  3. 3. The basic layout of bothEXPANDED (My Magazine) magazine is similar however VIBE obviously both magazines will differ with distinctive styles. There are differences in the style of font and placement of sell lines. Also my magazine uses a medium close up whereas Vibe magazine used a medium shot for the dominating image on the front cover. The sell lines on the magazine are different as they relate to the specifics of both magazine. For example the main sell lines on both will relate relevantly to what is on the cover of each magazine. My magazine consists of a footer highlighting artists that are mentioned in the magazine, this is to inform the reader further and interest them in purchasing the magazine. Vibe magazine does not have a footer however it does have a header. My magazine has a flasher offering the reader something more whereas Vibe magazine does not. Differences with my front cover and  published music magazine front cover.
  4. 4. One of the obviousEXPANDED (My Magazine) VIBE similarities in both contents pages for the magazines is something all magazines follow: a colour scheme. Both magazines use 3/4 colours for the contents page which they feel are most complimentary to the magazine. My magazine uses blue, black, purple and white. Vibe magazine uses two different shades of grey, white and black. Both magazine have a set of contents where there is brief information about the article and then a page number next to it. This allows easy access for the reader as well as making it convenient. The masthead stating ‘contents’ for both magazines uses a similar font style. The style is bold and basic therefore stands out to the reader easily. The contents page of both magazines mentions the date. This informs readers with what issue it is and is useful Similarities with my contents page and  for marketing purposes. published music magazine contents page.
  5. 5. The layout of both contentsEXPANDED (My Magazine) pages differ in many ways. I VIBE added an editors note in my magazine to address my readers personally. Readers may feel more interacted with the magazine this way as it gives them a personal insight to the magazine. Both magazines follow different colour schemes to suit their magazines. My magazine uses bold, vibrant colours that were popular in my research such as pink purple and blue. Vibe magazine uses black, white and grey to follow the consistent scheme of their magazine. I used several images to advertise different features that the magazine offers whereas Vibe magazine uses one dominating image of a female placed accordingly to the text. My magazine offers a full set of contents allowing the reader to access what is on every page conveniently. Vibe magazine only mentions the page numbers of certain Differences with my contents page  pages. and published music magazine  contents page.
  6. 6. SIMILARITIES • both magazine have images dominating a page • the main text is in black and another colour can be used to highlight significant pieces of text •Both follow the colour scheme that runs consistently through the magazine •The headline of the double page spread is placed accordingly to the magazine and expressed in capitals to stand out DIFFERENCES•I have used more than one image, I used a bold, eyecatching image on the left spread and then anotherimage as a faint background to the text on the rightspread•Both magazine follow a different colour scheme tosuit the style of the magazine•I chose to take a main quote out of the interviewand highlight it so it stands out and interests thereader in the spread
  7. 7. 2. How does your media productrepresent particular social groups ?
  8. 8. My media product would convey a number of social groups, and break away from the stereotypical audienceassociated with the hip hop and RnB genre. Numerous key features associated with the genre would be things suchas: attitude, power, stylish, urban, baggy clothing, jewellery and upbeat fast/ rap music. To convey the RnB/ HipHop image, I got my model for my front cover to wear relevant clothing such as the baseball cap and baggy t shirt.As you can see this is very similar to the artist and fits in with the urban theme well. The genre is also oftenassociated with jewellery so I ensured my model was wearing jewellery that would stand out to the audience.Colours often associated with the genre are trendy and put together well to make a statement. In my model I keptthe scheme vibrant with colours like white, purple and pink. The genre is often stereotypically linked with a male,black audience. However to break away from this stereotype I used a female, Asian model to represent the genre.This is to show that there are a variety of audiences that link to the genre instead of just the stereotypical audience.
  9. 9. 3.What kind of media institution might distribute your product and why?
  10. 10. The company would allow it to reach the  audience  by  selling  it  from supermarkets,  newsagents,  music shops,  gigs  .  It  could  also  be advertised on the IPC  website  where  IPC Media is a very successful company thatpeople  could  subscribe  to  the  produces over 85 media brands. The companymagazine. publishes a wide range of magazine to suit everyone therefore my magazine being of a genre that does not exist in the company at the moment would not be a problem as they are all about the variety. They have a very wide audience range so there would definitely be people of interest to my magazine. Their brands collectively reach 20 million people every month so it would attract people to take a look at new magazines. Their audience consists of roughly being 44% men and two thirds women so there is a decent variety of gender. They clearly have knowledge in the music industry as the are the distributors of leading music magazine NME. To conclude I would say that distributing my magazine with the company would be great as it would allow the company to expand their audience and the genres they focus on. It would also be good for my magazine as the company has many great qualities.

  15. 15. 5. How did you attract/ address your audience?
  16. 16. I attracted the audience using bold,vibrant colours such as red, pink, white andpurple. I chose to use these colours as theywere amongst the most popular in my researchresults. I used white for the masthead as itwould stand out against the solid colourbackground and capture attention. I used red forthe main sell line as this would allow it to standout against everything and look almost as if it isjumping out of the page instantly attractingreaders. I also put a variety of interestingcover lines on the front cover so that oncereaders were drawn in by the bold colours usedthey would be keen on purchasing the magazineby reading the range of cover lines that wouldappeal to them. From my research I gathered thatpeople were most willing to pay £2-£3 for amusic magazine therefore I priced mymagazine relevantly to what would appeal to amajority audience. My magazine is priced at afair amount of £2. I addressed the audience by usinglanguage that was not too formal but morerelaxed and casual. This allows the audience tofeel more comfortable whilst reading theproduct.
  17. 17. I attracted the audience using bold,vibrant colours which followed my colourscheme. Keeping the colours consistent adds abetter and more professional look to themagazine which the audience will feel attractedto more. I used the research I gathered todecide how many images I use on my contentspage. The most popular feedback was too use anumber of three different photographs. I did soas I felt this would appeal to the audience most.Also using a variety of pictures balances out thetext giving the reader a good amount of both. To interact with readers on a morepersonal level I included an editors note. I feelthis gives the reader more and more of aninside aspect of the magazine. the language I used to address theaudience was not too formal. It was laid backand casual which allows them too feelcomfortable with the magazine. I also included the contents withbrief information and a page number which isconvenient. It also allows easy access to articlesfor readers. This is organised with the pagebeing placed on the left side in order for thepage to maintain a creative look.
  18. 18. AUDIENCE FEEDBACK Overall, how would you rate this magazine?
  19. 19. 6. What have you learnt about technologies from the process of constructing this product?
  20. 20. InternetAdobe Photoshop Digital Camera TECHNOLOGIES USED Printer Adobe InDesign PC  Blogger
  21. 21. USING ADOBE PHOTOSHOPThis  shows  one  of  my  stages  of development  and  how  I  used Adobe  Photoshop  to manipulate my photographs. I  edited  the  picture  to  make  the artist stand out and bring  out  the  colours  of  the  magazine,  this  allows  it  to  appear  more  dominant  on  the  cover.  I  adjusted  the  hue  and  levels  of  brightness  and  contrast.  It  is  visible  that  the  slightest  bit  of  editing  can  make  a  big  difference  that  is  why  Adobe  Photoshop  was  a  great software programme to  use  for  the  manipulation  of  my photographs.
  22. 22. USING ADOBE InDesignThis  shows  some  of  my  stages of development and how I used Adobe  InDesign  to  put  my double page spread together. Here  I  added  a  drop  shadow  to  the  text  as  it  allows  it  to  stand  out  against  everything  else on the page better. I also  changed  the  metrics  to  allow  the  text  to  fill  the  space  better.  Adobe  InDesign  had  numerous  features  that  I  could use and try out too see  what  was  best  for  the  creation of my magazine.
  23. 23. 7. Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the progression from it to the full product?
  24. 24. Looking back at my college magazine  I  can  see  that  I  have  learnt  a  lot  about  the  conventions  of  making  a  magazine.  Also  I  feel  I  grasped  a  better  understanding  of  the  programmes  I  used,  such  as:  Adobe  Photoshop,  Adobe  In  Design.  The  overall  image  of  my  music  magazine  is  clearly  better  than  my  college  magazine.  My  college  magazine  consists  of  a  simple,  boring  colour  scheme whereas my music magazine  is more  vibrant  and  attractive  to  the  eye.  Also  I  used  Photoshop  to  enhance  my  original  images  and  allow  them  to  become  more  eye  catching  in  my  music  magazine.   With  my  college  magazine  I  didn’t  use  Photoshop  to  its  maximum  ability  as  it  wasn’t  something  I  was  used  to  or  knew  how  to  use  effectively.  In  the  period  of  time  between creating the two magazine I  also  got  better  at  photography  and My  music  magazine  is  better  developed  and  enhanced  with  therefore  was  able  to  take  better more  use  of  software  to  make  the  magazine  to  a  professional  photographs  and  a  variety  of  shots standard. My college magazine is dull and gave me a chance to  for  my  front  cover,  contents  page look at where improvement is required. and double page spread.
  25. 25. My  college  and  music magazine  contents  pages  are both  clearly  very  different.    I have  used  the  same  number of  photographs  on  both contents  pages  however  the overall look  of both differ. My music  magazine  stands  out more as it does not follow the basic  look  of  the  college contents.  Also  it  looks  a  lot more  professional  as  it  has more information on the page and  not  many  gaps  in comparison  to  the  college contents.  Overall  I  think  it  is definitely  clear  that  my knowledge  and  understanding of using software and creating a  magazine  have  progressed for a better outcome.
