Features page

  1. 1. Features Page By Gloria Lai
  2. 2. What genres of music are represented?
  3. 3. <ul><li>In this features page of my music </li></ul><ul><li>magazine, it presents a newly signed </li></ul><ul><li>Acoustic musician. She represents love </li></ul><ul><li>songs as well as Acoustic Indie. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Are there House Colours shown on the page?
  5. 5. <ul><li>Unfortunately no. This is I took priority of the </li></ul><ul><li>theme for the featured artist so that the </li></ul><ul><li>whole page would look better. I did another </li></ul><ul><li>version of my features page to experiment </li></ul><ul><li>with what it would have looked like if it </li></ul><ul><li>house colours were used instead of the </li></ul><ul><li>black and white vintage style. </li></ul>
  6. 7. What are the style and layout features?
  7. 8. The use of pull quotes is used three times, one large one next to the image, another one in between the two text columns and one behind the text The artist’s name was used as the heading for the feature so that people can see clearly who it is Subheading comes under the heading to show response to usual informative magazine layouts My folio included the page number, magazine name, magazine section and featuring who/what The text was organised by two thick columns making it legible for readers to read as I think 3 columns is more difficult The background is a sleek and smooth greyscale texture, matching the model’s original backdrop The text has paragraphs so that it would fit in the interview-style text rather of a Q&A form
  8. 9. What is the language style/Mode of address?
  9. 10. <ul><li>In my interview text, I used a casual </li></ul><ul><li>approach using conversational speech with </li></ul><ul><li>informal speech. It was a reporter to </li></ul><ul><li>musician conversation rather than a Q&A </li></ul><ul><li>so there were use of first person narrative. I </li></ul><ul><li>thought this kind of language style would </li></ul><ul><li>appeal to my target audience more than a </li></ul><ul><li>typical Q&A style </li></ul>
  10. 11. Typeface
  11. 12. <ul><li>The main visual fonts are sans-serif </li></ul><ul><li>because they are striking and bold so they </li></ul><ul><li>attract attention better. However, I used a </li></ul><ul><li>serif font for the heading, the musician’s </li></ul><ul><li>name because it fits in with her theme and </li></ul><ul><li>contrasts between the sans-serif already </li></ul><ul><li>placed there. </li></ul>
  12. 13. Photography Style
  13. 14. <ul><li>The photography shot used was of the </li></ul><ul><li>musician behind a white screen. She was </li></ul><ul><li>posed looking down to the right so that she </li></ul><ul><li>looks like she is directing the reader’s eye </li></ul><ul><li>view to the text. There is no specific </li></ul><ul><li>background to this as I thought the clean cut </li></ul><ul><li>simplicity style would fit more for the </li></ul><ul><li>purpose. </li></ul>
