Again I used the same font for “contents” as I used for my

that both pages are from the same magazine.

My product was aimed at mainly teenagers and the age range of 14-25.
This is because I believe that they are like to be the main consumerism of my
magazine. My product hasn’t got dense editorial content and I know that this
will appeal to the younger consumerism. Young people who enjoy their
music, many different styles and approaches. For those who want to find out
more about new sounds coming out in the industry.

audience target audience
I used quite a limited editorial content as that is what I believe
that my target audience will want to have. I tried to make my
media product dominated by pictures as I think that the main

This will be more appealing to my target audience.
•In the article the language used
is quite laid back and informal.
•It is used as a conversational
tone to appeal to my target
•There is no colloquial language
used either, as this does not
exclude any readers.
