Bernard MT Condensed. • I quite like this font as it is quite bold, and different. I think it will stand out well, especially as my title is just a single letter it needs to be an eye catching font and I think this works. I like how the font is quite different, and not symmetrical. I think this would really catch my audiences attention on the front cover.
Castellar. • I like the contrast of the black and white in this font. For my colour I am thinking of using white and I think a black strip in the letter will be really effective and really draw in the attention of my audience. I think it is very bold, and will appeal to both male and female. I think this would be a good font to use on my front cover.
Viner Hand ITC. • I really like how different this font is. It is quite unusual which I think will draw my audience in. By having something quite different it really catches your attention, which could interest a wider audience. Although this is not as bold as my other choices, I think it’ll work quite well and would look really effective against a coloured background.
Rosewood Std. • I really like the 3D look of this font, and I also like the pattern on the front. This font is very bold, and can easily catch wither genders attention. The letter is very bold on its self and I also think it will be really effective against a bright colour. The contrast of black and white on the font is the main thing of the magazine, and I have some ideas of having a black and white theme, (Central image b&w and font a colour) and I think this will fit in very well.
Old English Text MT. • I really like how unique this font is. I like the flicks and different curves etc. I think it makes a really memorable font, which will make my audience remember my magazine. It is very eye catching as it is so different. I think the curves will really appeal to my female audience but the sharp corners and boldness of the font will also appeal to my male audience. I think it will draw mt target audience in well.
Vladimir Script. • Something about this font really caught my eye, and I think it would do the same on the front page of my magazine. However, it is not as bold as I would like my font to be. But I think it would appeal to both genders, and the slant is very eye catching.
Magneto. • I really like the boldness of this font. It is very thick making it very eye catching. It will appeal to both genders as the boldness would really attract my male audience where there is also a slightly girly curve attracting my female audience. I think this would look really good against a bright background, the contrast would really draw you in. For me this font drew me in straight away and I think it would do the same on my front cover of my magazine.
Trajan Pro. • For my other fonts I have chosen very different and unique choices. However, for my last option I thought I would choose quite a simple font. As I think simple is quite often the most effective, and could look very good against a bright coloured background. I think this font is very plain but also very bold.
Audience feedback on Masthead options.I want to have a bold and eye catching masthead, and I think my options show this. And I thinkmy audience feedback will help me determine which one would be the best for my magazine.For my first masthead I would say this was my audiences least favourite option. They said it wasunique bit looks quite tacky, they do not feel it fits with my magazine genre, and they feel it isslightly too in your face, rather than eye catching.For my second masthead option I think they defiantly preferred this to my first option. They saidthey thought it was bold without having to have a thick font, they liked the neatness of thisoption. Also, many people said they like this option however, it would look better on a differentred background. Although a lot of people liked this magazine there were a few that have said thatthey like it but is not suitable for a magazine.I think this was my audiences favourite masthead option. They all thought this is a very boldoption and really stands out. There were one or two options saying to brighten the redbackground to add even more bold features to really catch your eye.Finally for my last masthead option all of my audience have said that it is not right for themagazine. They say it is too formal and does not suit the genre of the magazine.My audiences favourite option was my third masthead. I think this is because the font is not tooformal and could easily appeal to my target audience. I think this option is the one that standsout most and I think this is what intrigued my audience.
