Mood Boards For this mood board I used images of live performance and studio shots to get a feel for rock music. The various mastheads and fonts I have found have helped to give me ideas for the magazine name and fonts.
Mood Boards These images are from the magazine ‘1am’ I found on issuu.com. I like the carefree, natural poses, the fun attitude and clothing and the lighting makes it feel airy and playful.
Mastheads I designed these mastheads using dafont.com to help me with ideas for my magazine’s name. With these I also used a stroke tool to bring them out. Eventually decided on the ‘Red Cherry’ title and font.
Photo Shoot This front cover of ‘Mixmag’ has really inspired me for the photo shoot I want to do for my front cover and double-page spread. My photo shoot will be studio shot. It will be very feminine with emphasis on make-up and clothing. I want the main photo to be the centre point for my front cover like this cover. All the text comes second to the image. I like the contrast of the black background with bright yellow and pink font because it makes the dark image not too serious.
This is my pre-production sketch for my music magazine. Using my mood boards I have decided to on a light-hearted, rock/alternative magazine for a female audience.
