The eye flow on the double page spread starts from the right to the left, and back to the right. The eye flow is like this because as people are reading a magazine, while flicking through the pages their eye would attract them to the right hand side first and then they would focus on the left. In this case, people would see the picture then move onto the title, then the text and back to the picture. The article title is taking up most of the space in the left side of the double page spread, and is very bold. The title explains the large a4 sized image of Christina Millian and The Dream having a “love thing”. This is so that readers wouldn’t get bored if there was alot of body text, and also because most readers would be interested in pictures rather than text. There is generally white space around the body text. The pull quote is placed at the body text so that it stands out before readers read the rest to interest them even more.
