Joke’s on you, brands, I’ve become wise to your tricks.
For this music magazine cover I have set out to analyse in depth the audience and how the cover/content relates to said audience. What I inferred from this specific cover and what several studies have told me was the main audience was female millenials. From this I went to discuss what the Font, colour Pallette, Images shown and language used says in relation to this audience and how it’s particular use was relevant. I also went in further to analyse other interests that the audience may be interested in. I generally came up with very mainstream, celebrity, drama related content, using this knowledge it was clear the magazine had similar subject areas. This all blends together nicely and makes the magazine really appeal to the demographic.
This said, in my own magazine I should consider what demographic my magazine is going to be appealing to. Consider how relevant the content and front page are to them. After all, who’s going to be interested in a magazine that appeals to no one? Things like font should represent genre, the colour pallette to represent both artist and reader alike, images utilising mise-en-scene to convey a narrative, language that may appeal to my audience and make it more personal.
