Louis evaluation

  1. 1. evaluation
  2. 2. Question 1:In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? • My masthead is very original. I have used a very bold font so it stands out and is clear to read. I have used the colours black and grey because they are dark and violent and that is what most rap is affiliated with. My front cover picture is simple because I wanted it to be similar to one of Kendrick Lamar I saw. The facial expressions are very vacant which makes it look serious. I have centred the picture because this draws attention and focus to who will be in the magazine. My cover is reasonably similar to the vibe front cover using similar colours and a similar layout.
  3. 3. Question 2:How does your media product represent particular social groups? • My magazine targets people who listen to rap music. the three rap artists I have in my picture are all well known. Straight away this makes the reader know what my magazine will be about. The picture I have used is unintentional which makes it seem professional that my magazine can get away without using a scheduled photo. This draws the reader as they know it is legit and promotes a laidback atmosphere.
  4. 4. Question 3:What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why? • I think my publisher of choice would be Bauer media group. The reason I would choose them is because their current magazines are similar to my magazine and they are very popular in the public eye. They already have many customers which would be a good starting point for my magazine. It would be good if they did publish my magazine because it would also benefit them giving them a wider range of customers.
  5. 5. Question 4:Who would be the audience for your media product? • The target audience for my magazine is from ages 16- 22 for male and female customers but aimed more towards male customers. This is for people who are into rap and R&B music.
  6. 6. Question 5:How did you attract/address your audience?I have put the magazine logo in the corner so it is clear and easy to see. A big clear picture of who the article is about. This draws all the attention to them and makes them stand out. Very small but clear and easy to read font. The reader will not feel pushed away from trying to read it. Bold title so it stands out and draws the readers attention.
  7. 7. Question 6:What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product? • When I first started using Photoshop I really struggled with the tools and found it complicated. At the start my work is not as good as it could have been due to this. The way I have laid out my first pieces of work are poor and so are the colour schemes. Once I got use to it my music magazine is much better. I have learnt how to use the tools and layers efficiently and this has helped me edit my photos so they look natural.
  8. 8. Question 7:Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? • Looking back at my school magazine, the quality is very poor and it looks amateurish. In some ways it is similar to real magazines like barcodes, price etc. but apart from that it is dreadful compared to my music magazine. The colour scheme is very poor in my school magazine, whereas in my music magazine I have kept it the same throughout making it look professional. Since being able to use Photoshop efficiently my work quality has increased dramatically.
