Double Page Spread Analysis

Music Magazine Double Page Spread Analysis

One whole page filled with un justified text in three columns. The first letter, in a times font, takes up four or fives lines to indent the text and bring the eye to the start of the article. One whole page filled with image. Shows the band in a natural pose. Quite cheerful which reflects the mood of the article. Bordered pull quote. The text is serif which differs from the sans serif font of the main article. Mixture of images and text. The four images down the left hand side resemble a comic strip timeline which keeps it fun and fresh. This is a serious article about the band and their music. The studio shot image is very simple and the article colour scheme of black, white and brown and pull quote borders is very conserved as well as the use of a lot of text.

Double page spread is made up of one large image. Very large pull quote with emphasis on words which might attract young male readers because they represent the content of the article. The image represents the band as fun and funky. Only two of the band members are looking at the camera which makes it look quite casual. This layout shows the article is going to be light hearted and possibly more about the band rather than the music which can be gathered from the pull quote. This isn’t about serious music. The first paragraph is large and bold to draw the eye. The first letter of the article is large to indent and bring the eye to the start and is a different font to the rest. Relatively small amount of text in a small sized font.

Article title stamped haphazardly across the picture to make it look interesting. The dark on light makes it stand out and the red and black colours match the main image. Although the image takes up most of the page it has been lightened on the left to bring out the main figure and the article. Main article in the form of an interview. Questions and names of the people answering questions are bolder. This interview technique of just writing questions and answers is easier to read because it is not one long article which may appeal to more people. A main image which takes up two thirds of the double page spread. It is a live shot showing what bands do best; playing their music. Two studio shot images representing the bands as moody and dark. The colours are dim and dark and the bands pose without smiles. Pull quote which only just stands out from the images. Nothing fancy with a simple black background and sans serif font.

Similar page titles. The double page spreads have all been carefully laid out to represent the band and the article. ‘Kerrang’ have almost sacrificed their house style to be true to the bands. They are all very individual articles within the magazine, especially the Pearl Jam article which has the more conserved look to it with nothing much to link it to the magazine. The other two articles have page titles in the same style which links them together. The ‘Kerrang Week of Rock’ article seems to be the one article which really represents the magazine.
