Additional information that doesn’t
relate to the main reason of the cover
as well helps expand the target
audience's interests
LANGUAGE
Language is quite informal
and emotive
Codes and Conventions list: (covers)
-MASTHEAD: throughout all 3 covers that I researched I found that their mastheads were capitalised and dominating.
-COVER IMAGE: Most use just one single person in their image which I will do but there are some with group shots, added
images as well as the main cover image will also add interest to much a wider audience. All are posed images to provide that
professional photo look and helps audience to understand their representations due to the emotions being displayed on their
facial expressions
-SELL LINES: Provide additional information and don’t just talk about the main story which provides interest for all found that
they all were at the top of each cover
-TYPOGRAPHY: The colour choices are made to match the films genre or the tone the magazine is trying to portray
-LANUAGE: Mix of both formal and informal to appeal to a wide target audience
-SHOT TYPE: All 3 of the covers a picked to analysed have eye line shots suggested that they want to create some equality
between the front cover and the reader
-LAYOUT + DESIGN: Masthead in all covers is kept very visible so their brand can be easily identified Total Film tends to use much
more exciting and intense images resulting in maybe a younger target audience than the other two
Page numbers
Separated columns
Ad relating to film and reaching
the needs of the intended target
audience
Headings quite
small
Digital convergence entices
audience
The image allows the audience
to identify that it’s the front
cover which makes them want
to read on and find out more
Pastel colour scheme
matches advert to
Date + Masthead
Features listed in a
formal way
Establishes that the image
relates to the main story soon
as no others are included
Overlapping title making it clear
That the image is the main part
of the whole magazine
Colour scheme displayed
matches front cover and
would be continuous
throughout
Page numbers clear and bold
Issue date
Establishes it is the Main
image covering the main
title of the page
Different columns and a
variety of different headings
Smaller image because it
may just be to do with a
feature in the magazine
and not the main article
Heavy bold fond to all
for easy identification
of the page
Large page
numbers
Equal separation between
contents and main image making
them equally important
Codes and Conventions list (Contents):
-Main Image is clear and is clearly represented as something to do with the main article
-Colour scheme somewhat matches the front cover
-Extra small images added
-Adverts relating to films
-Websites adds digital convergence and helps promotion found at the bottom of the contents page
-Main image sometimes covers the title contents to really highlight that it’s the most important
-Separated columns 1-3
-Lists of features with page numbers large and visible for easy access
-Sublines in each different section of list to give information about the articles
