My Draft Feature Article


Kita is from a very well off family and has been brought up in luxury. Amber on the other hand has not been as lucky with her upbringing which has definitely inspired her to do her best with her career now and also inspired all her fans. The two recently have only just resolved their problems with each other and made some beautiful music as a result of this. 

Around March 2019, news broke out about the feud of Amber and Kita with the well known star, Jack. Amber tells us how heartbroken as her and Jack were dating when the news broke out that Kita and Jack went on a romantic getaway to Paris! Both the stars had a twitter feud and everything between the 2 got very heated and the stars completely cut off all friendship between them as they wanted to just get on with their work with no distractions.  

Amber threw some shade at Kita which she then replied with a nasty comment which led to upsetting Amber and her fan.

Throughout the whole rough patch, Jack was keeping things quiet and we didn’t hear much from him, but we could all tell he was feeling remorse for the actions he made from cheating on amber with one Kita.

Amber and Kita tell us that its was around a year later that they had troubles but they decided to come together and show their strength as a whole and little did they know that this was the beginning of a beautiful partnership together and to come back at Jack as some of the songs on the album called “Explanation”  They told us that their album release date is April 15th and the two both are overjoyed with the results of this album.


My targets for development:

  • Need to check over my article properly.
  • Add a stand first.

So… How is it going?

Transferable skills

Through the production of my magazine I have learnt many transferable skills.

Communication: When producing my media i needed to make sure my communication with my models to make sure I am organised and prepared for my shoot and have everything we need. Another communication that helped me was getting feedback from my peers and teacher as this tells me what and where I need to improve on in my magazine.

Research: Research has helped me so much as through this, I have learnt who my target audience so there I can therefore base my adverts on the research I have concluded and what fits my magazine the best. This research has helped my to find out everything about the hip hop genre.

Leadership and being Organised: Through the production of my magazine I have gained lots of leadership when trying to organise my models and to produce exactly what I want and tell them exactly what I want them to do for the perfect outcome and to be organised is vital because if everything is not perfect and organised properly then the shoot wouldn’t go as planned and would make the magazine not go as well as I would hope for.

Design Skills 2

Throughout the production of my magazine, my design skills have definitely improved drastically and made me more comfortable with indesign and photoshop.

Skills I have learnt

  • To make sure the colours I used were the same I use the eyedropper tool when allows me to click on the colour on the page then use that colour elsewhere even if its a shape or text.
  • When adding text throughout my magazine that I want to make an impact and be seen, I use the drop shadow tool which creates a subtle but effective look on the text.
  • To make my pug I used the ellipse tool but then added different point on it and made a unique shape of my own.
  • To place photos on my magazine I would use the rectangle frame tool as well as the ellipse frame tool to correctly place the image when I could then proceed to reshaping the image.

The production techniques I have learnt

  • I have learnt how to portray my magazine perfectly for my target audience.
  • Expanded my overall understanding of production and designing a magazine.

What went well

  • I was really happy how my front page and contents page turned out as I used the best design skills in these two pages.
  • I liked how i stuck to the main colour of red throughout the magazine.
  • I was happy with all the images I used.

Even better if…

  • I would have adapted my contents page slightly as compared to the other pages, it doesn’t match the theme that well.
  • I would have spent more time on my Double Page Spread as I don’t like the colours I used in these pages and I think it is too dark and also too simple with places that look incomplete.

A New Improved Feature Article

This is my new improved article that I will be including into my DPS


Amber and Kita collaborate. The two biggest stars join together to release the biggest hit this year following their feud around this time last year, the two come together and tell us some exclusive gossip.

Kita is from a very well off family and has been brought up in luxury. Amber on the other hand has not been as lucky with her upbringing which has definitely inspired her to do her best with her career now and also inspired all her fans.

The Improvements I made:

  • I added a stand first which makes it stand out more, I’ve also change the colour of the writing so it matches the rest of my DPS.
  • I checked over my spelling and the whole article to see if it makes sense.
  • Checked capital letters were all in the right place and my punctuation was perfect.

My target is to now add this in to my final DPS draft hopefully and goes into my DPS well. Now my that my article is complete this will show my DPS in full and it completed.
