Transcript of Magazine Analysis

Masthead example
This is an example of a rock magazine that I found on the internet. I am using this example as it demonstrates the use of colour scheme that I will portray in my magazine of red, white and black.
Cover lines
On this magazine, the cover lines are red, black and white. They have stuck with the colour scheme of the masthead and used different combinations of the three colours to create individual cover lines.
Picture
Selling line
This example magazine doesn't appear to have a selling line. They are the catchphrase or saying that the magazine puts somewhere near the masthead in small font to give the readers something to remember it by, like a slogan.
Rule of thirds
In the picture of Eminem on the cover, it abides by the rule of thirds. His thumb is pointing up along the left vertical line, the big speaker is located in the top right section, Eminem is positioned in the middle column and his shoulders are aline with the top horizontal line.
Magazine Analysis
My masthead
I am using this example as it demonstrates the use of the colour scheme that I will portray in my magazine of red, white and black.
It uses serif font in the title and san serif font in the main body of text and I will also be applying this to my magazine.
The title is located behind the main image, however I feel that I will not be constructing my magazine cover with this technique as I want to get my magazine name of Bandicoot, recognized by my target audience of 16-20 years olds.
These cover lines demonstrate a good example of what I will be creating for my magazine as the combine the three main colours on each topic, making it look fresh and as if I am using different styles each time, this will be beneficial for my magazine as it will reduce the amount of fonts I will have to use.
The example magazine also uses different sized lettering to influence which titles are seen by the readers first and will attract them based on the most attractive subject.
My cover's rule of thirds
My selling line
For my magazine, I will add a selling line to it as I think it can give the magazine an identity. I am yet to think of a selling line for Bandicoot however, I will make sure to create a catchy sentence that connects to the purpose of my magazine.
This is my presentation about magazine analysis and how it links into what I want to achieve with the creation of my rock music magazine.
I will be analyzing a rock magazine
that has aspects of its design that I
will then be linking to my ideas and
how I can incorporate these aspects
into the creation of my rock magazine.
My picture
For the main picture on my magazine I will be using the main band topic of the issue to automatically inform the readers who will be interview for this issue every month without them having to even read it. This will attract the audience I am targeting as it will be of interest to them and they will want to buy it to find out more.
This example magazine uses the main article character as the front image to immediately inform the readers who the main article is focused on in this issue. They also made sure that his clothing matched the colour theme which makes the magazine cover flow. They have also incorporated that the man is looking at the camera to give an extra diegetic gaze that makes the reader feel drawn towards the magazine.
My cover lines
When laying out where the content of my front cover will be, I will apply the rule of thirds to ensure my magazine looks professional and well put together. I will use the lines as guides to fit each piece of content the cover on without it looking tacky or unplanned.
This section of analysis is about the front
cover of a rock magazine.
Colour scheme
This is an example of a rock magazine contents page that I found on the internet. I am using this example as it demonstrates the use of colour scheme that I will portray in my magazine of red, white and black.
My colour scheme
I am using this example as it demonstrates the use of the colour scheme that I will portray in the contents page of my magazine of red, white and black.
It uses serif font in the title, numbers and text but maintains a simple San serif style for the topic titles.
Picture
On this magazine contents page, the picture isn't of a person, it's used as a representative image to put across a message. However, it still abides by the colour scheme and fits in well with the theme of the contents page.
My picture
My design
This contents page used a simple design with a clear white back ground with red and black text colour.
The image is located to the left and the text kept to the right hand side of the page.
The heading is clear and bold and the issue just above it, in red.
The yo yo string is on the left vertical line and the main part of the yo yo is in the bottom left grid box.
The gap between the contents text is placed on the right vertical line.
This spreads out the information and makes the text clear for the readers to understand.
My cover's rule of thirds
This example magazine doesn't appear to have a selling line. They are the catchphrase or saying that the magazine puts somewhere near the masthead in small font to give the readers something to remember it by, like a slogan.
My selling line
For my magazine, I will add a selling line to it as I think it can give the magazine an identity. I am yet to think of a selling line for Bandicoot however, I will make sure to create a catchy sentence that connects to the purpose of my magazine.
This image is a good representative in the sense that I want to keep the colour scheme flowing with just the colours of red, black and white. However, the image I will use in my contents page will be of the band members or of some relevance to the magazine.
When designing the layout of my contents page I will be applying the rule of thirds to ensure my magazine looks professional and well put together. I will use the lines as guides to fit each piece of content the cover on without it looking tacky or unplanned. This will also make sure I include every piece of information that needs to be in the contents page.
I am now going to analysis the contents page of a magazine. I will be stating how I can link each aspect of the contents page to the creation of my own for my rock magazine and I can say whether or not an idea has been used effectively.

My magazine contents page will have more on the front and not be as empty.
