How my magazine appeals to the
By Robert Munden
Fonts: The font I have used for my front cover is
sans serif which appeals greatly to the target
audience as they’re younger and therefore it makes it
more conventional of the genre , I found out through
Overall my fonts used are sans serif this is all
conventional with the rock genre because the sans
serif gives the feeling of rock, They are all bold and
stand out which makes it clear and draws the reader
in to the magazine.
Fonts: For the fonts on the contents page I have used
on this page are nearly the same as the ones on the
front cover, This is done to create recognisability within
the magazine as I did with the colours.
I have also used the fonts on the content s page bold
as it stands out again, By making the headings larger
and bolder so they stand out, This makes it more eyecatching, and then they’d concentrate on the actual
content and read my magazine.
Fonts: the fonts I have used on the double
page spread are less varied because I
wanted to keep the body of the copy
almost the same, The fonts used are all
sans serif which is conventional of the
genre, This draws the attention to the
main image of the magazine because the
headline and stand first catch the readers
eye, And then this also is followed by the
body copy catching the eye, And to keep
appealing to my target audience I
included the pull quotes.
Contents: The content I have used is conventional to
rock as it’s a rock magazine, I’ve included information
about what is inside the rest of the magazine.
I’ve included a pull quote on the cover to attract
attention with the audience, this is because it leaves
them wondering about the full story as it says ‘ You left
us struggling ‘ therefore it draws the reader into the
magazine. I’ve also included featured bands along the
bottom of the magazine in a strip this is to interest them
about their favourite bands and that they are featured
inside, The coverlines also draw the reader into turning
the pages over.
S overall the content of the front cover does the job
needed of enticing the audience into reading on.
Content: The contents of this page is conventional as
it includes typical elements of a contents page, The
large image and additional eye catching features, so
this appeals to the target audience. The image used
on this page to attract the readers attention, as it’s
conventional, this will draw the reader into reading
The main features that appeal to the target audience
are the editors report as they like to see what they
contain in their magazine and the editors opinion. The
subscription offer also attracts a lot of attention as it’s
a special offer and therefore they will be saving
money on the magazine.
The contents of my double page spread appeals to the target audience as the features
I have included such as the one large image, main body copy, stand first, pull quote
and caption make it appealing as they are conventional for a rock genre double page
spread. They find it appealing because the large image draws the in the reader, the
pull quote catches their attention and makes them want to read the article, And then
the information used on the double page spread is broken up by questions which
makes it get less boring so they therefore stay interested.
The article is appealing because the language used is informal and includes slang
words, which is appealing because it is regular language for the target audience,
which they would use regularly in everyday life in their social groups.
Mode of address
Mode of address: The mode of address on my front
cover is aggressive, but it also puts across the tone of
the magazine which is serious and meaningful.
The fonts and colours all put across the tone of
aggressive as the does the image with the facial
expressions of him being serious.
This therefore appeals to the target audience because
of the conventional being used.
Mode of address
The mode of address on content page is the same as
in the front cover, so I thought this would appeal
more, The main image used on the contents page
expresses seriousness again, and the facial
expressions show the other tones that are
conventional of the genre, for example depressive as
well as serious, the fonts and colours used also
connote aggression as they are bold, large and stand
out for the audience.
Mode of address
The mode of address on the double page spread, The tone set by the main
image is the same as the main image of the front cover, Serious and aggressive,
They also show facial expressions which expresses the seriousness and
aggression on their faces, For example aggression is good in the main image as
also the fonts and colours used all connote aggression as they are bold, large
and stand out for the target audience, Therefore making this appealing to the
mode of address.
