Plan

  1. 1. The magazine has really morphed and changed as I've worked on it and s now totally unrecognisable from the first draft I attempted. This plan outlines some of the major changes FRONT COVER Splat!’s front cover follows the conventions of other magazines of the pop genre. The masthead is not in the centre of the page but is a central focus above the main image. This is slightly unconventional as most magazines have the masthead in the top left hand of the page so its easier to locate on a newsagent’s stand. The main sells are on either side of the photograph without masking it, which is a typical position for music magazines of this kind.I chose a house style of grey, turquoise and pink as these colours (apart from grey) are two of three in a complimentary triad of colours. Apart from the large main article and pull quote I kept the writing on the page to a minimum, making the main image the focus of the cover. The model’s pose helps to add to the immediate pull of the magazine which is aimed at a young, female audience much like the model. Early ideas First Draft

  4. 4. CONTENTS PAGE I tried to continue the house style through into the contents page, using the same grey for the background and echoing the pink and turquoise in the text and images. These pages focus mostly on the contents of the magazine, with only three small images to the side of the page and the central focus being on the title CONTENTS. The page is slightly unconventional as there are three photos, with small captions and isn’t dominated by a main image, instead the text is allowed to stand out more and be the main focus. I echoed the same lipstick mark brush on the contents page as I used to surround the flash on the front cover to help create continuity.

  7. 7. DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD The double page spread(DPS) is laid out in a similar style to many other music magazines with the main focus being on the photography used in the article. Instead of the same black and white images I’d used on the front cover, I used an image that was in colour and bleached some of the colour from it. Because I really liked the composition and appeal of that particular image and the difficulty that following this convention would cause around that image, I decided to use very little text on that page rather than follow the convention of having the article’s title above the image. The DPS uses a lot less colour than the contents and the front page, but is in keeping with the house style as the colours used were the original pink and turquoise used throughout the magazine. I did this so that the colour left in the main image would be intensified and more eye-catching. The article is in black text and contains several pull quotes to attract reader’s attention. I used a small copy of the masthead in the top left hand corner of the page as seen in many music magazines. I found that my article went over to a third page, as many article do when there is a wholly image-based page in the DPS and used a black and white image similar to the one used on my front page.
