Evaluation - 1In what ways does your media product use, develop or challengeforms and conventions of real media products?
My magazine follows the typical conventions of a music magazine as they are very successful and appeal to a large audience already. To go against the conventions would be different and could be a possible risk. I added the name of the magazine in the top left corner as it’s in the same place on the majority of magazines so it’s easy for the consumer to identify it.I included a barcodeas it’s a conventionof every media Both images haveproduct. the artist staring directly at the camera, I chose to do this so that they stand out more and the magazine feels more personal to the consumer.I chose to changethe font sizes of themain stories so thatthey stood out morethan the sub stories. ‘EMMA’ is the same as the example shown and I chose to do this as it instantly informs the consumer of the artist featured and the bold capitals allows the text to stand out.
The name of my magazine is very similar to the example shown and I chose to do this because the simplicity of the ‘Q’ magazine was effective. Simple colours also allow other colours and images on the page to stand out more.My magazine is shown on the left and the example whichinfluenced my magazine is shown on the right, I chose thisexample as I liked the different fonts which it used. The seriffont shows class through the quote and the san-serif fontappears to be more relaxed and laid back. Although bothexamples have a strong impact.
