  4. 4. Q<br />Masthead: The masthead of Q is short and bold and is always placed in the left third of the front cover. This makes it more recognizable and memorable to the reader. The colours used (red and white) are simple, but again recognizable.<br />Main image: This image is clearly linked to the main article as it overlaps other images on the page. The image also connects with the readers as the artist (Bruce) makes eye contact with the camera. This attracts peoples attention. <br />Anchorage text: The text that accompanies this image attracts potential readers. In the image, Bruce is shown relaxed and off-stage, the anchorage text explains ‘onstage, offstage on board his private jet’ this makes the reader want to find out about the interview and what he is really like offstage. The anchorage text is in a similar font to the rest of the text on the page with a bark background and white font. The contrasting colors attract the views attention to the text.<br />Flash: Using colors that follow the color scheme, however the white background with the red text is not used anywhere else on the front cover meaning it stands out more than other parts.<br />Cover lines: These are either side of the main image, explaining the other articles in the magazine that are not as important as the main article or bands that can be found within the mag. The colors used tie into the color scheme (red, black and white) which match the masthead.<br />

The anchorage text is in a font to the rest of the text on the page with a light background but a incandescent yellow font. The contrasting colors attract the views attention to the text.<br />Flash: Using colors that follow the color scheme the flash really attracts the viewers attention as the text is within strange shapes or slightly at and angle, which makes it stand out.<br />Cover lines: These are at the bottom of the main image, explaining the bands that can be found within the magazine, the cover line uses colors tied into the color scheme (blue, black and white).<br />
