Double page spread analysis

  1. 1. The model covers the a whole page showing he is the main article. The smoke tries to use stereotypes to show he’s a modern musician. Also it tries to make him look ‘cool’. The shot used is a close up. The writing is in the bottom half of the right page. The font is quite small and hard to read which isn’t ideal for any magazine. The colour scheme is yellow black and white The target audience would be aimed at people aged 14-21 and people who would be interested in this genre of music.
  2. 2. The text is quite small which isn’t ideal to read. The use of the red text helps it to stand out. This is because the highlighted areas are questions and its shows them clearly to the reader. Also the writing is place on either side of the double page spread. The model goes across the middle of the double page spread and her clothing matches the colour scheme of the double page spread. The colour scheme is quite gloomy, the red, black and white. This suggests that the magazine is trying to give the model a serious feel, leading on to the article being a serious article. The target audience would be for ages between 16-25 and people who are a fan of this artist.
  3. 3. The models cover most of the double page spread. This is to symbolize that they are the main point of the article. The shot used would be a close up. The use of the prop guitar clearly shows the reader that they are a band. The writing is placed on the right side of the double page spread the font is quite plain and black. The title is in bold to show who the article is about. Also a key quote is written in blue. This shows it is a key piece of information for the article as is stands out compared to the rest of the text. The colour scheme is very plain. It consists of white, creamy off white and some blue. This gives a messy or tatty effect to the double page spread as the colours look as if they have faded or are really old. The target audience would be 16-25 and for people who are fans of the band.
  4. 4. The model has a sort of confused look on her face, (again linking to the title) also the position of her hand on her head can symbolise she is thinking. Also the close up shot used gives a clearer view of who she is and what she is doing The title is bold allowing it to stand out and use of the different colour in ‘Steps To Heaven’ could be seen as giving heaven a negative effect as ‘heaven’ would usually be associated with white and positive connotations, however the title changes it into black therefore possibly giving it a negative look, or trying to confuse the reader. The writing is placed on the right hand side and along the bottom in italic print. The colour scheme is very plain. No bright colours are used to give the article a cheerier look. Only black and white is used. The target audience would be around 16-25 year olds and fans of the artist.
  5. 5. The writing is placed on right page the double page spread. It is split into sections based on different subjects, these subjects are in a different colour in order to make them stand out at to show what the article’s about at a first glance. Also it has a hand written looking font which could suggest that it is a rather laid back interview about everyday subjects. The colour scheme is simple yet effective. The use of the plain white background and the pink boxes and font is helpful as the really important information is highlighted by the use of the pink. The model covers a whole page symbolizing that he is the main topic on the double page. The title ‘this is the world according to example’ and the model leaning over looking like he is about to whisper, could both show that in the article, he tells us stories about himself and secrets. The target audience would be for 13-18 year olds due to the more gossip like article and design of the double page spread.
  6. 6. The writing is placed all over the pages. They are spilt into sections with bold headings to show what the article is about . Also there is a area which is highlighted by a different shade of pink which have key information in it which stands out, and the black and white writing helps it to. Also the title ‘the gospel according to Nicki Minaj’ shows that this would be more a gossip interview than anything serious. The model is quite large on the double page spread. She is wearing unusual clothing and has a strange face expression in order to catch the eye of the reader. Also her arm covers her name which show that she is a big artist as all of her name isn’t need to be seen to know who she is. The colour scheme is quite feminine, the use of the shades of pink may attract female readers and it also its may suggest what the article contains. The target audience would be for 13-18 year olds and mainly aimed at girls.
  7. 7. The writing is all placed on the left page of the double page spread. It has red texts on top of normal black paragraphs which suggests that it is a Q&A article. Also the title in the large title catches the eye and the rather formal font suggests the article is a formal and serious Q&A rather than just gossip. The colour scheme is simple but makes the article look clear. The use of the red make the key information stand out from the white background. The model covers on whole page. The producer of the magazine try to advertise the model as well as they can because he is very famous. This will make people who are fans of him want to read this magazine. The target audience would be for 13-18 year olds because of who the article is about
  8. 8. The theme used is just red and white. Not much red is used in the actual text except to highlight who the model is. Also the red fade look could symbolize anger and show the phrase ‘the red smoke’. The model covers one page of the double page spread. The shot used is a close up. The red shading used matches the colour scheme of the pages. Also he comes across as angry so this could show what the article is about. The text is all on the right of the double page spread. The writing is in big paragraphs which suggests the article would be more of a story or a report. Also the use of the bold capital letters help show when a new important paragraph starts.
