Final presentation.

  1. 1. Jakubgrochla<br />Presentation of the final products<br />
  2. 2. Outlining the task<br />To produce a front page, contents and double page spread of a new music magazine<br />All images and text must be original, produced by the students<br />
  3. 3. What is the purpose of a music magazine?<br />To attract particular audience that are part of the social group<br />To advertise products that appear in the magazine<br />The adverts are usually aimed and relevant to the audience that buy the magazine<br />Magazine get money from the big brands that want to advertise their product<br />
  4. 4. Front Cover Research<br />
  5. 5. Initial IDEAS<br />Wide range of audience<br />Both black and white race<br />Both males and females<br />Pop/Rock/Indie/Hip-Hop<br />Two musicians on the cover (Rapper and Rock Singer)<br />
  6. 6. Primary research<br />I felt like I needed more primary research<br />Went over to local shop to look for a magazine<br />My plan was to buy Rolling Stone magazine because it is related to my codes and conventions <br />
  7. 7. Changes Made to my idea<br />Aimed generally at Indie/Rock audience as well as pop or hip-hop.<br />Front cover shows a typical Indie style looking young men.<br />Attracts female attention<br />Both female and male audience that are into Rock/Indie/Pop music<br />Good use of colour, works good on the design<br />Smart use of white space, gives more holding power to the design<br />Distributed by COMAG Specialist<br />Price £3.50<br />
  8. 8. Planning out my front cover<br />Before creating my front cover I sketched out a quick design of how it will look like<br />I came up with the name ‘Cramp’ for my magazine<br />Title of the magazine on the top<br />Front cover image taking up most of the design's space, also placed behind the title<br />Ear piece used for advertisement or promotion<br />Sell lines on both sides of the page to fill up the empty space <br />Main article sell line placed on the bottom of the design<br />Bar code adds authenticity to the design<br />Medium close up photograph<br />
  9. 9. Front cover<br />
  10. 10. Software Used<br />I used Photoshop to edit the photograph and InDesign to add the title, sell lines, shapes etc.<br />I’ve taken the photographs with my classmate. On the example below is the actual photograph that I used for the cover. I got rid of the imperfections.<br />I had couple of difficulties with InDesign because this software was new to me.<br />Luckily we had a teacher in our school who helped me out <br />The main issues were things like adding gradients, creating shapes.<br />On the example you can my original picture used<br />
  11. 11. Improvements<br />Everyone looked at each others work and gave feedback<br />I gained mostly positive feedback <br />Things that I could improve were to add a banner, date, price of the magazine, more authentic sell lines that will link with what’s on the contents page<br />Make the text more visible, especially the main article title<br />
  12. 12. Contents page research<br />
  13. 13. Contents page<br />
