Double Page SpreadMy main image is a medium shot of my artist ‘Jenna B’, this photo anchors thearticle. It also creates Mise en Scene, as it set in a natural environment. Thisconnotes the fact that Jenna B is finally in her natural environment as a Pop star.Both articles include grab quotes, these pick out an important part of the articlewhich influence the audience to read the whole article not just the quotes thatcatch their eye first. I used Drop Caps in my article to clearly show where thearticle started after the stand first. My stand first gives an introduction to my article,it is in San serif font and a bright colour, to make it separate from the article. Mymain title is also in bright pink, to continue the colours from the front cover andcontents page. Like Top of the Pops I used page numbers, for the audience tonavigate themselves easily through the magazine. I put a photo credit, showingthat I was the photographer at the bottom of my image. This is a typical conventionof a real magazine.
After completing my magazine I asked 20 people in a focus groupquestions about my magazine. The first question was: How much does my Magazine look like a real magazine? Very Similar…. Partly Similar…. Not Similar in any way…. This bar chart shows that 18 out of 20 people that I gave my questionnaire to all think that my magazine ‘Chart’ looks like a real magazine. No one said that it was not similar.
PlanningBefore creating my magazine I went through the process of planning what Iwanted it to look like and who I wanted the magazine to appeal to.Therefore, I drew drafts of the cover, contents page and double page spread.This helped me see what layout would work best and where the images andtext would look most attractive to the audience.
PlanningAnother stage of my planning was looking at existing music magazines andannotating the codes and conventions they had used and which ones were mosteffective. For example, to make my magazine look realistic I knew I had to include abarcode, the price and the date. I also recognised that I should add effects to themasthead and the cover lines, this makes a magazine look more aestheticallypleasing and more professional to the reader.Furthermore, I also created a questionnaire. I handed the questionnaires out to afocus group of 20 people. I asked questions about their favourite genres of music, abit about themselves and where they usually get their music information from. Iused the results to help me decide which genre I would focus on and what I wouldinclude in the magazine to make my audience buy it.
