1: In what ways does your media product
use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of
                  media products?
           Similarities on the two front covers


                             Masthead

                             Cover lines

                          Dateline

                        Dominant image and
                        plain background


                        Sans serif font
                           Consistent
                           colours

                           Bar code
In what ways does your media product use, develop
    or challenge forms and conventions of media
                     products?
            Differences on the two front covers

                      ‘Red’ has a selling line
                      whereas mine
                      doesn’t and only
                      features the issue
                      number and date.
                      Also, my selling lines
                      are very much to do
                      with college and
                      things that are
                      relevant to students.
                    General use of more
                    colder colours to attract
                    attention and create a
                    different theme to it.

                    Use of a medium close up
                    of a female college
                    student. The softer effects
                    and the half smile helps to
                    create a friendly mood
                    which is important for this
                    type of college magazine.
In what ways does your media product
 use, develop or challenge forms and
    conventions of media products?
      Similarities on the two contents pages

                 Initial of magazine
                 masthead
                     Main title
                     and
                     dateline at
                     top of
                     page

                    Highlight front
                    cover features

                    Lay out of
                    features
                    according to
                    category and
                    importance
In what ways does your media product use, develop
    or challenge forms and conventions of media
                     products?
          Differences on the two contents pages


                     My contents page uses
                     more than one
                     image, and aren’t quite
                     up to the standard of the
                     professional photograph
                     Teen Vogue has used.
                     Their photo looks much
                     more sophisticated and
                     creates a elegant, model
                     type image.

                     Mine includes an editors
                     message as it’s the first
                     edition so it provides a
                     clearer insight into the
                     magazine and a clear
                     introduction into what it’s
                     about.
In what ways does your media product
         use, develop or challenge forms and
            conventions of media products?




                          Using Adobe
Using Adobe Indesign to   Photoshop to
create my contents page                       Using a digital
                          create my front
                                              camera to take
                          cover and
                                              photographs for
                          manipulate images
                                              the magazine
                          and add various
                          features for it
Using the camera I was able to ensure my pictures were of the
highest quality for this situation. I used MCU (Medium Close
Ups) for this front cover image to take the image of a college
student and made sure they looked natural, happy and smiling.
I used Adobe Photoshop to manipulate my image and make it
look more suited for the magazine cover.
I did this by adjusting the image so that I had the main focal
point covering the entire page.
And as I went on, I started to add more text and features to
enable it to look more like and resemble a magazine cover.

              Adding
              more text
              using the
              text tool


                 Arranging
                 the image
                 of the page
                 using the
                 select tool
I used Adobe Indesign to create my contents page. This
                            included placing my images onto the document and
                            adjusting them into the order I wanted and where I wanted.
                            I did this by rotating them and resizing them accordingly.
                            I used different squared shapes to separate the different
                            bits of information so that it was spread out over the page
                            and that there were no blank spaces. This was also effective
                            in that the information was easier to digest and not all
                            clumped together.
                            Throughout this, I was able to think more about the layout
                            of my contents page and helped me understand how
                            important it is.
                            I also made sure I used similar colours to that on my front
                            cover.



I inserted different coloured text boxes
using the rectangle tool and adjusted them
and changed their shape to suit how I
wanted it to be
