  1. 1. Evaluation By Emily Godding
  2. 2. Conventions of a music magazine Masthead Strap line Cover lines Names of bands Cover image Captioned image of something in article Barcode Date and email address
  3. 3. <ul><li>My magazine fits the visual conventions of a magazine, as shown on the previous slide. </li></ul><ul><li>However, it breaks the conventions because it is a magazine for new/unsigned acts, </li></ul><ul><li>making the magazine original. </li></ul><ul><li>My other pages also fit the conventions of a magazine, visually and the contents of it. </li></ul><ul><li>I have included an extra page introducing my double page spread, this is not breaking </li></ul><ul><li>conventions, but it is not often used. </li></ul>Conventions of a music magazine Continued
  4. 4. <ul><li>My magazine is aimed at people aged between 16 and 20. </li></ul><ul><li>All of the images portray bands and people of similar age, which </li></ul><ul><li>attracts that audience. </li></ul><ul><li>It publicises quite a few genre’s of music: indie, acoustic, folk, </li></ul><ul><li>alternative, rock, electro, and drum and bass. This encourages a wider </li></ul><ul><li>audience. </li></ul><ul><li>It includes adverts for fashion, gigs, festivals, music, food and alcohol, </li></ul><ul><li>which are all part of teenage life. </li></ul><ul><li>The bright colours and bold busy pages attract young people because </li></ul><ul><li>it appears informal and exciting. </li></ul>Audience
  5. 5. <ul><li>I have used chatty, informal language that young people are used to and can relate to. </li></ul><ul><li>I tried to take and include photographs that were fun and good to look at, also </li></ul><ul><li>including typical teenage fashions and people, I have made them all brightly coloured to </li></ul><ul><li>add to the interest. I have tried to include lots of photographs in relation to the amount </li></ul><ul><li>of text because people said they’d prefer more pictures to text, or an equal balance. </li></ul><ul><li>The audience feedback has proven that all of the thing I took into account have worked </li></ul><ul><li>because they all said it was attractive to them and most said they would subscribe. </li></ul><ul><li>I have really tried to make my front cover interesting and attractive to young people </li></ul><ul><li>because 70% of people buy a magazine by seeing it’s cover. I have tried to achieve this </li></ul><ul><li>with the layout, colours and cover lines. </li></ul>Audience Continued Chatty Lexis Bright photos
  6. 6. <ul><li>My magazine would probably be independently </li></ul><ul><li>distributed because it’s such a different </li></ul><ul><li>magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>However, if it was to have a big named </li></ul><ul><li>publisher it would Bauer, because they publish </li></ul><ul><li>magazines such as Q and Kerrang! </li></ul>Distribution
  7. 7. <ul><li>During this project I have used… </li></ul><ul><li>Gimp Editing Software </li></ul><ul><li>Paint </li></ul><ul><li>Microsoft Office Publisher </li></ul><ul><li>Microsoft Word </li></ul><ul><li>Cameras for photos and video </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs </li></ul><ul><li>Polls </li></ul><ul><li>I have learnt more about taking photographs effectively and how </li></ul><ul><li>positioning and editing can affect a photo. I have also learnt the </li></ul><ul><li>basics of how to use the program Gimp, which has helped a lot </li></ul><ul><li>when editing photos and titles. This has been effective as response </li></ul><ul><li>has been positive about the colours and photographs used. </li></ul>Technology used
  8. 8. <ul><li>Since the prelim task of making a student magazine, I think my </li></ul><ul><li>designing and editing skills have improved, also my understanding of </li></ul><ul><li>house style and conventions of a magazine or articles has improved </li></ul><ul><li>massively. I have also learnt more about what people look for in a </li></ul><ul><li>magazine, and how it’s affected by current economic climates. </li></ul><ul><li>However for some the price of my magazine was quite high, although it </li></ul><ul><li>is cheaper than Q and The Big Cheese and it is and independent </li></ul><ul><li>magazine. </li></ul><ul><li>Overall, I am really pleased with my magazine, the audience feedback </li></ul><ul><li>was really positive and I’m pleased that my original idea has proven a </li></ul><ul><li>good one. </li></ul>What have I learnt?
