How does your media product represent
particular social groups?
My music magazine represents my target audience
of teenage girls due to the content and style of my
magazine. My magazine shows what teenage girls
like for example feminine colours including pink
and purple as I have used this a lot throughout my
magazine. The pictures I have used in my magazine
are of teenage girls therefore my target audience
can relate to them.
The girls within my pictures are fashionable, pretty
and well groomed this shows the interest teenage
girls have of style, fashion and beauty. I have used
similar models within my magazine as they have
similar skin tones and are shown to have an
interest in fashion and beauty due to their hair
make up and clothes the models I have used have
a similarity of interests and little diversity but are
still relatable to all teenage girls.
My magazine is targeted at a large and wide
audience as I have chosen teenage girls as a whole
group who will be attracted to my magazine if they
have an interest in fashion and pop. In my opinion
a large percentage have an interest in fashion
beauty and the pop genre, because of this I believe
that my magazine will attract a large audience to
read it due to the representation of teenage girls.
My magazine cover is on the left,
the magazine on the right is a
fashion magazine I looked at during
my research. I have used a similar
casual pose for the model in the
main image is a feel that this
represented the fashion house style
of my magazine. I have put my main
image in a similar position to ELLE
by positioning the main image in the centre of the page surrounded
by the article titles. I have used a fashionable outfit for my cover
image to show the fashion house style and that my target audience
are interested in clothes and fashion. The top in my image is a similar
colour to the background image as this was done in the magazine
cover next to my magazine. I have used similar colours to the ELLE
magazine including purple, white, pink, black and grey to represent
the colours my target audience (teenage girls) like.
