Final presentation. Presentation Transcript

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

    That’s the address to my blog
