What kind of media
might distribute your
Existing Media Institutions..
• IPC Media
During my research, I
looked over the following
Kerrang, NME and Q
NME was published and
distributed by IPC Media
Kerrang and Q were
published and distributed
• Multinational Media
• Founded in 1875
• Headquartered in Humbug
After looking back at my research and planning , I
have decided that the institution that I have chose
to distribute my magazine is Bauer. Kerrang have
been my main influence when making my music
magazine, as they have been my main existing
inspiration, therefore it would make sense to base
my media institution on Kerrang.
Bauer have a history with successful music
magazines, such as kerrang, Q and Mojo. All three
of these magazines are among the top selling
magazines in the UK and are all relevant to my
I think my music magazine would fit right in with
the conventions of Bauer’s existing style.
Above are some magazines which are existing products of Bauer’s distribution.
These magazines were all researched and taken into account when planning
and creating my own magazine. I particularly took Q’s powerful main images
and Kerrang’s layout and font as main inspiration. All these magazines are
highly successful, which would suggest that Bauer would be willing to publish
LOUD until it became as successful as the magazines above.
As well as publishing Q Magazine, Bauer has also created Q Radio. This is
useful information for me because it suggests that if they were to publish my
magazine, they may be able to branch further and perhaps make a LOUD
radio station or TV channel etc as well.
