Colour Scheme:The colour scheme of my front cover suits the targetaudience as the use of red/black throughout all threeof my magazine pages are alternative and modern,which represents youth. This is good as I aimed for mymagazine to be targeted at young males.Masterhead:The masterhead ‘Streetmag’ fits my target audience asthe word street is often associated with working classpeople who are interested in hip-hop (for examplepeople often refer to hip-hop artists breaking awayfrom the streets and making a better life forthemselves). This then is relevant and attracts mytarget audience as I aimed my magazine at youngworking class males interested in hip-hop.Key image:The key image is important in attracting my targetaudience as the subject looks angry into the camera asfolds his arms. As well as this the clothing of the subjectof the subject and how he is wearing them (forexample wearing the hood over his cap) represents atypical hip-hop artist as hip-hop artists are oftenperceived as being arrogant and and times evenaggressive. This will attracts my target audience aspeople who are interested in hip-hop culture will bedrawn in to the fact that the subject is realistic to thegenre.
Font StyleThe style of the font within my contents page is sans serif.This is an informal style of font, which suits the targetaudience as I aimed the magazine at young people and amore modern font would most likely be more attractive tothem.Key Image CaptionThe key image caption is important when thinking aboutmy target audience as the fact that Dolla is ‘rebellious asever’ implies that he has been known to be deviant andcontroversial in the past. This attracts the target audienceas it is an accurate representation of a typical hip-hopartist, which is key as it means that people who areinterested in hip-hop will see it as a realistic and genuinemagazine, which is important when attracting people whoare passionate about the genre.Features/newsThe features/news on my contents page are also importantwhen focusing on attracting my target audience as the useof language is quite informal and easy to read. This isimportant as I aimed my magazine at teenagers and youngadults, who perhaps will appreciate language that is easierto understand. As well as this, the subjects that arepresented in my features are also tailored to a youngeraudience as the fact that I talk about headphones andmusic festivals would usually be things thatteenagers/young adults would appeal to.
I used a pull out quote to attract my target audience as the pull out quote says ‘One ofhip-hop’s realest albums of the past decade’. This will attract the target audience asthe fact that the album is being promoted as being one of the ‘realest’ creates the ideathat the music is of a good quality, which will attract fans of hip-hop towards mymagazine. As well as this, the continuity with the colour scheme again is informal dueto the vibrant colours. This will be better suited to a younger target audience, which isimportant as I aimed my magazine at teenagers and young males.
