Title of Magazine
The title of this magazine
is NME. This is the stone
roses special for the 20th
anniversary of what NME
say is „the greatest debut

audience for NME is music

Masthead & Selling Line
The logo is the name of the magazine, „NME‟.
This stands for New Musical Express. The
selling point line of this particular magazine is
“The Stone Roses. 20th anniversary of the
greatest debut album ever.
The appearance is appealing to the target
audience because the picture of The Stone
Roses is the unique selling point, and they
genre of music that the audience usually listen

To tell the audience that the magazine isn‟t
just all about The Stone Roses, they use the
names of the other artist involved, such as;

Cover Lines & Main Sells
The biggest caption on this
magazine is to promote the 20th
anniversary of The Stone Roses
All the other captions are small.
This is to tell the audience that
there are other things included

The colour of the cover lines are
yellow, this is a colour that
stands out and catches your

colours on the back ground.
Bold is used on the cover lines
and on the masthead. This is to

I have decided to compare this ELLE
magazine with the NME magazine
because the whole look, idea, target
audience and concept is different.
Firstly the image is just of one
person. There is just one focus point.
The masthead is still in bold but is in
white, as is all the text.
In this cover the colour scheme is
white and blue, whereas on the NME
cover there is no colour scheme.
Masthead and Title
The title is ELLE.
“Elle is a worldwide lifestyle magazine of French
origin that focuses on fashion, beauty, health, and
entertainment. Elle is also the world's best selling
fashion magazine. It was founded by Pierre Lazareff
and his wife Hélène Gordon in 1945. The title, in
French, means "she" or "her".”
The title is bold but not overpowering. The
font is classy. Like the people that they are
aiming this magazine at.
The main image of this photo is a close up
photo of Katy Perry. Katy is portraying a
classy, powerful look. This is because „ELLE‟
is a classy, powerful magazine, and that is the
type of people they are aiming their magazine
Cover Lines & Main Sells.
The cover lines tell the reader what stories are
going to be inside the magazine. This is to
attract the readers into buying the magazine.
Readers are more likely to buy the magazine
if they have an idea of what is going to be
inside before they buy it.
