GENERIC CONVENTIONS OF A STUDENT MAGAZINE
COLOUR SCHEMES Student magazines often include a variety of bright, stand out colours to attract the audiences attention and portray the idea that the magazine is not of a typical ‘boring’ and formal format.
PHOTOGRAPHY The photography within student magazines tends to be of celebrities who are popular within youth, but are posing in some sort of live/ funny/ interesting way. A comical photograph on the front of a student magazine draws the readers in.
WRITING STYLE The headlining fonts used in a student magazine and on the front cover never tend to be the usual boring times new roman. Street like, graffiti and stand out fonts are used to imply that the magazine is for people of a younger generation.
