Media magazine analysis covers

  1. 1. On the front of this rolling stone magazine, it clearly shows an image of a famous singer called, Lorde, she is layered over the name of the magazine which could imply that she is more important than the magazine and that she will be the main thing that will sell the magazine. As you can see, all of the writing on this magazine are different fonts and sizes, the size of the text symbolises how important the text is, the text which says “BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN”, is in bold, large, red writing which draws the audiences eyes to it as it is an important piece of information. However, the other pieces of text which are just in black, small font can show that that piece of information is not very important to the magazine. The colour scheme for this front cover for the rolling stone magazine is very bold and striking. This is a good method to get the audiences attention to key points of the magazine, as you can see, the title for the magazine in in black, white and red. These three colours alone will stand out an awful lot against the plain white background.
  2. 2. On the front of this NME magazine, it clearly shows an image of a famous singer called, John Lennon, he is the largest piece of the magazine which implies that he is the main thing that is going to sell the magazine. The cover is a Z layout, the human eye reads from left to right, meaning that the audience will automatically read from the section that says “NME” to the section which says, “iconic Photos”. Naturally, the human eye then goes diagonally across the page, on this cover, your eyes will go to john Lennon's eyes and then to his name on the bottom right hand side. The colour scheme for this magazine is in my opinion, very vintage and pastel. Which relates the the artist in the main cover. The main picture is in black and white which then makes the title and other information stand out as it is in a brighter, more outstanding colour.
  3. 3. The cover of this KERRANG magazine is a Z layout, the human eye reads from left to right, meaning that the audience will automatically read from the section that says the title “KERRANG” to the section which says, “This is the best show out there”. Naturally, the human eye then goes diagonally across the page, on this cover, your eyes will go to the bands name, “green day” and then through out diagonally towards the “New Albums” section. The way this magazine has positioned all of its information is in a very thoughtful way as they have left gaps empty where the audience wouldn't’t look, and filled the background with a picture of a very famous band lead singer. The colour scheme for this cover is very outstanding and instantly gets the audiences attention. The more vibrant colours like yellow have important information in them so that it draws the audiences eyes straight to that section.
