There are many conventions of media products, magazines like were the mast head is, how the content page is laid out, what colours are used etc, I took ideas from how the Kerrang magazine is laid out but I wanted my magazine to go against how Kerrang magazine (which was my main inspiration because its my music magazine genre) and other magazine of this genre like NME (rock) I wanted it to not be the same as those magazines but take certain conventions like layout from them. Also I have made a specific house style for my magazine.

I also learnt new techniques on Indesign and photoshop that I didn’t know before which helped me out also. I have also learnt how to make my work look professional and what appeals to the target audience and what doesn’t
