Masthead: Vibe magazine use thick bold font for their masthead however I have decided not to go with this font as it was not consistent with the rest of the conventions in my magazine. As the rest of the conventions of my magazine have a calming effect I decided it would not had been a good idea to use a thick font for my Masthead. As well as that, it was important for me to consider that Vibe magazine were reflecting back on Hip pop as well R&B so therefore the thick bold font was reflective of their genre, however my genre was only R&B so therefore a thinner font would have been reflective of my genre. Since I have acknowledged that other magazines focus on making their conventions (including their contents page) consistent with one another I have also delivered this in my front cover. The connotations that could be received from the Masthead ‘Quaver’ is a musical note which then reflects back on the genre of the magazine which is a music magazine.
Pug: used in different forms of magazines as well as a music magazine. It is used to convince the audience to buy the magazine. Looking at other magazine I have acknowledged that other magazines usually present this in outstanding colour which I have also delivered.
Font: The idea of the different font I used I also received from Vibe magazines. I believed that this colours worked well together so I used a similar idea for my own magazine
Layout: There is a calm effect to my magazine to reflect back on the relaxing beat of R&B music – this is also presented in some of Vibe magazine. Moreover, like my own magazine, a lot of the Vibe magazine usually have their text within the sides of the page. Although there are not many of them which do not have their Headline going across their page, I have seen other music magazines who have used this strategy and the layout still looks effective such as:
The Price and the Barcode are features which are expected in all magazines. As well as that Vibe magazine including other magazine from other genres converges with a website to show they are available in other platforms of the media so therefore I have used this idea as well.
Other Features : like Vibe magazine the text that are used are all relate back to the genre of the music. To portray this I have included several text e.g. ‘Trey Songz concert’ which is relatable as he is an R&B artist
Vibe magazine usually include one image in their front cover.
Just like Vibe magazine, certain images in my magazines show females with tight clothing with revealing body parts, which therefore implies sexual connotations. These type images will be appropriate to use for my magazine as it is targeting a maturing audience.
