Media Product Presentation

  1. 1. Media Product Presentation
  2. 2. My Magazine:
  3. 3. Forms and Conventions. • I chose to do a Hip Hop magazine as i thought that by doing a genre of music that I myself liked it would be more useful because i could use my own personal knowledge as well as research to make my product typical of conventions but still unique. • I feel my magazine does follow the conventions of similar magazines of the same genre.
  4. 4. Hip Hop Conventions: • Hip hop is a genre of music coming from the Bronx in America, coming from the African American. • And when typing in “hip hop magazine” to Google images I found..
  5. 5. Main image:
  6. 6. Models:
  7. 7. Other Typical Conventions: • Colour : Although colour in magazines changes from issue to issue, colour schemes are used and prove very affective. Colours used in Hip- hop magazines are often either very pure colours, like whites and pale beiges or bold darker colours showing real presence.
  8. 8. • I chose to use a Red and Black theme for both my front cover and article, a popular scheme in hip hop magazines. Red = I chose red because it catches the eye, red is also associated with energy, power strength and determination. Which is what a lot of hip hop artist want to represent in their image. Black = Black denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious colour.
  9. 9. Font & Language: • I also think my use of font is typical of similar style magazines, using san serif for the main head. . And language in my article uses common slag like “innit” “yeah” and “ight” which is slag hip hop artists do use, and being spontaneous speech therefore makes the article more realistic.
  10. 10. How Does Your Product Represent social Groups: • By using colloquium and slang in the text in my article, also the content, about living in a deprived area of London, which a lot of young people can relate too. • Also referring to popular artists like N-dubs, Dizzee Rascal, who are all reasonably young and grown up in under privileged areas, and therefore giving people inspiration.
  11. 11. Market? As my magazine is totally based on Hip Hop, its market is therefore quite narrow. Hip Hop has a hard time in the media often being tagged to things like gun crime, drugs etc. I feel that larger specialist magazine newsagents will distribute my magazine, as well as HMV and urban clothes stores. And perhaps advertised on channels like MTV base and channel U.
  12. 12. Target Audience: • Males & Females. • Aged Between 14-26 (although topic’s are gritty, their real life.) • Lower class – Upper to class • From all areas. • Revolved around Urban lifestyle & culture. • All ethnic minorities. Everybody who likes Hip Hop Music, fashion or art.
  13. 13. Attracting Audience: • Image. • Colour. • Layout. • Articles & content. • Mentioning well known artists. • Freebee. • Catchy Slogan.
  14. 14. What iv Learnt: • Trial and error on photo shop. Trying out different tools seeing what they do. • How effective a clear layout can be. • How valuable research is. • Photography. • Styling.
