How does magazine represent particular social groups? I believe that 'FLEX' represents teenagers today because a lot of teenagers are interested in RnB and Hip-Hop. 'FLEX' brings together two contrasting yet similar representation of social groups.
The way in which my magazine uses develop or challenge forms and convections of real music magazines? Looking at my forms and convections my cover doesn't have a lot of advertisement but instead it focuses more on the design and the specific articles in the magazine. This gives my magazine its own look and originality whilst still following guidelines such as my colour scheme, which is kept throughout.
*Institution.. What kind of institution might distribute your magazine and why? The kind of institution I would distribute my magazine would probably be big supermarket shops, corner shops, and other shops that sell magazines. Also I would like if it would be distributed in shops such as Nike town, this is because teenagers mostly shop at these kind of stores and also it is not out of reach because Nike town is in Oxford street, where many teenagers go to shop even adults.
*Target audience.. Who would be the target audience for my magazine? My target audience as stated in my rational would be teenagers. [people around my age and above]
*Attract/Audience.. How I attracted my audience/addressed my audience I attracted my audience with a big red noticeable masthead, and also with a front cover eye catching model, and an interesting looking contents page and a interesting looking article. I addressed my audience with a double page spread.
*Comparison between preliminary and main task.. Looking back at my school magazine cover, between creating that and creating my music cover. How did the school magazine cover help? Looking back at my school magazine cover, between creating that and creating my magazine cover help? The school magazine helped me get ready for the main task. It made me realise how much work I would have to do and how enjoyable it would be actually making my own music magazine. Also because I designed my preliminary task half halfheartedly, I had to work even harder on my main task.
*Technical/construction issue.. What have you learnt about the technology from the process of constructing your magazine? I learnt that LIGHTING is very important when photographing no matter how good the camera is. I thought because I used a good camera it would be easy to edit, but I found that dark skinned people look dark anyway. Also I found it challenging cutting out my pictures that I had taken, I had to get the hang of it before it started to go right. The construction of my magazine helped me improve in my Photoshop skills.
