How I used/challenged conventions in my ancillary texts

  1. 1. Conforming, challenging and developing conventions for my ancillary texts
  2. 2. Planning and Research • In my initial planning and research, I looked into existing CD covers that were popular, and I also looked into existing magazine adverts • One convention I found of these was that they have the album name, band name and, on the magazine advert, they had the date of release • The business of the magazine advert I found tended to depend on the genre of the magazine • For example, rock albums like Green Day, used a dark colour scheme, yet still had quite a lot of text on the front
  3. 3. • However, when I looked into the indie rock genre for magazine adverts and CD covers, they tended to be a lot more simple • Here is the Arctic Monkey’s AM advert and CD cover • I liked the simplicity of this design and Wanted to use this type of design for my advert, So this is a convention of indie rock adverts and cd covers that I decided to conform to • By conforming to this convention it meant challenging the convention of magazine adverts and CD/DVD covers from other genres • However, I wanted to keep my design simple as I thought this would be more effective to attract my audience to my product.
