Codes and conventions of media
magazines
What is a convention?
Conventions:
The rules that are generally understood and
accepted when producing a media text in a
particular genre
What are codes?
One dictionary definition of the word code is
“A system of symbols, letters, or words given certain
meanings, used for delivering messages requiring
secrecy”
So a media text like a magazine has a message that
it wants to communicate to us finally (mainly but
this magazine) and there are certain methods (or
codes) by which it does this. We might say that
codes give a message to particular conventions.
The puff is there to draw
the attention of the readers
“free sound tack cd”. Puffs
are normally in red or
yellow so they can stand
out easily
The magazine’s main
article is about 100
greatest music films ever.
The magazines gives
away information about
the article
The colour scheme is:
white, red and black. Red
is used to make the titles
stand out.
The rule of thirds is used the
divide the page evenly in
three sections. The centre
third is just the main image
and the other two thirds is
filled with texts and a puff
each.
The font of the text is in
different colours which
makes it easier for the
audience to read but it
also makes the
magazine more eye
catching

Could be aimed at younger age group and also
older age group with the different artists.

The masthead “mojo”
is situated behind the
main image so the
magazine must be well
established and are
trying to promote
Dylan instead.
The tagline is the
motto of the
magazine
situated in front
of the masthead
in a different
colour font
The main image is
Dylan. He is looking
straight at the
camera so he is
engaging with the
audience
Dylan is dressed in a
more formal dress
so it looks like he
cares about his
appearance
The barcode is in the
bottom right hand corner
in a bare space with
nothing going on.
Date of issue
Red important
info.

Layout column:
connotes order and
information.
