Magazine Analysis

When creating a magazine we had to consider a number of things, the main thing that we had to do before thinking about creating our own magazine was to research a number of different magazines to ensure our understanding. Jessica and I researched a number of magazines, we did this through going to the shops and purchasing the magazines to gain more understanding of how a magazine is presented to the public and what it actual includes. The research itself took a couple of days to complete as this was the first part of the main task we were able to gather our ideas quickly to what is needed in a magazine and how to present it to the public in the best way possible.

Below is all the research that was conducted, Jessica – my team mate completed her own research but we did compliment each other in what we researched. Some of the research that I completed was also given to Jessica to ensure that we had pretty much the same research otherwise it would be difficult to see what we were trying to create. The magazines that we researched were mainly rock/punk as their isn’t many pop or dance etc magazines available to the public. This is why we decided on a whole to create a pop magazine as there isn’t any around and it would then fill in the missing gap within the market today.

Magazine Research

Now you’ve seen the research that was conducted for the magazine, you can see all the different magazines that we researched to get a better understanding of what we needed to include and how we should portray our own magazine.

Below are magazine analyses that I did to show you my understanding of the magazine, also allowing you to see my understanding of the media techniques and the use of media words used in the correct context.

The final thing that Jessica and I researched were the magazine sales, this was to see how many copies of three different magazines were sold. We researched: Q magazine, NME magazine and Uncut magazine as we couldn’t find a Kerrang! magazine sales. However this gave us an idea of how many copies were sold and an idea of how we need to range our magazine cover to ensure it is both eye catching and interesting to the public eye.
