Question 1 - In what ways does your product use develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?

  1. 1. Question 1: In what ways does your product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
  2. 2. Front Cover I tried to use diagonal lines within my cover I used a two secondary images also as they are very common on teen pop magazines I included different shapes as they added excitement and something different. These are seen on pop magazines a lot Skylines are not always seen on pop magazines but I thought I’d include one as a way of advertising posters I have put my Masthead on the top centre. I made two of the V’s Pink as the idea is used on the ‘We Love Pop’ magazine. I’ve made a slogan also as this is a convention of teen pop magazines My main image is female who are commonly used as the model for the image. She is also on the right column of the thirds which follows the convention ‘Rule Of Thirds’ Barcode, issue number and price My Main Coverline is placed on the left side of the page. This challenges the normal conventions of a pop magazine. However, I think for the image I used the coverline looked better on the left. I developed the idea of lines. I used them on the cover a lot as I thought it was a recurring theme in teen pop magazine examples I have used lots of coverlines as they fill up a lot of teen pop magazine’s covers. I made sure any images I used were put next to coverlines as this was a featured convention on teen pop magazines I changed the colour of text to highlight important words. I saw this used on pop magazines all the time and I thought it would be important to include it.
  3. 3. Contents Page I saw that ‘Top Of the Pops’ magazine used an image of their front cover I used the idea of diagonal lines a lot here, I wanted it to look exciting like teen pop magazines Examples I’ve looked at used a lot of overlapping so I incorporated this onto my contents page I wrote headings for each section – I got this from teen pop mag examples. They used them to narrow the contents down I used lots different colours and different sized text when talking of the featured articles – this is a convention used in teen pop magazines to make the page look more dynamic. I have used lots of images on this page as it was a regular thing I found on content pages for pop magazines I also included an image ‘banner’. I noted the use of these on front covers and content pages a lot. I thought it would be an interesting feature to use in my design as it makes the page look busier. I saw one magazine incorporate shapes into their contents page. So I used love hearts dotted around. I have used the colour scheme of pink, white, yellow and blue. This is because it linked with my front cover, and also were commonly used colours of teen pop magazine’s contents pages.
  4. 4. Double Page Spread To make my page more interesting I made the speech marks larger, pink and translucent. Many pop magazines used quotations as the title of the page – it draws the reader in A lot of the double page spreads were interviews. So I followed this trend. I used different colours for questions and answers. I made sure I used Drop Cap as this is a common feature of pop magazine articles Not a lot of pop magazine articles use Pull Quotes from research. However, I decided it would be another feature to make a reader interested in the article. I put my main image on the left hand side of the double page spread. This is because the image worked better this side. However in teen pop magazines the main image is usually conventionally on the right. I challenged another convention by using a caption. They are not always used on double page spreads, but I felt my article needed one. The ‘We Love Pop’ magazine used a asymmetrical shape behind the artist’s name. I did the same thing expect made the shape translucent pink like the speech marks.
