This is my old flat plan however
after creating this style of poster I
found that it wasn’t very good and
didn’t seem to attract an audience
as it certainly wasn’t enticing me
and so decided to change the
I have decided to use a graphics image as I feel that using a graphics
image will entice a younger audience and I plan on enticing both old and
young people for my product and so creating a graphical I think will
appeal to both. I would like to use something like The Guardian as they
use posters which use graphic images (text) that allow you to know
more about a newspaper and The Guardian have used it to tell their
audiences that they don’t shout about their articles because if you shout
about everything when you have something to shout about nobody will
take any notice because you shout about everything. I want to use this
style however I don’t want to talk about shouting I want to write about
my product being ‘your positive paper’.
Similar to The Guardian I plan to use a mixture of colours for the main
image however I want to use a more relaxing colour for the masthead as
I plan on using a blue colour for the colour palette and I know that this
colour can be used effectively in a newspaper product is because The
Mirror use it in their colour scheme. The reason why I have chosen for
blue is because it is a relaxing colour associated with health, healing,
tranquility, understanding and softness and this is something that
represents the goodness in society and that is what I want my product
to be about happiness.
As this is a poster there is not usually a lot of text because as it is a
poster it is something people see whilst passing and so it needs to be
eye catching enough for them to stop and look at but if thy don’t have
time to do this it needs to have a bold message so that people will
remember and want to read about. As this is the start of the product I
felt that including stories would be promoting the articles rather than
promoting the product and so for the time being I plan to promote the
product in a similar way.
Layout and font
For the font I plan on using Times new roman as this is the font typically
used for newspapers and I would like to use something conventional for
