A New Improved Contents Page

Click here to preview my second draft of my contents page:


What has changed:

  • I have added in more catchy captions to draw my target audience in
  • Added the social handles for a variety of platforms
  • Added a photo of ‘Tommy‘ so the viewers understand who I am speaking about
  • I made the fonts for the captions smaller and not in block capitals
  • I have added lines between the captions to split them up

What Can I improve on?:

  • Fixing the lines between the captions so they don’t go out of the triangle
  • Make the numbers on the bottom section in bold as I haven’t done this yet

In the audio clip above is verbal feedback given to me by one of my fellow peers, I have asked them the following questions:

  • How does the contents page work in tandem with the front cover?
  • Is the font/typeface consistent with the front cover?
  • What genre of music is the contents page featuring?
  • Describe the images of the stars using adjectives.
  • Which cover-lines tempt the audience to read on and which ones stand out and why?
  • How do the cover-lines reflect a music magazine? If they don’t,  which ones need to be adapted?
  • What aspects do you consider conventional or unconventional (page numbers, inserts, captions, catchy cover lines, editors comment?)


Summary of the feedback given:

  • The blue colour scheme works throughout and has a housetyle
  • The captions are the same as the cover lines which provide a housestyle
  • Most of them reflect the genre of Pop, however ‘How to improve your twitter feed’ isn’t music based. To improve this add a celebrity such as Ariana Grande saying how you can improve your feed.
  • The social media logos need to be smaller, as they are taking focus away from the catchy captions
  • The layout of the content pages is unconventional
