Draft 1 With this design that I have created for my magazine, I thought that this draft was the best with the use of elements I used on my magazine from cover. With this draft of the magazine I wanted it to look like a professional magazine cover. So with this I was trying to follow the conventions of a professional magazine in the way in which they layout their magazines. With this magazine I decided to use Photoshop CS5 to create this magazine and with this software I thought it would be the best and most effective in presenting the magazine to the target audience. The tools I used were:- Shape Free transform Import Text box The elements I thought were effective on my magazine front cover were the use of the bold different colour on the page helped the different pieces of information stand out to the target audience and would draw them to the magazine and would persuade the target audience to want to purchase the magazine about the trailer Opposite Roles. Another element that I thought worked well was the use of the images on the front cover with these images I found that these would draw the target audience to them and would persuade the target audience to want to read the story relating to the images used on the front cover of my magazine. The only improvement that I would make to this draft even thought I am using it as my official magazine front cover would be to change the background to make it stand out more to the target audience and would draw the target audience to the magazine.
Draft 2With this draft of my magazine front cover, my thoughts for this draftwas that I was trying to create a magazine front cover without usingthe conventions of a magazine. I thought of doing this to make mymagazine front cover look different and make it stand out to thetarget audience as this would draw them to the magazine. For thisdraft of my magazine I kind of used the same element to make thismagazine but I just re-arranged the magazine to make it lookdifferent and to see whether it would look better which this other ideaI had. The elements I used to make this magazine were:-ShapeImportTextboxFor this magazine draft also I used Photoshop CS5 to create thismagazine from cover as it was the easiest software to use and tocreate the elements I wanted on this draft of my magazine frontcover. With this front cover I thought it would be a good idea to putthe title on a slant at the top of the page as with this it would lookcool and would draw the target audience to the magazine, with theuse of the different coloured headings and the shape this was also agood technique to use as with these element that made certainpieces of information stand out to the target audience. Theimprovements I would make to this draft of my magazine would havebeen to added more content to the magazine as it looks a little barein places and doesnt look like a professional magazine.
Draft 3With this draft of my magazine I wanted this draft to be presentableto the target audience and with this front cover I wanted to usedifferent elements such as picture and shapes to draw the targetaudience to this magazine. With this draft of the magazine I foundthat this was the easiest draft to create and I found that this draftwas quite effective in appealing to the target audience.The different t tools I used to make this magazine front cover were:-TextboxShapeImportImageWith these tools I used them on the software Photoshop CS5, I usedthis software to create this draft of the magazine as it is the easiestsoftware to use and I found that I was able to create the elements Iwanted on my magazine on this software. With this draft I kind oflooks the same as my first draft of the magazine I decided that I wasgoing to place the title and the image across the top and I thoughtthat by placing to images to the left of the page and placing headingin box (shapes) would help the information stand out to the targetaudience and with this it would make my magazine effective. Theimprovement I would have made to this draft of my magazine wouldbe to have placed more content on there such as by the shape thereis space by it which doesnt look good.
