Who would be the audience for your media product?
- Write detailed audience profile. Include images. (This
could be done in the form of a video.)
Similar magazines to mode are magazines such
as NME, NME is a rock magazine set in a
sophisticated style.The people that read
magazines such as NME and Keraang are
middle class and into rock.These people usually
wear dark clothing and/or red, therefore in my
magazine I have used the colour scheme dark
grey/black and red.
The type of clothing and the expressions my
models wear reflects the type of person I
think would read my magazine, for example
the facial expressions my models are using
reflect the target audience of my magazine.
Also the type of clothing my models are
wearing reflect the type of people that are
into my magazine.
I designed my double page to be slightly
like the magazine Q, this is because of the
colours used. I slightly changed from a
rock magazine on this page as I wanted to
also attract other audiences, however I
kept the same house styles with colours
and fonts. I kept the clothing plain so then
the readers could focus on the models
expression.The mise en scene used in
these images is the colours and the
models placing within the frame as this is
important for the reading to keep it easier
to read the magazine.
The front cover reflects the quality of the
magazine on the inside, this is why it is important
to keep the front cover to a high standard.The
colours need to be kept in the same house style
throughout the colours I have used target the
audience as they are dark “rock” colours therefore
attracting the target audience.
I used this chart throughout my
magazine, this shows what the colours
mean. For example as my magazine is a
rock magazine aimed at teenagers the
obvious choices are black, red (for danger
and energy) and gold.This is because the
type of people that read these magazines
tend to be creative, for example stand out
from the crowd with tattoos dark
hair, eyeliner ect.
I think this is really important in my
magazine as it will attract certain types of
people to different colours
