  1. 1. How did you attract/addressHow did you attract/address your target audience?your target audience?
  2. 2. MastheadMasthead I wanted to have a hint of humour to my magazines masthead. This is why I carefully thought of the way it should look. The name “The Jam” came from the young and teen saying of “listening to my jam” as therefore teens would understand the pun of the relationship between the magazines name and the pot of jam placed behind it. I chose the font for 2 reasons 1: It works alongside the name of the magazine and the image of the jam pot, because the font looks like a dripping liquid, and because its red it looks like jam. 2:Its very individual and recognisable. I wanted to choose a font that hasn't been used for any other well known media products. For example Kerrang magazine has a very individual font and therefore the logo is even more recognisable
  3. 3. CompetitionsCompetitions The competition that is shown on the banner of the front cover is giving away free festival tickets for a well known festival that is very popular with teens, which is why I chose this festival in particular is its strongly linked to my target audience. Having the logo of the festival placed beneath it means that its eye catching to the viewers, and any that have previously attended the festival (most likely teens) will recognise the logo and feel as though they should enter the competition to win the chance for free tickets. Also because the majority of the audience will be students, it means that they will have the time to spare to enter this competition, and they will probably find it worthwhile as they wont have the money to spare to buy a ticket. 6 out of 9 of the people who did my questionnaire had attended either Reading or Leeds festival.
  4. 4. PhotographsPhotographsI wanted my photographs to convey the theme of not being edited and set up to look perfected like most mainstream magazines. Throughout my magazine I have tried to show that personality is more important than appearance and following the crowd. Therefore I decided to do my photographs in a studio with a white backdrop, therefore there would be no distractions, only focus on the model and what they are doing. Rather than focusing on where they are (such as the red carpet). My images were composed to connect with the target audience as much as possible, the image on the far right shows a teen girl with a wrist piercing, which relates to the indie readers of the magazine. The other images are all set up to look relaxed and fun, to show that not all girls have to be perfect prim models. Using photographs like this will attract the target audience who don't agree that girls have to follow a feminine role.
  5. 5. Text:Images ratioText:Images ratio Because my magazine is aimed at a younger/teen audience, I decided to have the pages consisting more of images than text. When a page consists of mostly (or only) text, it can look quite overwhelming and boring. If the page has some interesting and relevant images to the article then it can keep the readers attention for longer, and make the article all round more appealing.
  6. 6. LayoutLayout I chose for my main article layout to be as simplistic as possible. As a teen, reading a block paragraph can be boring and the information doesn't always “go in”. Therefore I chose to have my main article in a question and answer layout, this way the interview is separated into different sections and the reader can pick and choose which areas of the interview interests them enough to want to read about it. By writing exactly what the interviewee responded it makes the interview a lot more personal. The reader knows their exact response to the question they were asked, this means they feel as though they are getting to know the band member more because the article hasn't been changed and manipulated by the editor.
