At the start of production for my magazine I made sure my masthead was eye catching just like the ones seen on big branded magazines such as EMI. With my front cover I made sure that my front cover had an unique eye catching image which helped due to my models retro look. I also made sure to highlight artist names to make it eye catching informing reader there is info in this magazine about these artists. A similar method is used in the contents page where I have my model with a much bigger picture to stand out. And finally with my feature article I conformed to what is expected of a double page spread by having one main image Forms And Conventions
Big Bang represents the teenagers of today by standing out with what is new out there such as new trends which is picked up by big name artist; it relates towards the new big thing hence forth the magazine name “Big Bang”. it relates towards teenagers as well as adults it has different styles such as a retro design or funky design it depends on who the main person is on the front cover and which design style suits them best.
The target audience for my magazine would be between both genders and age range from 16 and onwards presumably 16-26. In order to attract my target audience I used a collaboration of color which tied in with the magazine background. I also use a attractive font with a good fusion of a good magazine name “big bang” which attracts people who like big trends or things that are big in the media world
The kind of institutions I would distribute my magazine would probably be in big branded grocery stores such as Tesco,ASDA,corner shops, book shops and other stores that sell magazines. Furthermore I would distribute it to music stores such as virgin mega store and HMV where there is only music consumers.
I found the preliminary task very easy compared to the main task I noticed a big contrast between the preliminary task and the main task in which the main task demanded more in comparison towards the preliminary task which I didn’t put much effort in to but once I got on to the main task I realized some of the preliminary task work would have made my work a bit more less stressful. However the advantage was that I managed to learn more about how to use Photoshop and I enjoyed designing and realized I am actually good at designing magazine design.
BEFOREAFTER I have learnt from feedback that there was numerous problems with my first double page spread I learnt that I needed to change the font as well as the text colour as it was not visible. However this was a problem because no matter what colour I changed it to the background made it hard to se the text so I realized in order for people to see the text properly I had to put it on a new back ground and minimize the picture as you can see.
I have learnt that lighting Is very important in photography I learnt how to cut out the pictures that I had taken on Photoshop. The construction of my magazine helped me to learn more and improve my skills in Photoshop. I also learnt how to fuse my Photoshop pictures in to my word document where I improvised and created my magazine content page seeing as Photoshop is not designed to make a full magazine front cover with multiple images
