Plain white background used to make the photo(even the faded parts) and the text stand out on the page as the text for the article is black which contrasts against the white background.<br />The photo has been edited so that the main artist in the band stands out on the page and the other three have been faded into the back ground.<br />I like how the title for the article is in grey and gold which relates back to the clothing the band are wearing in the photo. This give the page a theme which runs throughout the double page.<br />Most of the text is black on white although quotes of the article have been picked out and have been highlighted. These parts are white on black.<br />Some of the text is harder to read against the darker parts of the picture although the fade effect that had been used does help against this.<br />Questions for the article are in bolder text which make it clear to which parts of the article are questions and which are the answers<br />
Although the picture is only on one side of the spread the title for the article goes over the double page which creates a connection between the two pages.<br />Linked in with the contents page one of the headings on the contents page for the sections in the magazine was ‘RADAR’ this is clearly listed at the top of the page on this spread. (see the NME contents page I analysed)<br />I like how there is a running theme on the page of blue, black and white.<br />Quotes for the article have been highlighted in blue<br />The blue for the need to know box on this page contrasts against the picture. If this text was just to be placed on the picture without the blue It would be harder to read as some parts of the picture are quite dark. This would mean a lighter colour would be needed which would break the colour scheme on the page<br />I like the idea of how the page is in three sections; the main picture for the article, the main text for the article and the banner at the side with more information related to the article.<br />
I like the fact that the picture is used as he background for the page and the photo had been taken so that the main part of the photo is on one page. The photo has been taken so that the photo can make up the back ground but the text for the article is not obstructing anything. <br />Like the last one the header for the page is ‘RADAR’ which relates back to the NME contents page. (see the one I analysed earlier)<br />The text used for the heading of the article is clever because the letters shape together.<br />Blues have been used in the photo which keeps the theme constant. Although red have also been used which contrasts against the blue to make the people in the photo stand out.<br />Quotes highlighted in blue makes them stand out from the rest of the article.<br />The fact box on the page has also been highlighted in blue to make it stand out on the page.<br />
I think this spread looks boring. The black and white theme I think works but from my perspective doesn't appeal to me as it seems quite minimalist.<br />Although this is not a music related spread I chose to do this because the other spreads I have chosen to analyse didn't have a lot of drawback where as this one in my opinion did so I chose to highlight them on this one.<br />I think that too much space has been wasted. I think something should have been put here like a picture related to the article of a quote from the article instead of it left blank.<br />Name for the magazine has been printed at the bottom of each page.<br />The two pages have no connection. The picture has just been cut off. Although It works with this magazine I think it would have been more appropriate to let the picture flow onto the next page.<br />
