Media Magazine TOC feedback
• Good layout design
• Good pictures
• Good articles
• Number 22 is a little unclear
• The text is unclear and should be
a different orientation
TOC – Changes Made
• The main change in my TOC is the text
font and orientation. I have changed the
orientation opposite and have changed
the font from Myriad Pro to Perpetua.
• I have also slightly adjusted the number
22 to make it more readable.
NME Magazine Analysis
• The colour white is used for the text throughout
nearly the whole cover. This makes the
magazine far easier on the eye to see and read.
The NME logo also changes colour every issue to
adapt to the background colours.
• The magazine cover has a small feature bar on
the side of the page, which gives extra incentive
for people to buy the magazine.
• The picture of the ‘My Chemical Romance’
singer perfectly fits the page and obviously is
the first thing readers see.
NME Magazine 2 analysis
• The NME logo colour has once again been
changed to suit the overall scheme of the
magazine’s layout. This makes the cover
easier to read and therefore will attract
• The colour of the main headlines of text
are the same as the NME logo’s. This
highlights these main articles and makes
them stand out and more important for
the reader to see.
• Like the other article, the main picture of
Carl Barat is perfectly placed on the front
page of the magazine.
NME TOC Analysis
• The layout has many articles which all
have pictures and have some sort of
motto-headline with some information
below it. This definitely attracts readers as
it gives readers a teaser of what to expect
in this magazine.
• The TOC also has a features section of
what to expect from the rest of the
What is your favourite music genre?
As you can see from the pie chart, the
majority of votes were made to the
‘Alternative’ category, therefore I will
have to include this in my magazine.
Despite the ‘Other’ category having
the second-most votes, it is hard to
specify the type of music in this
category as all written down were very
different. I will therefore include some
other categories and will also include
R&B as this had some of the votes as
well. I will also include some Rock &
Roll related material in my magazine
as I have always wanted tom include
this in my magazine.
Rock & Roll
Out of these artists, pick your fave
As you can see from the pie chart ‘The
Beatles’ are clearly the most popular
artist out of the choices and they are
definitely my favourite out of the
choices, so I will definitely have The
Beatles in the magazine. The second
most popular artist in the list is Lady
Gaga so I will include her somewhere
in my magazine (there is always
something to write about her!) I will
also include artists such as Eminem
and artists from the favourite
categories of music genres.
Out of these music magazines, pick your
As you can see, there is one clear
winner in the votes and the favourite
music magazine is NME. I will try to
get inspiration from this magazine to
make my music magazine. My
favourite magazine is Rolling Stone, so
I will also try to get inspiration from
this magazine and incorporate ideas
into my music magazine.
What do you believe is the maximum price
this magazine should be?
As you can clearly see from the pie
chart, the £2.99 category is far more
popular than the rest and has received
half of the overall votes. There is now
more chance of me pricing my
magazine at £2.99 instead of the rest,
but with other a third of the votes is
£3.49, so I will have to think carefully
about what price to pick, but I will
probably pick £2.99.
What types of editorial pillars do you
I asked my participants to pick up-to
four of the categories and as you can
see there is little difference between
the top five categories ‘Features’,
‘Music Charts’, ‘Music Reviews’, ‘Sex’
and ‘Fashion’. Due to this, I will try to
include all these in my magazine to
make it as appealing to the public as
What do you think is an ideal name for my
As you can see from this pie chart
‘Lips’ and ‘Frisky!’ are both the most
popular magazine names, however
only 6 participants thought of a name
for my magazine, so this pie chart is
quite unreliable and indecisive.
What type of font do you prefer?
As you can see from the results of the
questionnaire, the 1st sample narrowly
beats the 2nd and 3rd samples with
most votes. I may use all three as I will
have to use at least 2 different fonts
so will have to take this into
consideration when making my music
