I have also used abarcode which follows the forms of a typicalmagazine, however a slight development may beplacing it at the top of the page rather than thebottom. I did this because I felt it worked with thelayout of my page.The title of the feature article dominates the pageand uses a different font to the rest of the text onthe page, this uses the convention of a typical Indiemusic magazine. As well as this, a simple colourscheme including black has been used, alsofollowing the conventions of an Indie magazine.On a typical front cover the cover lines are foundon left and/or right of page, however on mine Ihave put them in a bar across thebottom, challenging the forms of magazine layout.
