Bold masthead, use 
of black shadow 
makes it stand out 
more attracting the 
reader. 
Header: Mentioning of a 
free gift inside attracts the 
target audience, the fact they 
are cinema tickets suggests 
this magazine is for a younger 
audience the word ‘free’ is 
written in yellow in order to 
stand out and ‘cinema tickets’ 
is also written in a different 
colour to grab the readers 
attention and against the pink 
background this works really 
well. 
Use of flasher: attracts 
readers attention the 
word ‘new’ is written in 
yellow in order to stand 
out and against the pink 
background it works well 
House style/colour scheme is pink yellow 
white and blue, bright colours which stand out 
these are typically girly colours so this suggests 
the magazine is targeted at young girls 
Main image is of a well known 
boy pop band, this suggests 
that is aimed at younger aged 
people into pop music and 
more likely to be females. 
Coverlines: ‘soap boys’ written 
in bubbly white font to grab 
the readers attention and the 
use of yellow font for ‘stripped’ 
helps to draw the reader in 
more, the use of cheesy 
language again suggests this 
magazine is for a young 
audience and as it is on about 
boys ‘stripping’ it would be fair 
to say this magazine is targe 
-ted more at females 
Pull quote- written in white 
bubbly font in order to stand out, 
Footer: number 7 is yellow in 
again helps us to realise this mag 
order to stand out along with 
is targeted at a younger age group 
the white bubbly text against 
as language is informal/direct and 
pink background makes it 
cheesy more eye-catching 
Barcode/date/issue no. 
Logo
This magazine is targeted at girls aged 11-14, 
with a strong interest in pop music, male and 
female celebrities, gossip, TV shows, films and 
make-up etc we know this because.. 
Main cover line: use of language 
here is cheesy and informal so 
therefore suggests it is aimed at 
younger people, the topic being 
discussed being cringes and kissing 
would lead us further to believe 
that it is aimed at females, we can 
also see this through the choice of 
colour being girly pinks/whites. 
Images: main image is of a well known boy band 
associated with pop and on the front cover pop 
artists are featured e.g. Kelly Clarkson and girls 
aloud these artists/bands are from the pop genre 
Layout: is simple and easy to 
follow, with the rule of thirds 
being used. The simplicity of the 
layout again suggests it is for a 
younger target audience 
Coverlines: ‘314’ is written in 
Footer: mentions posters which suggests again that it is for a younger 
audience, pictures of the posters which are featured inside , 
attract the target audience. And the bright coloured childlike bubbly 
outstanding white attracts them 
Sell line: ‘bursting with backstage 
gossip’ this suggests it is for a young 
female audience as they are more 
likely to be interested in gossip 
Use of bright eye catching feminine 
colours attract the target audience 
too and therefore suggests 
someone interested in pop music 
would read this magazine as it is 
clearly from the pop genre. And 
the use of well known 
artists/bands being on the front 
would attract them 
Language used: ‘you’ll look like a 
star’ this attracts the reader 
making them believe that by 
buying this magazine it will help 
them to achieve a ‘star like’ look. 
This also reinforces the idea that 
the reader of this magazine would 
be interested in fashion 
yellow in order to stand out and the ‘and’ symbol is too, this is done to Grab the 
readers attention emphasise that there is even more prizes to be won etc 
and this attracts the target audience. This again suggests it is aimed at a 
younger audience and as it mentions ‘party outfit's we know it is targeted 
more at females
We love Pop is a new monthly music magazine which launched in September 2011. Each issue contains 68 pages and its target audience is 
teenage girls aged between 13-15 years old. Egmont saw a gap in the market after another pop music magazine ended called Smash hits in 2006. 
Smash Hits had a similar target audience to the now audience of We Love Pop and therefore when they closed there was a gap to fill for the 
benefit of this age group. The reason the magazine stopped was due to social media and websites gaining in popularity. But ironically it was 
social media at their disposal that helped to launch successfully We Love Pop and similarly they have Facebook and Twitter pages as well as a 
website in order to provide access all areas to the latest music. We Love Pop is published by Egmont UK and has circulation figures of around 
115,000. 
The typical content of a We Love Pop issue are articles on artists/bands, interviews, features on film, fashion, technology, and beauty and 
advertisements from companies also aiming at the teen audience such as Universal Music, Boohoo and So Fragrances.

The masthead looks bold, bright and 
quirky as it is slanted and the black and 
orange are strong colours that stand out. 
Black normally has quite negative 
connotations however here it could 
simply be used to make the masthead 
literally “pop”. Similarly the neon orange 
has connotations of happiness and 
energy which sparks from the colours 
used to make it (red and yellow). This 
could be a representation of the young 
teen audience. Orange also has 
connotations of heat which could link to 
how the young female audience find the 
cover male “hot”. 
Flasher in the black and orange creates a house style and 
attracts the target audience to the fact its a new magazine. It 
being new can perhaps make the audience feel they are getting 
not only the latest gossip but the newest magazine, hot off the 
press. 
Medium Close up of a male looking flirtatious 
and suggestive but in a “watershed” way due 
to the audience only being 13-15 years old. 
There is a direct eye contact which pierces 
through to the reader and create a real 
intimate feel as its like he is looking at the 
reader. 
He is part of a very popular band (One 
Direction) extremely popular with teenage 
girls so having him on the cover can attract 
the core audience as well as passers by. What 
is interesting is how the magazine only has 
one member as opposed to the whole band, 
however they actually have produced five 
different front covers including this one with 
each member and his story on. They are 
encouraging their target audience to buy 
them all or as they call it “collect”. This can 
show the magazine going the extra mile to 
satisfy their target audience. Also it may have 
been that having a long shot of the band 
would mean that the female audience 
wouldn’t be able to have a proper look at 
their idols. Therefore the solution is doing separate 
copies! 
Main Coverline 
Footer explaining some of the 
content which are free posters of 
stars (mostly males for the female 
audience). Its sort of like a 
covermount. 
Cover lines, including features on fashion, beauty 
and also about boys, dealing with bullies and the X 
Factor, all of which are very key elements in the 
target audiences lives. 
There are supplementary images 
used which are crucial for this 
age group as they are attracted 
to an image led magazine. 
The pop of yellow in the flasher and in the “poster 
perfection” lexis adds variety, links to the happiness 
the audience feel when they see the magazine and 
its content and draws the readers eye to what the 
magazine are selling this month. Including that its a 
“The Boy Band Issue” which suits the young female 
audience. 
Rule of thirds used creating a smart and 
modern layout which can reflect the 
content and the audience 
Liam, on the cover looks quite casual and can create a 
relaxed feel to the magazine that appeals to the 
audience who want a fun and informative magazine that 
entertains and is not too serious even though its about 
music which is a discipline. Similarly the background is 
simple making the cover star , the supplementary 
images and the copy stand out. 
The yellow arrow can link to the band 
(One Direction) as an arrow can 
denote direction.

  • 3. Bold masthead, use of black shadow makes it stand out more attracting the reader. Header: Mentioning of a free gift inside attracts the target audience, the fact they are cinema tickets suggests this magazine is for a younger audience the word ‘free’ is written in yellow in order to stand out and ‘cinema tickets’ is also written in a different colour to grab the readers attention and against the pink background this works really well. Use of flasher: attracts readers attention the word ‘new’ is written in yellow in order to stand out and against the pink background it works well House style/colour scheme is pink yellow white and blue, bright colours which stand out these are typically girly colours so this suggests the magazine is targeted at young girls Main image is of a well known boy pop band, this suggests that is aimed at younger aged people into pop music and more likely to be females. Coverlines: ‘soap boys’ written in bubbly white font to grab the readers attention and the use of yellow font for ‘stripped’ helps to draw the reader in more, the use of cheesy language again suggests this magazine is for a young audience and as it is on about boys ‘stripping’ it would be fair to say this magazine is targe -ted more at females Pull quote- written in white bubbly font in order to stand out, Footer: number 7 is yellow in again helps us to realise this mag order to stand out along with is targeted at a younger age group the white bubbly text against as language is informal/direct and pink background makes it cheesy more eye-catching Barcode/date/issue no. Logo
  • 4. This magazine is targeted at girls aged 11-14, with a strong interest in pop music, male and female celebrities, gossip, TV shows, films and make-up etc we know this because.. Main cover line: use of language here is cheesy and informal so therefore suggests it is aimed at younger people, the topic being discussed being cringes and kissing would lead us further to believe that it is aimed at females, we can also see this through the choice of colour being girly pinks/whites. Images: main image is of a well known boy band associated with pop and on the front cover pop artists are featured e.g. Kelly Clarkson and girls aloud these artists/bands are from the pop genre Layout: is simple and easy to follow, with the rule of thirds being used. The simplicity of the layout again suggests it is for a younger target audience Coverlines: ‘314’ is written in Footer: mentions posters which suggests again that it is for a younger audience, pictures of the posters which are featured inside , attract the target audience. And the bright coloured childlike bubbly outstanding white attracts them Sell line: ‘bursting with backstage gossip’ this suggests it is for a young female audience as they are more likely to be interested in gossip Use of bright eye catching feminine colours attract the target audience too and therefore suggests someone interested in pop music would read this magazine as it is clearly from the pop genre. And the use of well known artists/bands being on the front would attract them Language used: ‘you’ll look like a star’ this attracts the reader making them believe that by buying this magazine it will help them to achieve a ‘star like’ look. This also reinforces the idea that the reader of this magazine would be interested in fashion yellow in order to stand out and the ‘and’ symbol is too, this is done to Grab the readers attention emphasise that there is even more prizes to be won etc and this attracts the target audience. This again suggests it is aimed at a younger audience and as it mentions ‘party outfit's we know it is targeted more at females
  • 5. We love Pop is a new monthly music magazine which launched in September 2011. Each issue contains 68 pages and its target audience is teenage girls aged between 13-15 years old. Egmont saw a gap in the market after another pop music magazine ended called Smash hits in 2006. Smash Hits had a similar target audience to the now audience of We Love Pop and therefore when they closed there was a gap to fill for the benefit of this age group. The reason the magazine stopped was due to social media and websites gaining in popularity. But ironically it was social media at their disposal that helped to launch successfully We Love Pop and similarly they have Facebook and Twitter pages as well as a website in order to provide access all areas to the latest music. We Love Pop is published by Egmont UK and has circulation figures of around 115,000. The typical content of a We Love Pop issue are articles on artists/bands, interviews, features on film, fashion, technology, and beauty and advertisements from companies also aiming at the teen audience such as Universal Music, Boohoo and So Fragrances.

  • 6. Price/barcode/ issue number/ link to webiste/ name of publsiher The masthead looks bold, bright and quirky as it is slanted and the black and orange are strong colours that stand out. Black normally has quite negative connotations however here it could simply be used to make the masthead literally “pop”. Similarly the neon orange has connotations of happiness and energy which sparks from the colours used to make it (red and yellow). This could be a representation of the young teen audience. Orange also has connotations of heat which could link to how the young female audience find the cover male “hot”. Flasher in the black and orange creates a house style and attracts the target audience to the fact its a new magazine. It being new can perhaps make the audience feel they are getting not only the latest gossip but the newest magazine, hot off the press. Medium Close up of a male looking flirtatious and suggestive but in a “watershed” way due to the audience only being 13-15 years old. There is a direct eye contact which pierces through to the reader and create a real intimate feel as its like he is looking at the reader. He is part of a very popular band (One Direction) extremely popular with teenage girls so having him on the cover can attract the core audience as well as passers by. What is interesting is how the magazine only has one member as opposed to the whole band, however they actually have produced five different front covers including this one with each member and his story on. They are encouraging their target audience to buy them all or as they call it “collect”. This can show the magazine going the extra mile to satisfy their target audience. Also it may have been that having a long shot of the band would mean that the female audience wouldn’t be able to have a proper look at their idols. Therefore the solution is doing separate copies! Main Coverline Footer explaining some of the content which are free posters of stars (mostly males for the female audience). Its sort of like a covermount. Cover lines, including features on fashion, beauty and also about boys, dealing with bullies and the X Factor, all of which are very key elements in the target audiences lives. There are supplementary images used which are crucial for this age group as they are attracted to an image led magazine. The pop of yellow in the flasher and in the “poster perfection” lexis adds variety, links to the happiness the audience feel when they see the magazine and its content and draws the readers eye to what the magazine are selling this month. Including that its a “The Boy Band Issue” which suits the young female audience. Rule of thirds used creating a smart and modern layout which can reflect the content and the audience Liam, on the cover looks quite casual and can create a relaxed feel to the magazine that appeals to the audience who want a fun and informative magazine that entertains and is not too serious even though its about music which is a discipline. Similarly the background is simple making the cover star , the supplementary images and the copy stand out. The yellow arrow can link to the band (One Direction) as an arrow can denote direction.
