Media Coursework

One way I followed conventions of a real music magazine was the main image. Although it is placed directly in the middle of the magazine, some magazine have done this, and often makes more space for writing/cover lines. The mise-en-scene of the image also follows the conventions as the shot is a medium long shot. The landscape of my photo fits into the genre as rock magazines are frequently referred to as old dark environments. I think the picture helps the magazine give it a professional feel as the models head is slightly behind the masthead-( which a lot of magazines do, to create space/fill space in) and also portrays my genre well. My cover lines weren't based on any main magazine, but I have seen lots of cover lines based like this on other magazines. Again, as I wanted my magazine to have a minimalistic yet rock vibe. I chose a simple font, and just altered some colours to stand out and brighten up the page and use a drop shadow as if they are coming out of the page. I challenged this form as I only have a limited amount of writing, which most magazines have a lot more.

My contents page challenges the conventions by having a dark background on the contents page, as most have a lighter background to make the text stand out further. I have used the conventions by having a image larger than the other to take up a proportion of the page. This is done in most magazines as it is either the main article or one that will draw the most attention to potential readers. A way I have deviated from a normal design is having a large contents title. Most music magazines have a small title and the rest is mostly other images and text. Another way a challenged the conventions is having a lot of article information. Most magazines are quite minimal with the amount of article information but the contents page I produced challenged that and drove away from normal conventions.

Ways in which I utilised the conventions on the double page spread were including a pull quote, headline, stand first and a drop cap. These are all essential for a magazine double page spread as they make it look professional and entices the reader to read the article. I challenged the conventions by having different coloured text on the Q and A. This is challenging the conventions as it is normal in magazines for the writing to be black and the rest of the article is different colours but I have challenged this so I can make it stand out further. I followed a convention by having one image take up a whole page. I did this so everyone knows it is a double page spread and so there is not loads of free space needing to be used up.
