how is the layout effective and eye catching? • The layout is not very effective as it is quite common in magazines, therefore it does not stand out. • If it doesn’t stand out from the rest it will not catch the readers attention. • There are no interesting color schemes used and the large image of Shakira seems to fade in the backgroundThe text in a white box is very because of all the overlappingtypical and boring. images and text.
style of graphics/ photo manipulation• Some of the colours in the larger image appear to be enhanced and made brighter in order to make the image more bold and eye-catching.• The smaller photograph has been air-brushed and touched up.• The lighting has also been darkened to add a shadow around her, thus making her stand out more in the frame.
organisation of information • At first glance the first thing you see is the larger image of Shakira because of its size and its placed almost at the centre of the layout. • The next thing that’s most visible is the second photograph of the singer • Finally the reader is drawn to the bold white title which leads them to the text below.
