  • 1. Analysis of magazine front covers Cover 1.NME Sept 2009 Dizzee Rascal Edition
  • 2. FRONT COVER ANALYSIS THE MASTHEAD Big and bold to catch the readers eye. ‘NME’ sounds like ‘Enemy’ and gives people an idea that the magazine is going to be full of attitude THE HEADER… Much like the footer this tells people what to expect when reading the magazine THE SELL LINES/COVER LINES Tells the reader what other things to expect in the magazine THE MAIN IMAGE …. Normally the biggest thing on the page, first thing the audience sees so has to be something that will attract the target audience. In this case, Dizzee Rascal is crouched but it is still a long shot, his expression is showing he’s happy and having a good time THE MAIN COVER LINE Tells the audience the main article in the magazine, Is bigger than all the other text on the page to stand out more Barcode date/issue/price Gives the magazine company important information, including how many they have sold THE FOOTER Tells the reader what other bands are in the magazine, so they know if they will be interested in reading it. Also gives a more in depth clue of what the magazine writes about USE OF A PULL QUOTE This gives the reader an idea of what is going to be included in the main article, gives them a sense of if they are going to be interested BACKGROUND Background is bright and colourful, tries to catch the readers eye and give them an idea of what to expect when reading the magazine USE OF A FLASHER- (offering something extra to T.A) Makes it stand out more, catches the readers eye by being a different colour to the main background RULE OF THIRDS/THE LEFT THIRD Includes the pull quote and adds additional information
  • 3. TARGET AUDIENCE OF THIS MAGAZINE METHODS USED TO ATTRACT THIS TARGET AUDIENCE ARE: Target audience Profile (possibly add image) The target audience for this magazine would be, people who have an interest in this sort of music (indie music) Musical interests/favourite artists etc, People who like Indie music Gender: Male Age: 17-30 year olds Social class (how much money do they have available?)

  • 5. MORE DETAILED RESEARCH INTO NME MAGAZINE http://www.nme.com/magazine
  • 6. FRONT COVER ANALYSIS 2 THE MASTHEAD Big and bold to catch the readers eye. ‘Kerrang!’ Sounds like the sound of an electric guitar being strummed, gives the audience an idea of what sort of music they will be reading about. USE OF A FLASHER- (offering something extra to T.A) Makes it stand out more, catches the readers eye by being a different colour to the main background BACKGROUND Background is a plain white background, makes the main image stand out more and seem more important, makes it catch the readers eye more. USE OF A PULL QUOTE This gives the reader an idea of what is going to be included in the main article, gives them a sense of if they are going to be interested RULE OF THIRDS/THE LEFT THIRD Kerrang doesn’t pay attention to the rule of thirds perfectly, it puts both Gerards eyes and the title ‘My chemical romance’ on the lines, but because it is a rock magazine it is more rebellious and doesn’t have to conform to the rule of thirds THE FOOTER Tells the reader what other bands are in the magazine, so they know if they will be interested in reading it. Also gives a more in depth clue of what the magazine writes about Barcode date/issue/price Gives the magazine company important information, including how many they have sold THE MAIN COVER LINE Tells the audience the main article in the magazine, Is bigger than all the other text on the page to stand out more THE MAIN IMAGE …. Normally the biggest thing on the page, first thing the audience sees so has to be something that will attract the target audience. In this case, Gerard Way has a slight smile on his face, this looks friendly and attracts the reader, but also he has his hands as guns adding an ironic threat THE SELL LINES/COVER LINES Tells the reader what other things to expect in the magazine

  • 8. FRONT COVER ANALYSIS 2 THE MASTHEAD Big and bold to catch the readers eye. ‘Kerrang!’ Sounds like the sound of an electric guitar being strummed, gives the audience an idea of what sort of music they will be reading about. USE OF A FLASHER- (offering something extra to T.A) Makes it stand out more, catches the readers eye by being a different colour to the main background BACKGROUND Background is a plain white background, makes the main image stand out more and seem more important, makes it catch the readers eye more. RULE OF THIRDS/THE LEFT THIRD Kerrang doesn’t pay attention to the rule of thirds. Although it has put all the people on the cover level and their eyes are a third of the way down the page, and the main title is also a third below this, but because it is a rock magazine it is more rebellious and doesn’t have to conform to the rule of thirds THE FOOTER Tells the reader what other bands are in the magazine, so they know if they will be interested in reading it. Also gives a more in depth clue of what the magazine writes about Barcode date/issue/price Gives the magazine company important information, including how many they have sold THE MAIN COVER LINE Tells the audience the main article in the magazine, Is bigger than all the other text on the page to stand out more THE MAIN IMAGE …. Normally the biggest thing on the page, first thing the audience sees so has to be something that will attract the target audience. In this case, it is The band ‘Enter Shikari’ Looking aggressive because it is a rock magazine, you would expect them to have this aggressive look THE SELL LINES/COVER LINES Tells the reader what other things to expect in the magazine
