How does your media product represent particularsocial groups?
This is the image I decided to you use for my front cover. I
chose to use this image as I felt it would appeal better to
my target audience. The way each band member is dressed
shows their own style – I think this is good way to show
their individuality within the group.
The fact that three out of the four band members are
looking into the camera shows how I chose the challenge
convention. I feel that the picture shows how laid back they
are – and the way the middle band member is standing
shows a sense of informality.
I picked Connor and Luke to wear a checked shirt as I feel
that it appeals to the target audience, this is because of the
type of clothing people wear at the moment (It shows that
they are ‘on trend’
According to Perkins “stereotypes are not simple” therefore
I made the choice to incorporate another 4 original images
on the contents page. I hoped to represent different aspects
of young males, and how they want to be seen.
The photograph showing Patrick wearing a hoodie shows a
lower class/ urban style, whereas the striped t-shirt portrays
quite a smart (upper class) look and the pose indicates he
cares about his image also how others see him.
The picture with the hand gesture signifies a sense of
privacy and represents how some young people don’t want
their face made public.
According to Dyer ‘A star is an image’ therefore, when
making my DPS I chose to try and re-create an Indie band
image. Although by doing this I am stereotyping, I think
that it has still worked well.
The way each member has their hands in their pockets
shows a casual theme, and a laid back atmosphere. Their
facial expression is something that you see in most bands –
a type of serious/casual/intriguing face.
These are two more
photographs which I also, in a
way, stereotyped. The way
they are posing is very similar
to the way most artists do
today e.g. the way Liam is
looking away from the camera
and the way James is looking
into the camera but also
holding up his guitar – showing
Front cover: fonts, languageand register.
On my front cover I have used Pugs and puffs such as
the ones I have screen grabbed.
The main font I used was Calibri (Body) I used this as I
believe it looked more formal than most other fonts
and most presentable(for a magazine).
I did not use any ‘bad’ language (such as swear words)
on my cover as I did not consider doing so. If I was to
re-create my front cover I would consider it since it is
the type of language that may appeal to my target
Contents: fonts, language and register.
Again, I have use Calibri (Body) as my main font type to keep
the house style.
I have not used any ‘bad’ language on my contents and if I
was to make it again I would not consider doing so, this is
because I believe that the contents page should be more
formal than the other pages.
I really liked the idea of using the red text on the left as a
subheading and then an explanation beneath it, I thought
that this looks nice and eye-catching – I also like it when
other magazines use this style.
I have used a range of different font size to draw the
audience to different sections, it also stops the page from
At the top of the page I have advertised YouTube, Facebook,
Twitter and Faab. By doing this it also broadens their
audience and users, as well as my own.
DPS: fonts, language and register.
The fonts on the DPS are the same as the font on the
cover. I have used Calibri (body) this is to keep and
emphasise the house style of my magazine.
I used a quote from the interview with Liam on the
right side of the page. I used purple for this to also
emphasise house style – I used this quote as I think it
seems quite intriguing, I believe it shows the ‘softer’
side of the band member and from my own experience
of reading magazines – whilst looking at interviews or
life stories the quote is always the first thing that you
see since it is larger and stands out. It also gives a taster
of what to expect from the interview.
I have used a text wrap next to each members head, I
think this looks nice and is also a reminder to their
This symbol suggests to the
read to continue onto the
At the start of the sentence I have used a larger letter (Typography) – this is to draw the
reader to that particular section. It is also something that most magazines do, therefore I
decided to do it.
Front cover: colours and graphics.
On my cover I have tried to keep the same house style
and tried to stick with one main colour – which was
I took the purple colour from Liam Broughton’s T-shirt. I
thought this colour worked well, it doesn’t look childish
and it is not girly. I originally considered using red as my
house style but I soon changed my mind since I did not
believe it looked as presentable or as nice.
The hardest part I found when making the front cover
was cutting out the photograph. I found it hard to cut
out the photo but also make it look realistic (as if they
were actually stood in front of that back ground. I found
that if I rushed it I ended up cutting off parts of peoples
bodies – therefore I had to take my time to get it just
Contents: colours and graphics.
For this page I continued the house style (purple) – I put
purple onto each page, therefore they all had a clear
I again used the colour from Liam’s top to create banners and
I am happy with the pictures I have on this page as I feel that
they are similar to what you would get in a normal magazine.
I like the photo I have taken of Peaceful Panic as I caught
them off-guard therefore they are acting natural.
I asked Oliver to wear quite dark colours, this is because not
all celebrities wear bright colours 24/7 and I wanted the
photographs to look natural .
DPS: Front colours and graphics.
On this page I have slightly changed the colours, I have
still used purple – but not as much.
The main colour for this page is red, I decided to use
red as I thought I looked nice and fit the DPS nicely.
I took the red from Connor Petch’s shirt therefore it
still links with the band.
If I was to change something on this page I think I
would change the picture. Although I like the picture I
do not think it was taken as well as it could be. I feel
that Luke is too far forward making him, compared to
the other members, a lot taller. I think it would look
better if all the members were the same height.
