Drawn Design For My Double Page Spread
The image above shows the audience what my original drawn plan of my double page spread was going to be. While creating the double page spread on Photoshop I changed some elements of the way it looked and where some of the conventions where placed. In comparison from my drawn design and my hard copy double page spread instead of having two article text boxes I decided to introduce a third text box. This was due to the fact that my article wouldn’t have fitted in two boxes which meant I had to add a third box in order to make sure my article didn’t look to cramped together thus decreasing its professional look. Another different between my drawn design of my double page spread and my hard copy is the fact that I have also decided to add a new headline at the top of my double page spread. This headline would attract my target audience to purchase the magazine because of the interesting and persuasive text used in order to summaries the article. After researching double page spreads I found that most magazines such as Q, NME and Kerrange all used a headline to summaries their double page spreads and to give the audience an insight as to what the article will be about. These magazines inspired me to add a headline to the top of my double page spread in order to help my double page spread look realistic as well as organised. Lastly, another aspect of my drawn design and actual double page spread is instead of using images in the bottom right hand side of my double page spread I decided to add a pull quote in order to help define the end of the double page spread. I decided while creating my double page spread that images do not suit the two pages because the double page spread looks to overdone. The images also do not have any connections with my article thus meaning they where pointless to have. My pull quote would have increased the conventions I used in my double page spread in order to increase its professional approach and increase the different conventions I used. I decided to make my pull quote memorable and likeable in order to increase my target audience incentives when deciding to purchase MUSICAA magazine again.
