I choose the bright pink colour for the background of the articlebecause with it being a pop music magazine I wanted to use a varietyof colours. I also think that it stands out and would look really good inan actual pop magazine and it’s also part of my colour scheme whichfits in well.
I have put in the article text over both the pages of the double pagespread. I have also added a heading which is just saying who theinterviews are with. On the Quark express I have used a drop capitalto stand out and have used different colours for the interviewquestions and then the answers that the fans have gave me.
Here I have added the image of Katy Perry which I took at her latesttour ‘California Dreams’. I have cropped the photo on Photoshop to cutout the sides of the actual image where it was just stage lightninghowever it was really dark to include in the article and it fits nicely.
Next I added the image of Rihanna which I also took at her latest tour‘LOUD’. I thought it was a good idea to use an image like Katy Perry’swhere both singers are singing into the microphone with the other hand inthe air. I also cropped the backing dancers out of this photo so that we canjust see Rihanna. It works well because the artists look as though they arestanding towards each other.
Finally, I added the main title of the article and made it stand out byusing a white colour to match the white coloured interview questionsto the fans. I think this also works well because it really stands out ifyou was to flick through the magazine.
I have further edited the article so that it fits better so I haveextended the stand first so that it all fits on one line and alsolinks the two photos together which I think works really well. Ihave also added the magazine title and page number in bothbottom corners of the double page spread.
