How does your media product representparticular social groups?
What is representation?• Representation refers to the construction in any medium, of aspects of reality such as people, places and objects. It involves not only how identities are represented, but also how they are constructed.
Colour Scheme• My colour scheme of reds, purples and blacks all blend together to give off a sense off rock, appealing to the metal fans in the world. The fact the colours on my pages are overall fairly dark show that my magazine sways more towards men, but will also attract the girls if they are really into the music being presented.
Images• All of my images shown, especially the front cover and DPS show a person/people who fit the genre of metal. Therefore the group that I represented were the metal bands themselves, as well as fans of this genre.
Background• The background of my images are overall not entirely clear, which creates a sense of distortion. This is a common characteristic of rock/metal music which is the genre I am trying to create. This background also helps to enhance the character/characters shown, and the stage lights will help appeal to the people who like their music loud.
