When in the design phase of my magazine I knew what I was going to accomplish with the use of the genre and Images, and I think that knowing what I wanted to create helped me a lot as I knew what I wanted to achieve.

One of the key design skills that I have learnt whilst making my magazine is that you need to have similarities throughout the entire magazine. One way you could do this, and the way I did this was by having a very similar colour scheme and font throughout my front cover, double page spread and contents page. In doing this it has allowed me to create a link throughout the different parts of the magazine.

I also learnt that the images are a very crucial aspect when it comes to portraying the set star image and the genre. The use of Mise-En-Scene to dress the actor as well as facial expression and makeup all has a key part to play into the genre of the magazine.
