To improves my DPS I need to:
- It needs to be proof read
- Masthead needs to be in a different font
- Add in the article
- change the colour of some of the text
- the pages need numbers
This a collection of contact sheets from the second shoot we did that took place in town, i feel i have gathered a good amount of picture including different places and angles. I particularly like the ones of my model by the steps i feel the setting fits the theme really well with the endearingly grime like background, the pictures in the building i also feel worked particularly well and are quite good background images. I also played with a macro lense witch yielded some nice images such as the Christmas decorations and skulls.
This is the redraft of my article in the second draft i made sure to make it obvious what anarchism is and hoe its fits in politically as this what if someone isn’t quite sure what anarchism is or how it works my article wont alianatee them while still not sounding to redundant to any season punk or anarchist.
I decided to also lay off the government and focus more on society as i feel contextually that makes more sense and the topics mentioned feel more as a result of society than a tyrannical government.
I also added some statistics to give the article a bit more structure and substance to my article, its allot easier to take away something from an article if instead of opinions its hard facts and statistics.
My mission statement for my magazine is ”we make music for people who listen” this could be communicated as its a music enthusiasts magazine for music enthusiasts, compared to pop witch is usually listens too quite passively, my ”brand” would communicate authenticity and a comparable understanding of the genre as if i lived through the punk movement in the 70s. As a result feel my shoot needs to incorporate allot of classic punk elements for instance battle jackets, braces and boots. The setting should also communicate this being grime or dirty like a back ally for instance. I may photograph my start from a lower angle than usual so to make him appear more powerful or with a higher status, i could also incorperate a canted angle to communicate his chaotic vision witch the canted angle has connotations of.
These are the drafts of what i think my contents page should look like, on the left there a more traditional looking contents page. I like the look of it as its simple and readers know exactly how it look it makes scene and is quite familiar. The flip of that is the far right that is slightly more modern, it showers a contents on the side of simple headlines but then a second column containing images (these could be articles from the cover or features or a couple other options).
.The Green on purple needs to be changed(issues for colour blind people)
.Mast head needs to be broken up
.Work on grammar on the double page
.Change colour scheme in contents
.Change mast head type face
.Seems child like
.Change the image of my star with a businessman
This is the first draft of my double page spread and i feel it turned out well, although i feel that the main typeface is a tad to big and could do with being a serif font as it would be easier to read, I also neglected to include page numbers witch would have to be remedied. Although i do like my mast head, i feel the font fits with the theme and the white nicely contrasts with the dark background. I also feel the big red x is a nice addition witch breaks up the image a bit more and makes it allot more visually interesting. The type face could do with a change maybe more bold but also needs proof reading with the obvious addition of the article.
