Looking back at your preliminary task what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product? Question 7
<ul><li>My preliminary task was a practice of using InDesign before I created my final product. Here is a copy; </li></ul>As you can see this front cover that I first created is very simplistic compared to my current one. I took a photograph of my friend outside of my college against a wall. This is different to my final product because the photographs that I took for that were in a specific setting with different backgrounds of different areas. I have used a bold masthead but I still think this is very simplistic and doesn’t really stand out to the audience. Also the subheadings are the same, because I used a pale yellow it isn’t very clear, on my final product I overcame this problem by putting boxes behind the text so that it was more clear.
<ul><li>Since doing my preliminary task I have learnt many things such as; </li></ul><ul><li>I needed a more interesting image for my front cover, something that would catch the reader’s attention . </li></ul><ul><li>I needed to edit my photographs using Photoshop to make a more effective use of colour. </li></ul><ul><li>I needed to use a more interesting font on the pages, something that stood out and was clear to read </li></ul>
<ul><li>I also knew that when I was creating my final product I needed to create a more interesting layout on all three pages, something that was clear and easy to read and also something that stood out to my target audience. </li></ul><ul><li>I wanted to create a front cover that was clear to the readers what kind of magazine it was before they even picked it up. I think that I have achieved this by using the shot of Alex with his guitar to immediately show that it is about music. Also the title ‘Vinyl’ adds to this. </li></ul>
