Music Magazine Evaluation

  1. 1. Hannah Hayland Music Magazine Evaluation
  2. 2. Front Cover <ul><li>Masthead </li></ul>Cover Line Main Image Slogan Lead Article Pull Quote
  3. 3. Contents Page <ul><li>Page Heading </li></ul>Numbered Images For Particular Articles Magazine Articles And Page Numbers
  4. 4. Double Page Spread Featured Images Pull Quote Featured Article Standfirst
  5. 5. Ways My Media Product Uses, Develops Or Challenges Forms And Conventions Of Real Media Products <ul><li>Masthead – My masthead is conventional as it is in the top </li></ul><ul><li>left hand corner of the page. It immediately lets people </li></ul><ul><li>identify the magazine style and genre. Also the font style </li></ul><ul><li>used reflects the genre of the magazine (indie). </li></ul><ul><li>Left third – It is commonly used in a magazine so that </li></ul><ul><li>people can indentify the magazine when on shelves. I </li></ul><ul><li>achieved this by placing the masthead, freebies, cover line </li></ul><ul><li>and pull quote in this area. </li></ul><ul><li>Article – I used a different text layout for my article, </li></ul><ul><li>because I wanted to make my magazine different and </li></ul><ul><li>individual to the current magazines out there today. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How Does Your Media Product Represent Particular Social Groups <ul><li>My magazine portrays my band as serious and fun in the </li></ul><ul><li>images used. And this makes them seem ‘normal’ and </li></ul><ul><li>relatable to young people, even though they are famous. </li></ul><ul><li>The article and the images makes them seem as people </li></ul><ul><li>that you like and as someone you can admire, because of </li></ul><ul><li>their fame. Also the language of the article reinforces the </li></ul><ul><li>representation of the fun and friendly band, because the </li></ul><ul><li>language is casual and relevant to the particular age group </li></ul><ul><li>the magazine is directed towards. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What Kind Of Media Institution Might Distribute My Media Product And Why <ul><li>I would choose IPC Media to publish and distribute my </li></ul><ul><li>magazine, because IPC also publish NME, which is similar </li></ul><ul><li>to my magazine, as we are both advertise the same genre </li></ul><ul><li>of music. Also it is directed slightly more towards the male </li></ul><ul><li>audience. Whereas my magazine is directed more towards </li></ul><ul><li>the female audience, because there isn’t a mainstream </li></ul><ul><li>magazine directed mainly for a female audience. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Type Of Audience For My Product <ul><li>The type of audience for my product would be directed </li></ul><ul><li>towards young people, probably around 16 – 24 year olds. </li></ul><ul><li>Also my magazine is directed more towards the female </li></ul><ul><li>audience, with the female band and the colour scheme. </li></ul><ul><li>Although it is not specifically targeted towards the female </li></ul><ul><li>audience, overall I feel that it would appeal more to </li></ul><ul><li>females than males. </li></ul>
  9. 9. How I Attracted/Addressed The Audience <ul><li>I used the colour scheme to attracted the audience. The </li></ul><ul><li>bright colours helped to represented the genre of my </li></ul><ul><li>magazine (indie). Also the images of the band helped to </li></ul><ul><li>attract the audience, because they would be the type of </li></ul><ul><li>band and genre of music that my target audience would </li></ul><ul><li>listen to and aspire to be like. And the headings of the other </li></ul><ul><li>articles included in the magazine would attract the </li></ul><ul><li>audience, because that would be the type of lifestyle my </li></ul><ul><li>audience would lead and be the type of subject that they </li></ul><ul><li>would be interested in. </li></ul>
  10. 10. SurveyMonkey
  11. 11. What I Have Learnt About Technologies From The Process Of Constructing This Product <ul><li>I have learnt how to use and how to upload my work onto </li></ul><ul><li>Blogger. Blogger is a good way to store work, because it is </li></ul><ul><li>easily accessible and simple to use. And I have learnt how </li></ul><ul><li>to use Photoshop and how to edit images. Also I used </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook to get answers for my questionnaire, although I </li></ul><ul><li>only received few responses for my questionnaire through </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook. </li></ul>
  12. 12. What I Have Learnt <ul><li>I have improved my Photoshop skills since I designed my </li></ul><ul><li>college magazine. And I have learnt how to edit images </li></ul><ul><li>through Photoshop. Planning your work is important so that </li></ul><ul><li>you have an idea of what you want to do, but you also have </li></ul><ul><li>to experiment to see what works and what doesn’t. </li></ul>
