How did you attract
your audience ?
• My colour scheme for my magazine is red, black, white and grey. I chose this as
these colours compliment each and help each other to stand out. For my front cover
I made the background grey which was quite dark but not so dark that it made all of
the text seem unclear. These are all colours that are popular with all age groups and
because they stand out they will attract my audience. By using al of these colours in
a combination I’ve created a house style for my magazine that will attract any age
group but it will also attract my main target audience
Font and lettering
• I have used a range of fonts throughout my magazine that enhances my
choice of colours. For my masthead I have used the font ‘Bauhaus93’, this
made my text curvy so it made it stand out in a good way where it seems
natural with the rest of the text. For certain sell lines I have chosen to make
them in capital letters because this would make it stand out to my audience
and highlight its importance, making them want to turn to my contents page
and find what page the article is on.
• My magazine follows the standard codes and conventions, for my front
cover I have my main image in the centre as the biggest image. This is the
same for my contents page which has my image on the right hand side and
my double page spread which has my image on the page on the right. I have
included quite a few sell lines where I feel that my page looks busy but not
too busy where my audience would feel bored and tired from reading my
front cover. On my contents page I have put the different articles in a list
format so that my audience don’t have to dart across the page all the time.
• I have used different content on my blog e.g. quotes and pictures where my
audience can visualise the artists rather than just read about them. I have
included a skyline that I felt that my audience would be interested in. On my
contents page I have also added in an extras section which tells my audience
about details that are relevant to the magazine but aren’t in the main articles.
• Overall I think that my magazine will attract my target audience because of
the different things that I have used. E.g. colours, images, fonts and the
layout. I feel that the colours used heighten the look of the magazine because
they aren’t seen as boring and old like colours such as brown and dark grey.
