Lets start off by defining ‘social groups’… It is two or more people who interact with
one another sharing similar characters and interests.
I started by thinking about my target market and who I would aim my magazine at…
I then decided that the best thing to do was make a survey to see what music genres
where trending. Many people said pop/ chart music.
So I decided to base my music magazine on chart music artists such as Taylor Swift and
Rihanna. I knew a lot about this sort of music as well, so I thought it would be better to
do a music magazine based on pop and chart music.
How did you attract/address your
The headings I used for the cover of my magazine was
short and snappy. I tried to make them eye-catching
and interesting. From personal experience of reading
magazines, I tend to buy the magazines with the
quirky interesting lines that look like they will be
enjoyable to read. The colours I used are simple but
effective as they stand out but not too bright that you
it don’t look appealing.
My target market is teenage girls who like listening to,
or hearing about top pop/charts celebrities. So I had
to base my magazine around this in order to get my
target market to buy my magazine. I think my headers
do fulfil my target market as they include popular
celebrities and range between men and women.
The idea of my magazine was to make it so it was
based around music, but had gossips and teenage
fashion involved too. This allows more people to
become interested instead of it just being based only
on music which is out now.
I tried to use other magazine ideas to influence my
own for example, the position of the name of the
magazine and how the models head overlaps a little. I
tried to allow the clothing being worn to fit in with
the colour scheme of the magazine.
