  1. 1. Planning<br />Natasha Marlow<br />
  2. 2. My Magazine<br />I want the genre of my magazine to be indie, particularly aimed at people who have a passion for music and what’s going on in the local music scene. I live in Reading, so my magazine will be about the music scene here.<br />I will include things like gigs that are happening, and features on new bands that are up and coming in the area.<br />My magazine will have monthly editions because as it is local there will be less content for the magazine. <br />
  3. 3. Masthead Font<br />
  4. 4. Magazine Name<br />As my magazine is going to be a local music magazine, I want it’s name to have some sort of relevance.<br />From my list I have decided to take the word ‘Reading’ however to make it more catchy and appropriate I have shorted it to ‘Ding!. I feel this is a good name for a local reading music magazine as it is a slang word used for Reading and will appeal to my target market.<br />
  5. 5. My Masthead<br />
  6. 6. My Photo Shoot<br />For the images I am going to use on my front cover and my double page spread I am going to take pictures of my friend Robin.<br />The photo shoot will take place on Tuesday 15th February at my house. This is because I want to create almost a studio setting for my images as I feel this will create a more professional look.<br />

  8. 8. Location Recce<br />I wanted to do my photo shoot in a studio, but I couldn’t. Instead I decided to use my summer house because it has plain white walls. This was the closest I could get to a studio. <br />
  9. 9. Props<br />I decided to use an electric guitar as the main prop for my images. This is because I wanted to make it feel more realistic and give the impression that my model was in a band. This is also quite a conventional prop to use as many music magazines use guitars as props in their photos.<br />
  10. 10. Front Cover<br />
  11. 11. Colour<br />
  12. 12. Colour<br />For my front colour I am going to use the colour red. From my magazine analysis I found out that this is quite a popular colour to use. This is probably because it is very bold and also it is quite a male colour which is the gender at which most music magazines, including my own, are aimed at.<br />The other colours I will use on my magazine will be white and black. This is because I think they are good bold colours and will contrast well against the red. Also, white and black are conventionally used on music magazine covers.<br />
  13. 13. Flashes<br />
  14. 14. Flashes<br />For my flashes I have decided to use plus signs instead of stars or other similar shapes. I found out from my magazine analysis that many magazines do this and so I want to follow this convention and use it in my own magazine.<br />
  15. 15. Mode Of Address<br />I want the mode of address for my magazine to quite formal but with a small amount of slang used. I feel this is the most relevant for my target market and that they will appreciate this more than total queen’s English or total slang.<br />Also, I know that most music magazine use this mode of address when writing.<br />
  16. 16. Images<br />On my front cover I only want to use one main image. To advertise the other articles in my magazine I will use headlines as I feel this will make my front cover less cluttered and easier to read.<br />
