The contents page of any magazine is there to inform the reader
on what articles will be featured inside.
There are a few images across the page to show the reader that
the issue is versatile and interesting. This is because, although
there is one main image, showing other images makes people
aware that the magazine has a lot to offer and is worth buying.
The contents page has to be able to clearly navigate the reader
through the magazine without causing confusion. This is done by
having page numbers somewhere on the page, possibly in
conjunction with images that will help the reader decide whether
this is the magazine they would be interested in.
The contents page is laid out into 3 or 4
columns which are displayed to the side
of the main image. They act as a frame of
the image which makes it more visually
stimulating for the reader. The text should
never overlap or cover the image.
The layout should be clear and organised
so the readers eyes can easily follow the
writing. If the layout is sloppy then it
could make the reader confused and
irritated which will result in them putting
down the magazine and not buying it.
On the contents page there is usually one main image
which relates to the main, featuring article. This image is
usually the biggest on the page and relates to the main
image featuring on the front cover. 50% of the page should
be images.
The text is anchored around the main image to
connote it’s importance and therefore the structure
relies on the place of the image.
The other images used on the
contents page are smaller and also
anchored around the text. They relate
to the page that they are featured on.
For example on the left, an image is
shown and on the bottom left it says
‘162 (page number) NICK CAVE’.
This gives extra information about
the magazine.
The masthead of the page is
usually just ‘CONTENTS’.
This is because a one word
masthead is easy to
understand and clearly states
the purpose of the page.
The masthead font type and
colour should be bold and
contrast to the background as
to draw the readers attention
to the main focus of the page.
Sublines are usually featured in size 11 font,
they are used in order to advise the reader a
little more on what the articles are about.
The contents page is categorised in to
columns/sections to portray the organised
layout so it is easier for the reader to
navigate around the page.
As shown on the left there are a few
categories such as ‘NEWS’, ‘REVIEWS’,
‘BAND INDEX’AND ‘FEATURES’. These
are set out like this as to give the page a
sense of order and structure.
The colour scheme on the contents page is the same as on the front
cover to present fluency in order for the magazine to look more
professional.
If the colour scheme is more fluent, it will seem more appealing to the
audience which will encourage them to purchase the magazine – which
is the purpose of it.
The contents page includes
important conventions as displayed
on the left. They all play a part in
making the page look interesting
and fun whilst at the same time
promoting what they need to and
also looking professional and
sophisticated.
The contents page I have shown
looks very neat and clear, but also
has a colour scheme which makes it
seem as if it’s edgy and rock themed
still.
This is what is crucially needed on a
contents page in order for the
audience to be intrigued but also
informed at the same time.
