Article Idea Development

For my double page spread magazine, I would like to create a classic Q&A article as it is easier to read and is more appealing than a big block of text. I wish to include lots of colour that fits well with my colour scheme and add images from my photoshoot with my model to help my double page spread stand out to my audience to make them want to buy my next issue.

Target For Development

For my target development, I need to place my article in my double page spread and take and place my small images on my magazine to help my magazine look more interesting and eye catching. I also need to add more colour into my magazine which will help my magazine to stand out from the rest when my target audience come to choosing a new stylish magazine.

Production Meeting Agenda for 2nd Photo Shoot


I needed to choose someone in my class to help model for my photoshoot which weren’t busy in another class or off site. I had a meeting with Mary a few days before the photoshoot so she knew what style and character I wanted her to portray in the images, the day before the shoot I made sure Mary knew what costume to bring and what makeup I asked her to do.

Risk Assessment


This is my risk assessment for my photoshoot, even though I will taking my images at school I still need to be aware of the risks involved, like moving cars and the weather.


A New Improved Front Page


draft 2-1bpahok

As you can see in the link above, I have improved my pop music magazine by changing the title to bold and making the space between the letters bigger which fills the top of the page more which can be more eye catching. I also moved my captions and cover line further down the page to make the front cover look less crammed and cluttered, now when I add my captions and the cover line it will look more spaced out which looks more professional. Overall, I prefer my old masthead as I like how it looks against my model and how it fits across the page. Although, in my real front cover I will keep the cover line and captions where I moved them in this second draft as I think it will look better.

Magazine Draft 1


As you can see above, I have created my first draft of my pop music magazine, ‘ChiChi’. I experimented with my magazine testing different colours and fonts to make sure they stuck with my theme of pop music and looked well with my photoshoot images. I am pleased with my overall finished magazine as i think it represents everything ‘ChiChi’ is about, stylish, sleek, classic and popular. Click the link above to see all of my magazine work.



So… How is it going?

My choice of genre (pop music) for my music magazine is represented in different ways. For example, the various different fonts I used, my clolour scheme, mise-en-scene though the images I used of my artist and my location shoots which tie in with mise-en-scene. All these things help create and finish my magazine which is why it was essential for me to include all of them throughout my pop magazine.

Target For Development

In my next draft for my music magazine, I wish to include different fonts to vary my magazine so it doesn’t look as boring. I also wish to add more images and colours to help my magazine more eye catching.
