  1. 1. Evaluation<br />Terri-Leigh Jennings<br />
  2. 2. In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products? <br />My magazine uses aspects from current magazinesthese things are:<br />∙I have a mast head in my magazine which almost all magazine have anyway.<br />∙I have a logo paired with the masthead. <br />∙I have created and used a contents page which almost all magazine have. <br />
  3. 3. ∙Other aspects of my magazine that are similar to existing magazines is the fact that I have a house style. The colours and fonts remain the same throughout my magazine, making it more professional.<br />∙The fact that I have used photos in my magazine makes it similar to other magazines.<br />∙<br />
  4. 4. The logo is a set of headphones which relates to the musical theme of my magazine. <br />I have used the same colour scheme of, black red and white, throughout the magazine. <br />I got this idea from Kerrang and NME who use the same yellow and black colour scheme.<br /> <br />
  5. 5. How does your media product represent particular social groups?<br />The people in my magazine are portrayed as independent and well behaved. The main interview in my magazine is a 17year old girl which makes her age fit in with what my magazine is aimed to be at.<br /> <br />
  6. 6. Naomi Robinson<br />Was the artist in my magazine’s main interview and she came across as a down to earth, well behaved girl. <br />She would be a good role model for young people. <br />
  7. 7. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?<br />If I was to look for a publisher for my magazine then the first place I would start looking is the publishers of magazine similar to mine, such as Kerrang and NME<br />Kerrang publisher: Bauer Consumer Media <br />NME publisher: Faith Hill<br />
  8. 8. Online distributers<br />My magazine will be solely a online magazine so I will have to research into online publishers. <br />Virtual Paper is a digital publishing specialist who turns your <br />‘paper collateral’ into online web pages. <br />A lot of online magazines such as ‘The Buzz’ do not <br />have online distributors and manage the magazine by <br />themselves with the public participating in articles. <br />My magazine would probably follow along these lines. <br />
  9. 9. Who would be the audience for your media product? <br />I have tried to aim my magazine at people between the ages of 14 and 20years old. <br />This is because when I did research people aged between 14-20 were the majority of people who filled out my questionnaire.<br />Also, I am in this age range <br />so therefore I can relate <br />with my audience better. <br />
  10. 10. How did you attract your audience?<br />To attract my audience of my magazine I used colours that both male and female can relate too. Also, the masthead ‘Off the record’ is very relatable because it’s simple and straight to the point. <br />I also used images that stood out and fit the colour scheme of the magazine. This would attract the audiences eye and interested them enough to read. <br />
  11. 11. How did you address your audience?<br />I used simpler language then if I was aiming at a older audience making my magazine easy to read and understand.<br />I also spoke to the audience as if they were a normal, down to earth person, so the magazine does not come across snobby or stuck up. <br />
  12. 12. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?<br />I learnt many new techniques things making this magazine. For example before I could start making or planning my magazine now, I had to research many other magazines and make a mock magazine for a completely different subject just to get the hang of making a magazine. I made a magazine about environmental problems. <br />
  13. 13. I also learnt how to use a blogging site. I learnt how to edit a blog to make the entry look how I wanted and to present my work to look the best. <br />
  14. 14. I also had to analyse existing magazines’ contents pages, front covers and double page spreads as these were the pages I had to create. Analysing these existing magazines gave me a good insight into what makes a good magazine such as: Kerrang, NME and Q magazine. <br />
  15. 15. Programs used<br />I used new programs that I haven’t used before with this project for example Fireworks. <br />I had to edit photos to remove faults and imperfections to ensure that my magazine would be <br />of the best quality.<br />I also used publisher which I <br />haven't used in great depth before. <br />I learnt how to create my magazine <br />in this program and make it look <br />good. <br />
  16. 16. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? <br />∙I have leant many new techniques creating this product. <br />∙ I have learnt how to create a magazine.<br />∙ I have learnt a great deal of information on what makes a magazine successful. <br />∙ I have learnt aspects of things in a magazine and what they are called. <br />
  17. 17. ∙ I have learnt how to edit photos, and this will be a very useful task to take on into the future.<br />∙I have learnt how to create a product on Microsoft publisher which is also a very useful skill.<br />∙I have got to term with using an online blog and using HTML codes and imageshack. <br />∙I have also learnt how to address the public and get useful feedback from them.<br />∙I have learnt how to plan a project and then follow it through and meet my targets.<br />
