Kerrang 1 White masthead on a dark background to make it stand out more. The masthead is a Sans Serif font but isn’t simple as the actual text has lines going through it. Most of the mentioned articles are on the important left third of the magazine. This will allow the reader to see easily whether their favourite band features on the magazine. Doesn’t have a slogo. This could mean that the makers are so confident in their brand that they feel the space would be better used on something like the main image. The magazine uses stand out colours like Pink, White and Yellow throughout the front cover. Pull quote which shows controversy, readers are generally more interested if there’s stuff about conflict in the magazine.
Kerrang 2 Is covering the masthead with the main image of the front cover which shows confidence in the reader knowing the brand. It does the opposite of the previous cover having black writing on a white background, despite being different it still stands out like the previous one. The freebie offer is on the important left third and is taking up a quarter of the page so that the offer is unmissable to the reader. The main image is made to look as if the band are having fun, this could suggest that the music is more upbeat than maybe the typical Kerrang front cover artist.
Kerrang 3 Two of the important cover lines have been put on the right hand side, this will prohibit potential Blink 182 and You Me At Six fans from seeing that their favourite is in the magazine when looking in the shop. While the poster offer is not stated as being free it has also been put on the right hand side and this is something that I feel is criminal by Kerrang The front cover and main image clash but the text blends in with the image. Main image has a picture of a man holding his hand on his heart. This could suggest that the interview he’s gave for the magazine has all come from the heart.
