A New Improved 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
