  3. 3. Codes and conventions of a POP music magazine front cover.<br />One main image which takes up the whole cover<br />- Applies to the main feature article <br />- Studio photographs of the band/singers which conveys their attitude<br /><ul><li>Direct address</li></ul>Title (masthead)-has an unique font<br />- Usually one word- Fills the width of the cover, or is in top left corner<br />- Positioning statement - usually above or below the title<br />- Price and issue date by the title (11pt size)<br />- Sometimes by the barcode<br />Puff - offers something extra to the magazine<br />Buzz words - e.g. "exclusive"<br />Cover lines - text on the front cover, stating articles inside the magazine<br />Barcode<br />Strip usually containing artists names who are included in the magazine<br />Colour - very simple colour scheme, only a few colours used<br />
  4. 4. One main image which takes up the whole cover – Mymain image is direct address which conforms to the codes and conventions of a pop music magazine so it fit’s in with the other magazines on the shelves in store. Also it applies to my main feature article. <br />Masthead- My masthead has a unique font which fills the width of the magazine and is directly above the positioning statement, issue date and price, so it conforms to the codes and conventions. <br />HIP POP<br />I have used the Buzzword ‘EXCLUSIVE’<br />Another way I have conformed to the codes and conventions is that I have used cover lines on my front cover to state what is inside the magazine as this will appeal to my audience and persuade them to buy it. <br />I have also used a strip at the bottom of my magazine which contains names of artists who are included in my magazine inside.<br />Despite using a simple colour scheme, I used bright bold colours to appeal to my audeince and make my front cover look fun and busy. <br />
