● I used a consistent colour theme on the front cover, as this made itlook professional but still colourful because I used a blue, purple colourfor my mast head and various cover lines, however it contrasted withthe use of pink, black and white which made the fonts stand out fromthe background which is of a neutral type of colour, as it is taken in anatural, outdoor environment.● Including a unique selling point was essential to thinking about whatis successful to actually attract the audience. My unique selling point isthat it is aimed at young girls which is extremely specific through theuse of the front cover model and house style.● The language used is important because that is what the audiencewill be reading and if it is not interpreted in the correct way then it willnot attract them so I used an informal tone/language for my magazine,and using a friendly, warm approach directly involves the reader sousing first person techniques is always a good way to interact with theaudience. Using ‘you’ directly involves the reader, instead of being too general.
