Language This is a contents page for ‘Q’ magazine may 2008. After looking at other contents pages, this is one is very conventional. The contents page follows the colour scheme red, white and black; this is the same for every issue. They have put two of their headings in a red box. This means that these headings are the same in every issue. The font they have used for this heading makes it stand out, which help the reader identify with it. In this issue they have another heading, ‘women in music’, in italics. This shows that this heading is special for this issue and won’t be included in any others any time soon. The page numbers have been shown in red whereas the text is in black, which follows the colour scheme. The editors have also placed magazine logo in the top left corner, the same as on the front cover, this enabled the reader to feel familiarity with the magazine. Next to the logo they have placed the mast head which reads ‘contents’, this is so that the reader knows what they’re looking at. Besides this, they have placed the issue of the magazine next to the date. This is useful as many people collect magazines. There is also a big picture of singer Adele, which is the first thing you notice when you’ve turned over the page. They have done this because she was probably on the front cover of this issue and readers will want to read her article. They also have another picture in the ‘Q Review‘ of a possible upcoming band which they are writing about. The whole layout and colour scheme fits their target audience, over 25s, and is very conventional. This makes it look very professional and conventional.

Representation: Adele being featured on the front cover fits the ideology that each issue has, high class, maturity, love for music and fun. Each issue looks very professional and conventional, this allows the magazine not to look messy. This is shown by the use of Adele, she has been photographed simply but it is effective and has not been sexualised. This shows that ‘Q’ care about the music not about how they look. This ideology has also been shown in the ‘Q Review’ section. It shows that they are interested into promoting great music and new artists. They also review other things such as books and films, which shows the diversity to the magazine. This is also shown by the magazine not having a specific genre. This allows the magazines to be different each edition but still have a class about them. ‘Q’ is very simple and has a basic layout, but this allows the reader not to be distracted by bright colours and a lot of images. It allows us as readers to focus on what’s important; the music.

Language: The first thing you notice is the A4 picture of hip hop superstar Jay-z, this enforces his superiority. He is shown to be wearing all black with black sunglasses, this shows his authority over the music industry. The black sunglasses also shows that he is hiding something, this could possibly be revealed in the article. The model is also wearing a V neck t shirt, which could connote to his victory in the music industry. There is also a red light shining over half of his face and white on the other side. This could mean that his good and darkness are battling against each other. The red could also represent his troubled past, and the white coming in symbolises how he’s changed. This could also just have been done to look good and match ‘Q’ magazine colour scheme (red, white and black). On the right of the page we see the article about him. We immediately see the red letter ‘J’ which is for his name. ‘Q’ do this quite often on their double page spreads. It enforces who the article is about and their superiority as ‘Q’ usually feature well known acclaimed artists on their front covers and double page spreads. There is a caption above the article which reads, ‘the most exciting people in music’, this shows how well respected he is. They have also used a pull quote on the right before you read the interview, which is very conventional and is designed to ‘pull’ you in. They have also featured page numbers, and larger letters for the beginning of a new paragraph.

Representation Having dedicated an A4 page for an image of Jay-z, signifies his importance to the music industry and to the magazine. This fits with some of the ideologies of the magazine, high class and a love for music, both of which this artist has. The image is a very basic shot and his face is hidden behind sunglasses, this could represent his more vulnerable side, which will become apparent in the article. This is also reinforced with the lighting of red and white, showing his good and bad side. You cannot tell whether the model is looking directly at the audience, this adds some mystery to the artist and the article. This could mean that all this mystery will be solved in the magazine. ‘Q’s’ simplistic layout, also makes it appear that Jay-z is important as he breaking conventions of the magazine by using all colour scheme colours in his A4 image.
