Questions to apply to my cover
1. By using model on the front cover and the mode of address. by having the model in a pose and facing the camera this shows the target audience that it is directed at them and with the fact that they would know who they are because it i a celebrity. the mode of address links to the reader because it has celebrity information or gossip about situations that people would be interested in because they want to know what it happening in the world.
2. The effects are linked with a lifestyle magazines like key points of big headline, sub headings, model and vibrant colours. the language that I have used is small and simple which give you this idea of breaking news to grab the readers attention. The colours link with the fact that my magazine is directed at younger women who are interested in the celebrity gossip. the colour of the headlines are vibrant and eye-catching red and pink showing a feminine nature. the layout is with bold sub-headings and title trying to draw the attention to those parts. the titles are formed to have a symmetrical layout fit in together which would be appropriate that the model doesn't be covered up. The magazine cover adds a youthful vibe of coloured text and young celebrity models that would be understood and identified instantly.
3. the representation of my work has been shown in key parts such as text, headline, model, colour and background showing what you would expect most from a lifestyle magazine and especially me at my target audience of young women. I have represented information in my work to have a short and drawing attention because it is the short and simple explanations that say a lot or a mystery to find out.
You must be specific in your answers and these answers must explain the effects on the audience.
You must talk about any issues that there are with the representation you have presented. Are all women/men like that? Do all teenage girls relate to those stories?
