College Magazine Research •

I chose this magazine cover due to the fact it is very simple and isn’t overcrowded like many magazine articles which would turn me off of buying it. It has the main image, the masthead, the main article and the sponsor. It has an artist on the front image who is very popular at this moment in time. The main article and image are related to the best festivals of 2010 which are mostly aimed at students


Examples Of Fonts This font is Sans Serif and is similar to the one I used for the ‘Student’ part of my masthead This font is eXO2 Stencil and looks very edgy and could appeal to the younger audience because it is a lot like graffiti art. This font is Serif. I believe it looks a little bit too formal for my magazine.

Original medium close up image

This is the original image that I used for the front cover. It is an original medium close of my friend, Katheryn smoking and this subject is the lead article for my magazine. The actual cigarette is the main subject of the lead article and is centred to make the audience believe it to be important.
