WATCH THE THRONE A Presentation By Khalid Ismail
Magazine Proposal The name of my music magazine is called “WATCH THE THRONE” but I will only place the initials “WTT” on the front cover because it is too long to fit in the front cover. The reason why I chose WTT as the name of my music magazine because in the music industry its all about who is the best and most established artists but no matter whos the best theres always someone better that can take that artists place in the music industry. That’s why you really have to watch your place in the throne (The top of the music industry) if you’re the best, and my magazine will be all about these new artists (new comers from YouTube) that have the possibility to take this fictional throne. My chose genres are hip hop/grime and rap music. Hip hop is separated into many different styles and grime is one of them. The reason why I chose grime is because it was created in East London (Bow) in the early 2000’s, and I can relate to this because I grew up In this area and I know some people who actually make their own grime music. I also wanted to have some rapper on my artists to make my music magazine have a more street look to it and that’s exactly what will attract my intended audience.
Magazine Proposal My feature article witch will be on a DPS will be about a very popular Asian rapper who was a new comer but now he is very established due to the advance in social networking sites such as Facebook and YouTube. This rapper is an Asian guy who will be will be pretending to be a fictional rapper called Dj Ibzzy (because his name is Ibrahim and I my nickname for him is Ibzzy). He will be wearing a snapback, a colourful hoodie with a very large chain on and he will also jeans and bright blue trainers. These pictures will be taken at the photography studio. Another guy I know who will be pretending to be a rapper will be doing location pictures with me be the football pitch and he will be playing the role of a footballer who isn’t getting much money and popularity from football so he quit his role as a striker to be a rapper. He will be wearing a hoodie and a snapback and very bright white trainers. What makes my music magazine different is the regulars that I am going to have. For example I will have a regular article called “Twitter Responses” and every time a new article comes out I will interview an artist and go through their fans tweets for them to answer. I will also have an article called “YouTubes Top Raps” and this will include new comer’s raps on YouTube that have some potential and it will have their channels name on this article for the readers to listen to later on
Magazine Proposal Master head has to be big and bold while looking as professional as possible. Like NME’s on and Billboards. The master head will be a very dark red colour to match with my colour scheme which is Dark Red, Black and White/Grey. The lettering has to be very clear and professional (like the font “Arial”) and that means no shadow effects of other tacky stuff like that, but I will make sure that the font is boring and dull.
Magazine Proposal My magazine publisher will be IPC because IPC is an international publishing corporation that publish music magazines like NME, Mouse Breaker, Nuts and Uncut. IPC is a very established and well know company because it was founded a long time ago, and also because of the large amount of magazines, books and newspapers they publish. The screen shot on the top right corner, shows all the sports and leisure magazines IPC publish and people that are interested in sports and leisure are a part of my target audience. If I were to have IPC as a publisher I could get lots of readers from around the world because IPC is a well known international publishing company with lots of potential readers for WTT.
Magazine ProposalMy Target Audience My target audience is mostly men at the average age of 24 years old. This is because I wouldn’t really expect females to be reading a very street-like magazine with a hip hop genre and this is because their isn’t that many females that are working in this genre. (The reason why I chose 24 years old men as my target audience is because most men that age are most likely to be employed and will be able to afford buying my magazine all the time. NME average aged readers are 24years old too). The percentage of male to females that will be reading my music magazine will be 70%Male and 30%Female. NME has a 69% Male and 29% female fan base. (That’s the main reason why I chose a mostly male audience for WTT). My target audience has to be in the ABC1 class so that they have enough economic stability to be able to carry on purchasing my magazine. The men that will be reading my magazines will be in to sports and fitness because my magazine will include offers and prizes that will interest them every month. 70% 30%
