When asked what they thought of my magazine, my target audience stated: ‘I like the vibrant colours used for the front cover, the layout is also very busy without overcrowding the page making it look daunting. I like the faded out background of the box around the secondary image as this is very different to any other magazine I have seen before.’ ‘The colours of the magazine are very appealing to the eye, the cover is very vibrant with a key colour scheme running throughout. The images used are also appealing and would entice me to buy the magazine as the people used are of key interest in society today.’
‘The contents page for the magazine has a very bright vibrant background, which makes it stand out and look appealing. The scratched effect gives it an edgy feel which also makes it look more interesting and different. I like the slanted text boxes as this challenges the common conventions of straight aligned text.’ ‘I like how the colour scheme of the contents reflects the colour scheme on the front cover. The images and headlines used also make me want to read on as they sound appealing and of great interest.’
‘The double page spread looks very professional. Once again the colour scheme has been kept throughout, showing a key sense on brand identity. I like the black and white effect on the image used also, as this gives a different aspect to the other photos used in the magazine.’ ‘I really like the whole colour scheme on the magazine, the brand identity makes it look very professional, and makes it more enticing to read. The highlighted headings for each question break the text up to make it seem more appealing to read also.’
