Plan B are a recent artist and are
quite popular. The quote at the top
says “The music that changed my
life” so it makes you want to see
how it changed his life and why.
Also it includes popular artists
which are shown down the side of
the page. The artist is on a plain
background which makes him
stand out more.
I don’t read this magazine often
but it is quite a thick magazine so
it must have a lot of information so
it would have been worth buying
and it seems to be aimed towards
a young age group.
•The artists featured are usually popular or new, some of these
magazines have featured artists such as Jessie J, Laura Marling,
Paul Weller, Arctic Monkeys, Cee Lo Green and Dizzee Rascal so
there is a range of different artists so it can attract all different
kinds of audiences.
•Q are their own company they have their own magazine, website
and radio station.
•The current editor is Paul Rees who is the former editor of the UK
edition of Kerrang magazine
•The magazine costs £3.99 but you can access some of the
One advert which is on the back of the
magazine, is advertising the Coldplay album. It
also says it can be purchased on iTunes
encouraging people to pre-order the album. The
background is bright colours that merge together
and also there are parts of graffiti which in ways
can attract a younger audience as some younger
people like to be creative and the graffiti can
attract them to it.
The website advertises t-
shirts and hoodies trying
to sell them but with all
different artists on the
front so there is
something for everyone
Q has 170 pages, there are about 20 advertisements in the magazine and the last few
pages are advertising music concerts.
The magazine has a few car advertisements which suit the magazine on some pages
as it is aimed towards a young audience so they would have the latest car. The rest of
the magazine and website advertise artist merchandise, albums, and concerts/tours so
it fits in perfectly with the music magazine and website.
The website includes, Home page, News, Q25, Q radio, Features, Track of the Day, Q
50, Gallery, Q live, Q covers, Ticket shop, T-shirts shop, and newsletter sign up
What I like best about the magazine:
The range of artists included in the magazines, and it
is not aimed at a specific audience and they advertise
popular artists so it is always interesting and has a
topic for everyone
What I would change about it?
The information on the front, there is not much advertised on the
front cover, it only has one topic and doesn’t help attract an
audience by not including what other topics are inside.
The magazine is produced once a month and is £3.99
Q are an independent company, they produce a magazine, and
they have a website and radio station
Q target a young audience. You can tell this as they advertise concerts and
albums. Also they advertise new cars as a lot of young people want the
latest things. Also the younger audience prefer younger and more recent
The front cover
The front cover stands out well to the audience. The red
and white logo in the top left hand corner. They’ve used
a pale grey background so the logo really stands out.
The singer from Plan B is on the front. The photo of
him is quite dark around the edges, which make him
stand out even more on the background. The title is
written at the bottom and the font is an autograph style.
The contents Page
The contents pages is spread out. There images dotted
all over the page which relate to different pages.
However the pages numbers are not in order and they
are spread about the page, even though this is different
to other magazines, it is not very clear and quite
