All of the sections for each article into the double spread use a pull quote to catch the readers attention. This gives a taster and insight into each article/feature. However, it doesn’t seem to tell the readers a lot of information of what the article is about and it doesn’t show a variety of different types of articles. But thisThis title is reminiscent of a news paper headline because could leave the readers wanting more.of how it uses block capitals and the serif text. The seriffont is used throughout the contents page apart from a fewsections which have sans serif text. This highlights theimportance of this text as the capitals draw the readersattention.These are the editorial pillars which are thetopics and the subject of other articles. Theseeditorial pillars, in NME, are separated fromthe other article previews and its quite smalland situated in the bottom left of the page.This highlights the importance of the otherfeatures and shows the The subscription section enables the reader a chance to get a subscription right to their door. Usually, several issues are shown in this section to show the reader what they able to get by subscribing. This box colour seems to clash with the rest of the table of contents but this bright colour stands out from the rest so it is far likely that it will grab the readers attention.
The layout of thiscontents is verysymmetrical, thecontents is split up intodifferent sections bythe use of the thinboxes. Although, thereis one part where isdoesn’t completelyline up and after thispoint most of thesections don’t seem toline up either. itdoesn’t really seem tohave a set colourscheme, apart from thebasic black and whitebut the other colours,such as the brightgreen, make it seem asthough there isnt a setcolour scheme. Thepage numbers beingon different corners ofthe pictures and thedifferent size of thepictures make it lessordered. Layout
I really like the layout of this particular table of contents. I like thevariation of photos and artists featured in the pictures. I like thesubscription box at the bottom right corner, it stands out becausethe colours clash with the rest of the contents. I like the titlebecause its not just repeating the title of the magazine.The things that I would change would be the amount on the page Ifeel the page is too busy with 8 pictures and there doesn’t seem tobe enough room for the rest of the contents (the ‘plus’ section).Also, I may have added the editors note instead of a picture andtext.What Inspires me.
This title stands out from the rest of the contents page because of its bright colour and bold lettering.The serif text makes it stand out from the rest of the double page spread. Having the word ‘contents’above the table of contents isnt very conventional for a magazine to have but this works because toalso has the date and the title of the magazine underneath. This picture is one of three on the double page spread. This two shot depicts two musicians with the actual article being about only one of them. The caption on the top right tells the reader who is in the picture and what page the article is on. Again, the captions are very conventional for a table of contents, usually just the page number that is on the pictures. This section is separated from the rest of the editorial pillars and the rest of the contents. It is This magazine uses a mix separated and highlighted of news and music to by the thick black box keep it readers updated. surrounding it and the Again this break the light colour behind it. conventions of a music these particular articles magazine but this will are highlighted because help to reach a wider they are the articles that audience.

This layout is quitesimplistic yetsophisticated. Thesimple colours of thetitles and each articledon’t take too muchattention away fromthe content of thepictures. Becausethere are only threepictures the contentshas the right amountof space and itdoesn’t look toobusy. The articles onthe front cover arehighlighted by a lightyellow box. Themagazine addressesworld issues and‘national affairs’ andis not wholly basedon music, but thenational affairs areput ahead of themusic in this table ofcontents. Layout
I like the colour scheme on the table of contents because the attention isfocused on both the pictures and the colourful text. I particularly like thefont as its serif and not design writing as that would draw the readersattention away from the photos. I like the fact that the magazine doesn’tjust address music but world affairs as well. The fact it uses three picturesdoesnt make the page busy at all.The only thing that I dislike is that use of the colour yellow to highlightthe articles featured on the front page. The main colour scheme is redblack and white and I feel that the yellow clashes too much which thatscheme. What inspires me
