HOW DO YOU SHOW YOUR
I don’t really have genre for my magazine because it is a magazine that looks at all genres.
But this one issue of my magazine would have some articles on pop music because of the
way my artist is dressed on the front cover of my magazine makes them look like a pop artist
because they pop artist dress quite colourful and quirky which is the sort of genre that I am
trying to get across to my reader. With my magazine focusing on a different genre every
month it will mean that my magazine will sell to a lot more people than a magazine that only
focus's on a certain genre and it is the same genre every month because will be liked and
enjoyed my more people because it could be my audiences favourite genre that my
magazine will be focusing on that month.
In the Vibe magazine it shows that the women has been
objectified and they have made the male artist look like
they are in charge and that they are really important. It
also makes the women look like they quite less important
than the men but on my magazine I haven’t done that
because on my magazine I have made my artist look
normal and so it looks like she hasn’t been objectified.
But on the Kerrang magazine it shows men and women
together and they look like they can be quite aggressive
but they have made it so men and women are seen the
same and so that men aren’t seen more higher up than
women, they have done it so men and women look the
HOW DO YOU SHOW YOUR
I think my magazine shows artists how they really are. on my front cover my
artist is in bright colours this shows she isn’t a dull person and is quite bright
and happy and bright colours can also mean that she has quite a bubbly
personality. The pose she is pulling can also show that she can be quite an
innocent person and also it shows she will be quite a fun and imaginative
artist. As she has got something in her hair it can show that she cares about
her appearance and what she looks like and she always likes something in her
hair even if it isn’t big.
I have shown my artist on my front cover as normal
because most artists are shown as if they have got lots of
money and are really rich. But I have shown my artist as
normal because she hasn’t got lots of money she is just
an ordinary person like everyone else, she lives a normal
life because she isn’t a really famous artist like some
artists out there.
