Magazine analysis One In this section I have researched into different types of college and university magazines to see which ones I like and why. I chose this magazine because it stood out to me. The font of the mast head is effective because it is red and bold. This entices readers because it stands out. The picture and colours on the magazine look casual which relates to students and how they act. I think that this would make them more likely to pick up the magazine because they can communicate with what is going on.
Magazine analysis two I like this magazine because the central image is unique and tactful. It is really different to the usual student magazine which I think would make people want to pick up the magazine and buy it. I think that the masthead is effective because it is big and simple. This conveys that it is easy to read and to understand as soon as you look at it. Black and red are the main colours which communicates to me that they have kept it simple. Therefore it is more likely that students will remember the magazine because there isnâ€™t loads going on in it.
Examples of different fonts! This is the font I have chosen.
Original medium close up image This is the central image medium close up on the front cover of my magazine. I chose this picture because it looks modern and trendy. I think that it relates to students due to the fact that it is fashionable and up to date. The background it plain and simple which I think is effective because it makes the girl stand out more on the page which was my intention. I think that by choosing this picture it will make more students want to pick up and buy my magazine because it looks trendy.
