The colours used on the cover are black, white and yellow these colours
strand out and will attract the reader’s eye. Also to give the title
KERRANG! More of a rock look the font looks like it has been smashed.
The Photo is also in front on the title this is because the designers are
comfortable enough to hide it, know that the readers will know the
magazine anyway. At the button of the page there is more information
about other articles. The lead article is bold and yellow this will stand out
and grab the reader’s attention. In the bottom left hand corner has a pull
quote from the Korn article “You want to eat my brains”? This makes the
reader want to find out more about the article.
This contents page is from the same magazine as the front page. They
have kept the colour scheme the same, Yellow, black and white, this way
it looks like it’s supposed to be together. They have a flash in the top
right hand corner linked with the article on Reading & Leeds festival.
Each sub article is spaced out evenly; this makes each article stand out
clearly and doesn’t interfere with others. Also there is a ‘By line’ of the
Deputy Editor in the bottom left corner.
This double page spread is an article on Bring me the horizons trip to
Scotland, this article has a picture of the band on both pages, there all
dressed in black and grey, this gives a hard metal look. Also the pull
quote across the pages “It was quite until we got here” relates to them
being loud, which mirrors the idea of KERRANGS slogan ‘Live Life
Loud’ On the right hand side there is a stream pictures of the band while
they where making the album, this gives the reader an insight into what it
was like while they were working on there album.
