This is my prezi presentation for my first question for my media evaluation.
I have created a voice recording explaining why my magazine is the way it is, explaining things such as the colour scheme in relation to my target auidence.
I have uploaded a document to scribid.
The main auidence for my media product is fans of indie music, fans of other indie magazines such as NME or Q will also be attracted to my magazine. It might also attract people who have a strong interest for music or just want to know whats going on in the indie scene.

This is the very first screen grab of my double page spread, firstly, I added the picture of the band 'Dear Believer' and placed it in the middle of the pages, I did this because this is what some indie magazines do, so the reader knows that there is another page to the 'double page spread'. I have also added the title INTRO to my double page spread, I have added the title in the same font as the font on the front cover so the reader recognised the title and links the two together. I have also added some other text to make the magazine look more believable and professional.
In this next screen shot I have added all the interview, I have followed the guidelines as this will make my double page spread more professional looking and it will be simpler to read. I have also added a quote from the band, this will entice the reader to read my magazine as the quote anchors the reader as this makes the double page spread look exciting and interesting. I have also added a title 'Dear Believer' I have made this
In this screen grab I have completely changed my double page spread, firstly, I have changed the background to the picture of the band 'Dear Believer' I have done this because I believe and think that this makes it seem more effective and it makes the picture look more professional and it adds effect and impact to the double page spread. I have also changed the colour of the text from black to white. I have done this because black didn't stand out as much as white. The last change that I have made is that I have added all the band members names and the instrument that they play so the reader would know who is talking throughout the text.
In this screen grab I have changed the text back to black as I believed although white stood out more it matched the title. I have also changed the title to 'Are you a Believer?' I have done this because this makes the reader think more about the text and other magazines also use puns as their title as this entices the reader. I also changed the text under the picture to black as purple was a random colour and this didn't match the rest of my double page spread.
This is the screen shot of my double page spread with just a few adjustments. Firstly, I have changed the writing under the band. I have changed this to just their name, I have done this because I think this stands out more and it is easier to read, and it also mentions in the artical what instrument each band memeber plays. Also I have changed the first letter of the word of my interview I have changed it to a drop capital as I think this makes the double page spread more believable.
This is my first screen shot of my contents page, firstly I uploaded a picture and added information underneath, the font that I have used for this connotes indie, that is what i believe. Moreover, I have added the heading for the feature articles, I have also added blue rectangle to go under the heading, I have done this so people can relate the blue from the front cover to the contents page. I also believe that the blue looks extremely eye catching.
The next screen shot shows that I have uploaded and placed all the pictures, moreover, I have also added all the infomation for the contents page. I have added another blue rectangle to the regular content as this looks more effective if they both have blue rectangles under them. I have also added all the numbers on the pictures as this will make the contents page look more attractive.
This is the final screen shot of my contents page in quark, since the last screen shot I have changed the 'Feature Articals' and the 'Regular Content' from black to white as I believe that it stood out more against the blue.
