The contents page for NME and
most other magazine use
images in their contents page.
They do this because it gives
them a better insight as to what
is going to be inside the
magazine. It also highlights
what is interesting about the
magazine and what they are
focussing on. NME have done
this here by putting the lead
singer from The Wombats in the
centre who is recognisable and
readers are probably interested
in. NME have obviously used
text that links to the image and
gives you more of an insight.
Even though there is a lot of
information available on this
contents page, the layout of it
means that it is still clearly
readable for the reader to use
and take in information.
The colours used for this contents page are
very simple and plain. However this works
because it looks more professional and
informative. This also links to the front cover of
the magazine and the genre/style of the
Because NME use so much
information in their contents
page, I feel that i do not want to
use this technique. This is
because they overload it with
information and sometimes you
do not take it all in.
The main tag line ‘INSIDE THIS
WEEK’ does not link to the
masthead on the cover as it is a
completely different font and
colour. This is something that I
am not going to do for my
contents page as I believe it
should be the same theme
throughout the magazine.
NME magazine generally use
indie/fashionable/detailed photographs for
their contents page. This is because it suits
the genre of audience that it aims at. It does
not just focus on one story but a handful of
others so there’s more variety
The title of the magazine Q is
headlined at the top along with
the contents headline. As you
can see they are in a big text
highlighting the fact that they
are important because they are
at the top in big bold text. Q is
also in a red box which follow
the Q logo on the cover
associating the colours red and
white together with black text.
The main column on the
contents page is the features
section, which presents the main
features inside the magazine. It
also has a brief description of
what the feature is about. The
features column uses the colours
red, white and black. The red
banner behind it draws more
attention to the headline.
In the bottom left hand corner there is an every month information
column showing what features they have inside the magazine in
every month’s edition. They have highlighted ‘every month’ with a
large red banner to make the text stand out more and appeal more
eye catching to the customer. There is also a column showing
‘women’s music’ in the magazine.
In the top right hand corner of
the page they have put the date
and the issue number of the
magazine. It is positioned here
because the date needs to be
clearly seen and it blends well
with the colour. Q also used
their website under the date so
that people can easily access the
website of the magazine
The main photo in the picture
dominates the page and is the
largest feature. The gesture of
Adele is very simple but
effective as she is gazing
towards the camera. The photo
takes up most of the page,
which makes sense because it
shows what the magazine is
The layout of the contents
page has different fonts and
different stories in the
magazine and the pictures are
all different sizes probably
depending on how important
the story is. It is unusual but
make the magazine unique.
The heading in the contents
page is big and bold as it is the
title for the page. It also clearly
states the date underneath it
which is important.
The page numbers are in big
bold red font. This makes them
stand out more to readers so
they can clearly see what it says
so it is easier for them to go
NME uses quotes from the
article for important stories in
the magazine. This gives people
a taster of what they are going
to see in the magazine so it
may make them more
interested and make them want
to read on.
They have the other page numbers in small black
font as they are less important compared to the
other main stories.
They are offering a deal for NME
in the bottom right hand corner.
It displays this offer very big and
brightly on the page so that it
stands out and readers are
drawn to it. The writing is bold
and white so that it is eye
popping and matches the rest of
the magazines colour scheme.
Readers may be more inclined to
sign up for the deal because
they would get discount.
