Also I decided to use bright colours like blue in my colour scheme that would beimmediately eye catching but yet appealing to my audience. Since 60% of the people I surveyed saidthat they were first drawn to the image on a front cover I decided to make the image on my ownfront cover very large in order for it to take up the whole page and even overlap the masthead sincethis would be the most appealing to my audience, I also kept the amount of copy on my front coverto a minimum but only including 2 puffs, a headline, 2 cover lines and 2 strap lines since 83% of thepeople in my survey thought that a front cover should have minimal text on it.
