Double Page Spread Analysis

  1. 1. Double Page Spread Analysis
  2. 2. On the first page of the double page spread, NME have used a picture of Dizzy Rascal which relates to the picture used on the front cover. The second page of the double page spread has the story of the main feature. The big writing captures the eye of the audience, as well as the crafty phrasing, instead of ‘from rags to riches’ they have written ‘from tags to riches’, so bringing familiarity to the audience reading. The copy is laid out in four columns, the left side of the column is flush. At the bottom of the second page they have also included pictures of objects in relation to the style of the magazine. The third page of the double page spread has a pull quote from the article the audience is reading.
  3. 3. Q magazine have used three pages for the Muse article, two pages are dedicated to the feature article on Muse and the other is a portrait image of the band with their instruments with a red caption. Red correlates with the house style, also used on the contents page and front cover. The first page uses a drop cap to begin with. There are three columns on the first page for the copy. The third page uses only two columns for the copy. The images used on the third are bigger so therefore more important to the audience than say the smaller image used on the first page of the double page spread.
  4. 4. Mixmag has used five pages on covering Annie Mac. The first page in the double page spread has used big writing in type writer style font for the masthead. It takes about half the page and is written in three different colours. The second page is a portrait of Annie Mac, with disco ball light reflected in the studio where she is having her photo shoot. The third page has three columns for the copy. The fourth page is another portrait of Annie Mac, but a close up shot. The fifth page uses four columns.
