7. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?

  1. 1. Nick Bates
  2. 2. Here you can see a massive difference between the masthead on my school magazine and the one on my music magazine. My school magazine masthead seems funky and fun, where as my music magazine masthead is more clearer, bolder and stylish, it is very similar to the Q magazine masthead. I believe the masthead I used on the previous magazine made it look cheap and less professional. I have learnt how to adapt mastheads around different styles of genre of music.
  3. 3. The style in which I present my magazine stories is very different. First off on my school magazine there is not many stories to attract the audience to red and is looking very empty. Where as on my music magazine it seems more packed with headlines and content. The text I used in my school magazine seems very cheap as its curvy and funky, whereas the text on my music magazine is very professional and bolder. Also some of the text on the previous magazine doesn’t stand out due to the background colour, whereas on the music magazine the text stands out more as it blends in well with you background colour.
  4. 4. When designing my school magazine I believed that the cover story just had to be the biggest text and placed anywhere on the stage, however I learned that it did not stand out very well. To ensure that my cover story was the best it could possibly be on my music magazine cover I experimented with different fonts, colours, sizes etc to get a wide range of styles, doing this was a lot of fun. The text I used in my music magazine cover is more complicated as the font sizes and colours are different. I feel as if ive improved on this area of the magazine massively.
  5. 5. The modelling in both magazines have some differences between them. In the school magazine I used a full body shot, where as in the music magazine in used a mid shot, I believe the mid shot has greater effect because you models face is more clear and stands out more to the audience. The background in the music magazine is more interesting and helps fit the mood of the magazine, whereas the school magazine background is very dull and boring. In the school magazine I believe that I used too much editing on the main picture as the clothes blend in too much with the background to much. I am very happy with the design on my music magazine front cover.
  6. 6. As you can see the difference between my 2 contents page are massive. The music magazine layout is much better and looks more professional with better use of colours, fonts and images. The school magazine contents page seems to be randomly placed and the writing blends in with the background colours so it is hard to read, where as the music magazine contents are more clear and easy to read. The background colour also looks more sensible than the school magazine as the school magazine looks very dark and boring.
  7. 7. I believe the us of putting all the pictures to one side and the content stories to another has improved my music magazine contents page a lot more. This shows that the magazine is more organised and easier to read. It also allowed the reader not to get lost in all the images being dotted all over the page. I believe I have learnt to make a contents page more stylish and organised.
  8. 8. I believe that the pictures I used in the music magazine work a lot better with the theme. The previous pictures have poor backgrounds and very poor editing applied to them. The images in my music magazine work very well with the genre of music and the target audience of indie scenesters. I have learnt how to layout images and ensure that they are not just randomly placed over the page to make sure it looks professional.
  9. 9. We did not create a double page spread in the preliminary task so I cant compare my music magazine to a previous one. However I have learnt how to make it effective . The use of bold text is simple, effective and works well with the rest of the magazine. The use of a quote in big bold writing has a massive effect as it persuades the reader to read the article as they are interested to know what the quote is about. The images applied on the double page spread are placed to made it seem as if it is busy. I believe that I have efficiently created a very effective double page spread that works very well with the rest of the magazine.
