Questions to apply to my cover

Questions to apply to my cover

1. What 2 conventions have I used & why?

Q. On my magazine I have a celebrity on the cover in this case Kim Kardashian. Doing this I would've hoped to pull people in as she is an idol to alot of people and people would buy my magazine to look like her.

2. What are the effects of my layout, typography, colour choice and language choice?
Q. The layout of my magazine has a asymmetrical balance and orderly placed. The colours i chose on my magazine would appeal to the teenage girl audience because they stand out and are elegant. The typography used, is very attractive to teenage girls, as the title text is curved and elegant which is attractive to women.

3.What issues of representation have i presented?

Q. I have presented Kim kardashian is a classy way and she is with the latest fashions. This then gives an idea to the readers that Kim is always classy and is up with the fame tips. The celebrity or model may not be doing the things the text said and this could be very misleading to the teenage target audience. These issues could be representing the celebrity wrong therefore the audience will not want to buy the magazine and will think badly about the magazine.

Magazine Balances

This magazine is symmetrical because David Beckham is posing and if you were to cut the magazine in half he would look the same on either side     
This magazine has good asymmetrical balance in shape because the detailed shape (Oprahs Hair) is against the dull background 

This magazine is symmetrical because megan fox is posing in a way    
This colour balance of this magazine is asymmetrical because the colours are oppersite (black-white)  
The layout of this magazine is all bunched together around the woman to fit as much in as possible     


This is a good start and you have the basics here. However, this does not have a huge amount of detail and you will need to explain your answer more.
