  1. 1. Unit 01 A02 - describe the structure of media products A03 - Explore and describe how meaning is created ʻStructure and meaning of coversʼ A good cover should • Be recognizable from issue to issue • Emotionally irascible • Magnetic and curiosity arousing • Intellectually stimulating • Efficient, fast, easy to scan • Logical Full bleed •The picture appears bigger as it continues beyond the confines of the cover •Gives the importance/space to the main image and ʻsellʼ Framed •separates the mag from more common full bleed •Concentrates the focus on the central image •consistent structure, this helps the brand
  2. 2. Multiple hit •more cover hits appears to be broader audience •The importance is connected to the size of the cover •Logo and cover hits dominate the design •The content and brand is more important than of the content featured in one particular issue The LOGO cover •Cluttered and multi-hit cover •little sense of content •hierarchy- suggest enthusiasm and passion The compromise
  3. 3. The picture appears bigger as it continues beyond the confines of the cover. Gives the importance/space to the main image and ʻsellʼ overlaid superman over the masthead, then also cover the cover-hit with his fist. Meant to create an emotional connections as there they are attractive people, then there stance makes them look powerful. The ʻline time for changeʼ is for people for people who did not like superman before Masthead dose not change from issue to issue Barcode goes in the bottom left, to be out of the way, the publishers name also goes here The main cover-hit has a typeface of its own, this draws your attention to it then also looks 3D/stands Exclusive makes the reader feel like a part of a club whoʼs knows this information Multiple hit cover also with this bit at the top for the people who already know they donʼt like superman this shows
  4. 4. Meant to create an emotional connections as there they are attractive people, then there stance makes them look powerful. The ʻline time for changeʼ is for people for people who did not like superman before Main title in the white spot, this is the same issue to issue This shows that its a movie review magazine, but then also the saying truth builds trust. They have put the barcode the in there logo this is strange as itʼs meant to be the ugly but looks good how they have done it The image of superman is really well designed, you can tell its him from the hair, the neck and the cape on the shoulders. The way its top lit you see no eyes so this makes him look mysterious, but then also powerful, and gives you the sense that he is looking at you The type face is important as it its simple and the only other piece of text on the image All of the cover that appears blue is foil- wrapped (shinny) this makes it look really nice and gives the effect its expensive; which it is for a magazine, it cost £6 and is a monthly issue They are not selling man of steel but using it as a selling point, compared to the totalfilm covert that tries to through so much information about the film that you just want to buy it because of that, but this cover grabs your attention from the design
