font and colours links with the school as it has Red, Black and white andwith the font that looks simple but effective using the black outline with a red fill.I have addressed my audience by a casual language, the reason for this is as it is a school magazine it will be foryears from 7 up to 13 so it will have to be suitable for all of the years. It is an formal type of address, it informsyou about what it is about but also is casual and easy to understand for all of the years. For example ‘Atriumcreates new work space for 6th form.’The skills I have learnt throughout the task are, how planning and annotating other people work help inspireyou and gives you ideas of what the final product should look like, as well as you making it look your own andhave your own style, to make sure I had done this correctly I drafted over work which helped me plan whereeverything would go. Also talking about colour schemes and font options gave me a wider range of variety ofchoice when making the magazine cover.
