Front Cover Production Work

  1. 1. Front Cover Production Work
  2. 2. Above is the image that will be the base of my frontcover. The background of the image is purple because this was one of the colours my target audience identified as one of their favourites.
  3. 3. When adding the masthead, I first inserted it using thetext tool on the left side of the page. I then changed the font and added a drop shadow effect to make it stand out.
  4. 4. I then added the positioning statement, price and issueinformation. Again, I used the text tool to do this. As the magazine is about rock music, I made the positioning statement fit in with this.
  5. 5. After this, using my sketch of my front cover I added the coverlines. The majority of these are band namesidentified by my target audience, used to appeal to the widest possible audience.
  6. 6. Next, I added sublines explaining what every article was about. I add this text the same way I added all of the other text on the front cover, using the text tool.
  7. 7. The main coverline was added, this anchors the image. It is the second biggest text on the page.
  8. 8. Then, the subline for the main coverline was addeddescribing what the article would ultimately be about.
  9. 9. I added a ‘plus bar’ to the bottom of the page. This willhold more band names that were again identified by my target audience to appeal to a wider audience.
  10. 10. I used my audience research to help decide on the bands that I would include in my ‘plus bar’.
  11. 11. Once the rest of the magazine cover was completed, allthat was left to so was add a barcode. I added mine to the bottom, right corner. This is a common position for barcodes on magazines.
