Cornwall Life magazine analysis

  1. 1. Regional Magazine
  2. 2. Cornwall Life magazine uses the regional identity of its location to appeal not only to residents of Cornwall, but to a wider population e.g. Tourists. The image itself has many connotations Cornwall, with the coastal scene and surfers, thereby enhancing the identity of the magazine. I particularly like the use of layers, with the surfers at the bottom of the page and the circular cover line in the top corner. An effective feature of the cover is the variation of cover lines, printed in different colours. However, the substantial size of ‘Newquay’ overshadows the masthead somewhat.
  3. 3. Spread over two pages, the contents page for Cornwall Life boasts an array of images, all of which connote the British coastline. Whilst the font sizes are well-varied, the text itself is a little overwhelming at first glance. The positioning of the images is an issue; they are clustered at the top of the pages, leaving much blank space below. At the bottom, the magazine includes the individual profiles of Contributors. I feel that this adds a personal touch.
  4. 4. The images in this double page spread prove to be rather effective in communicating the lifestyle of the magazine’s demographic. The Surf Style heading thereby emphasises this theme. The layout of text is also rather pleasing to the reader as it carefully intertwines itself with the text. Moreover, it is not too dense.
