The title of this front over is large and bold as most are, but the colour is the same colour as the background, therefore a shadow has been added to the text in order for it to be seen.
This medium close-up of the model is the main focus of the front cover. The model is looking directly at the audience, looking serious yet seductive.
This magazine cover is very simple yet persuading, due to the little amount of information it makes the audience want to know more about the model.
The small sentence gives away only brief information, the models name and what the magazine is actually about; fashion. This little insight attracts those who are into fashion.
Title is bright and bold at the top of the page, therefore it is one of the first things the audience will see, it doesn't’t cover any of the models face.
Colours around the eyes are bright but do not distract the attention to the eyes and how powerful they are, the colours also link to the title.
The close up of the model is the main focus of the magazine, the model is not looking directly into the camera, this shows secretiveness.

The title of the magazine is bold, although it is not very large compared to other magazines I have analysed. The font is very light just as the background colour is fairly light.
The colours used give the magazine a natural and calming look. However, the model is biting his t-shirt suggesting anger and tension.
Al colours used on this front cover, including what the model is wearing, background colour and font colour gives this page a natural look and feel.
The quote used gives the audience a small insight to what the magazine will be like, the use of the word rock star and the title show the audience that the genre of music is rock and indie. Although, this front cover doesn’t look like a ‘typical’ rock and indie magazine, therefore this intrigues the people to purchase the magazine.

The front cover of this magazine is extremely neat, everything has its place and flows well. There is a clear use of the ‘Z’ technique.
The model is starring straight at the audience and doesn’t have much expression on her face, therefore it is difficult to know how the model is feeling, and the hat she is wearing shadows her eyes, this makes the front cover look secretive, intriguing the audience to open the magazine.
These two words are extremely powerful, the use of the word ‘force’ shows strength of fashion. The colour links and goes well with the rest of the front cover, although the font is completely different to the title, the title is formal and classy where as the sell line is quite original and bold, this completely changes the feeling of the magazine, showing that the magazine is in fact classy, although there is still originality there.
The contents page usually has a title stating that it is a contents page, and is almost always at the top of the page. The font is large, bold, and white on a black background in order to stand out.
The main image is linked to the main article, this it to highlight to the audience which page the main article is on.

Even though this is the contents page, the actual contents is small and pushed over to the corner because the main focus is the model, she over powers contents on a contents page.
The title of the page is surprising not that large, or bold. It is a medium size and just blends in with the rest of the page and doesn’t actually stand out on its own.

The image looks as if they are having fun by laughing, although there is a clear power structure in the band. The band member at the front has the most power over the rest of the band members, he also has the biggest smile on his face and is laughing the most, we could say he is the leader and top of the hierarchy. This continues, the order they are standing is the order of power, the one most to the back is least powerful.
The word ‘now’ in the title is extremely big, drawing the eye to the word encourages the audience to read the article now.
Subtitle separates the main title and the text, giving slight information of what the article will be about.
This magazine decided to use an article rather than an interview, this is rather interesting because most music magazines tend to interview their models but this magazine has gone for a different approach, this could be in order to be different and stand out of it may have just been the best way of writing.
