  4. 4. AS Production Piece Remember to research thoroughly the type of music magazine you are going to create. The main way to show creativity is to not just copy from a successful magazine but to actually use it to help you create something original which follows the format of a magazine. Getting Started All magazines have a brand identity. This is really important to create a sense of cohesion throughout the magazine. • Fonts – you should choose a main headline font, a body font and secondary headline fonts. • Your front page will have many fonts on it – they are there to distinguish between articles and to grab the readers’ attention. • Remember – often less is more when it comes to choice of fonts – a page that’s too busy will often detract from the articles. • Be consistent in your choices of colour – have a batch which clearly define the different pieces of your magazine. • Text and colour – remember if you are placing text on a background, whether it’s a picture or a block of colour – can you read it? WOBs (white on black) are very popular to make a secondary story or an information panel stand out – say a paragraph on a star’s hits – but make sure your body text is clear. • Watch out for colours – never put red on green, or yellow on blue – it looks sickly and is terrible to read! Stand back from your page – can you read it from a distance? • Headlines can be as big as you like in a magazine – but more that 150pt and it will take over the page. • Body text in articles should be no more than 9pt – any bigger and it will look simplistic. • Use standalone paragraphs under headlines – great to introduce your interview and these can be much bigger than the body text. • Don’t be afraid to leave white space and space around photographs. • Body text in columns should be a serif font such as Times New Roman, fonts with curly bits on are easier to read in columns in 8pt. If you have smaller pieces of text, sans serif fonts are okay to use. You can break up text with crossheads to break up the column, or use a pull-out quote.
