Part 1 : In More Detail

The magazine I am designing is for the pop style of people, these ages between 13 – 17 this will allow me to use a wide range of artists and introduce new and unknown ones that may appeal to the younger teenagers. The magazine will be appealing from the bright theme that will be running throughout each of the pages; the theme will reflect the setting for the photoshoot. The style and thought around the magazine will be different altogether as there isn’t a pop and dance magazine in stores at the moment therefore being fresh and new in the market it will help me fill in the gap which I can do by producing of a new music magazine.

When designing the draft drawings I firstly looked at a number of different front covers, from Kerrang! NME and Q this was able to give me an idea of how different magazine editors and producers set out there own magazine and how I would be able to use that to come up with an idea of my own.

Adding a magazine for younger teenagers will get them back into the public society and bring a better selling point across as they will be introduced into music at a much earlier age allowing them to widen there music skills and interests. However, I have decided to keep the music magazine to a high enough age as other teenagers may enjoy the magazine as well making it an all-rounder age group. Therefore bring a better show of music and a wider range of artists and bands.

These results will be shown in charts or tables showing the information and telling me what I should include in the magazine and what would sell and appeal to the audience more.

The other research I carried out was from looking and analysing other music magazines such as Kerrang! Q and NME etc.

When producing my own music magazine I will take into account the cover star and how they are presented and positioned, the title and whether it will be in the foreground or big and bold, standing our of the page at the reader. If I get the correct layout, whether it will be different to other magazines or the same with a bit of a newer style, my magazine should make an impact grabbing young teenager’s eyes.

When I looked at Kerrang! I saw many different advertisements from phones to music CD’s that are available from HMV. This gave me an idea of what kind of advertises BRAD directory do and what advertises I could include in my magazine.

In the music market today there are all sorts of bands and artists available to all ages; we have pop to dance, rock to indie and then also country music. These styles of music keep the business growing and expanding, and also through the making of magazine also helps to advertise them.

If they were included this could potentially have an impact on young teenagers as they would have a wider range of magazines to choose from allowing them to experience each style of music that is available nowadays. This lets the bands be in the eye of the public and helps them to make sure they get well known to everyone.

The magazine I am designing is for the pop genre and style people, aged between 13 – 17 years and hopefully this will allow me to use a wide range of artists and introduce new and unknown ones that may appeal to the younger teenagers. The magazine will be appealing from the bright theme that will be running throughout each of the pages; the theme will reflect the setting for the photoshoot. The style and thought around the magzine will be different altogether as there isn’t a pop or dance magazine in stores at the moment therefore being fresh and new in the market will help me fill in the gap which I can do by producing a new music magazine.
