I think the content of my magazine is good as it links well with the type of magazine Unique is and fulfils part of what I offered as part of my magazine. The style of my magazine is quite formal because I think this makes it look sophisticated and grown up. I also think it’s important for the content to look proffesional as I want people to think the information is of good quality. I think if I presented it bad people would probably disregard the information as bad aswel.
The tone of the magazine is informal as the content is mostly people’s opinions. Its hard to make the tone of the magazine more formal because the interviews, real life stories and problem pages are people’s personal accounts of things and making them more formal would change things completely. I’ve chosen the front cover image because the girls’ eyes are quite eye-catching, shes pretty and shes wearing fashionable clothes. On the contents page I’ve used an image of a boy and a girl having fun on the beach because it’s a summer issue.
I’ve also used an image of the front cover and an inside article on the contents because I think its important for people to see whats coming in the magazine. I’ve chosen to use quite formal but simple language so it’s easy to understand for everyone and I’ve used nice, clear fonts I think are appropriate for the article. I’ve colour co-ordinated the font with the article. The contents page is slightly different because its brightly coloured to attract attention and each section has a different colour. I’ve addressed my audience by putting content suitable for them in my magazine.
I’ve also used questions every now and then to get the reader thinking about certain things like ‘Which dress do you like? ‘ and ‘Peaches… Blonde or Brunette? ‘. I think this is good as it gets the reader involved straight away makin them feel like there part of the magazine and that their opinion counts. My magazine aims to educate people more about life and fashion. I hope the problem pages and the real life stories show people that they’re not alone with their problems and maybe someone has had a life experience the same as them.
I hope the fashion pages help people stay updated with the ever changing fashion world and understand more about fashion so they can wear clothes that suit them and make them look and feel confident. I also hope that the celebrity interviews shine a different light on people and show the public how nice and down-to-earth a certain person is or how mean and bossy they may be. My main aim is just for people to enjoy reading Unique and to maybe learn something new and feel more confident.
