Imebvore Aigbochie AS Media Double Page Spread Analysis 2 I like how these shapes on the page have really One of the first things we notice about this double page spread by XLR8R Magazine is the typography used in the headline, XLR8R has used quite a few colours in their smooth gradual tones going from one colour to which is very futuristic and dreamy almost like a concept car but in the form of text. The artist of which the article is about colour scheme but to down tone the use of another but to be honest I don’t like how they is ‘Skream’. Skream is a Dubstep producer and the music genre Dubstep has a very distinguishable sound which is very multiple colours they have made white they are placed. They cover up parts of the artists’ futuristic and robotic so XLR8R must’ve tried to reflect the sound of Dubstep into their chosen typography. The headline dominant colour on the page even though faces and also their hand action of ‘High Fiving’ ‘Whisper to – a Skream’ must be XLR8R’s way of representing rise to fame from being unknown (a whisper) to being famous there are other colours like light blue, light which signifies union between one another. (a ‘skream’) green, light pink and a pale yellow. XLR8R has Because of the shapes it obscures the facial deliberately used light colours and even expressions of these artists so maybe XLR8R put degradations from one colour to another on in these shapes to make people look away from this double page spread because using light these artists expression and focus more on the colour gradients and a lot of white makes a headline and article. page look calm, sophisticated and futuristic. Since listeners of Dubstep already know what type of style Dubstep tries to uphold the futuristic theme that XLR8R has tried to create will appeal to those audiencesThe large image which takes up the whole of the left page and some of the right is a mid shot If we look at the layout of the article we seeimage. The image is put on the left since we read that XLR8R has used columns for their article.from left to right, so the first thing we are drawn These are one of the codes and conventions to on the page is the image then the headline, which are vital for making a magazine look like then the quote then the sub-heading. In the a magazine and also no one wants to read an image we see 2 men with one cut halfway out in extreme wall of text. By breaking an article order to bring focus to the main artist of the into columns it makes the article seem smaller article. The artists are wearing very simple and and easier to read, which is definitely casual clothing since the article is about the appealing to a younger age group since they rising of this artist it tries to make Skream look won’t exactly be into reading so much and real and authentic by showing him in his would like to get the vital information straight comfortable stat. Also this is what artists like away. Also if you notice XLR8R hasn’t used pullthemselves and also the readers of the magazine quotes in their article but instead they have find as popular so readers may want to buy used sub-headings. Without the pull quote the clothes that they see these artists wearing. We have to remember that Dubstep is very energetic and wild yet Sub-headings are used to summarise what an article is page still looks like it came from a magazine futuristic and robotic which is why XLR8R used bright colours dull about and to give a little insight into what someone is because they’ve used columns but by using colours on their double page spread but then dulled these colours about read. The main subheading is deliberately sub-headings it can also make the page look down to make the page look futuristic this way they can create a calm placed between the headlines on the page to split quite simplistic yet sophisticated which is the and dreamy atmosphere. The colours used throughout the page are away ‘Skream’ from the rest of the headline theme that XLR8R was trying to convey across very light hearted and playful since the music these artists make is momentarily so we automatically associate the word to their readers. vibrant and playful and also since the audience of these artists are Skream with the artist pictured on the left. probably just as playful and vibrant.
