my questionnaire

in lesson i was told to create a questionnaire in order to help me make my rock magazine so i new what my target audience is looking for.

codes and conventions of a double page spred

in lesson we looked at the codes and conventions of music mags double page spread we found that:


  • main image takes up a page
  • main title/ head lines - bold - unique - short - stands out
  • stand first, small into to article, above article
  • in 3-4 columns
  • by-lines/credits the photographer and writer
  • most of the images look at the camera but not necessary
  • drop quotes made larger
  • font-small-size 11
  • lots of righting
  • artists name high lighted so it stands out
  • image mainly on right
  • simple and consistent colours that match image so that it is - pleasing - organised - stands out and attracts the audience
  • page number - name of mag and web address bottom corner
  • informal mode of address gets the audience to connect to it and gets them to relax when reading it

these are two examples:

evaluation of school mag

My school magazine front cover follows forms and conventions of other existing magazines. This is shown in a couple of ways such as the font  size which is size 11 which is the standard size for smaller cover lines. Also the main title has a different colour box around it so the title is separated from the rest of the magazine and it is also in capitals and bold. None of the cover lines cover the main images face and and the main cover title is bigger then the rest also it is bold with smaller writing under neath to tell you more about the story also the back ground is plain and it sticks to a simple colour scheme.

 my contents page follows the forms and conventions as it is in three columns which have feature articles and regular articles and the main story has the biggest image to show its the main thing in the magazine. also the numbers come before the text.


my school magazine front cover does not follow the forms and conventions as the main title looks very dull and it does not stand out very much. there are not many cover lines which makes the magazine front cover look boring and empty.

my school magazine contents page doesn't follow the forms and conventions as the colour scheme is different to the front cover and it is very empty as there are not many cover lines and it looks boring. and the lay out is all over the place.


the technology's that i used was quark this was a new software i used to make my contents page and i also developed my photo shop skills when i was making my front cover.
