Music magazine article analysis

This is my analysis of a music magazine article. I have done this in order of understanding how to lay out an article and the type of content that needs to be included. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article and I will probably use some of the same concepts in my final magazine article.

Final mag contents page stage 1

This is my first stage at my final magazine contents page. I am very pleased so far, as I have the title in the my desired style and two images. The title I believe is original and I am pleased with it. My images show 2 rock stars one of which is holding an electric guitar. So far, I feel that this is realistic and I am pleased with my effort.

Sketch of contents page

This is a sketch of how I would like my final contents page to look like. I am particularly pleased with my title, as it is original and very creative. I am going to put 4 images of the same person under the title and I am then going to include quite a lot of text with page numbers and possibly 1 more image nearer the bottom.

Final mag front cover 3

This is the initial stage of my final magazine front cover. I have included my final title ‘Amphasis’, my tagline and an image of a person wearing a leather jacket, who is imitating a rock star. I am very pleased so far and I will continue the work right away.

High Hill cover analysis

Posted: October 8, 2012 in Uncategorized


This example of High Hill magazine is an example magazine cover we studied in class. The purpose of this, is to familiarise ourselves with the key media terminology. I have briefly annotated some of the key aspects of the magazine cover. For example, I have discovered callouts, column inch and heading/sub-heading. The images placed at the bottom, are placed on a ladder slide. The purpose of this, is to order the images and present them well. This type of slide looks professional. ¬†Additionally, the colour scheme is red, yellow, black and white. The purpose of this, is to allow the colours to contrast but by using only a few colours, the page doesn’t become overwhelmed with different colours.
