Idea 1 : With the first sketch I went with the simple and sophisticated
look; having the page consists of a small amount of text and the image
dominating, which I researched in the contents page and Florence double page
spread which I analyzed. However doesn’t really have the loud Pop music feel or
portray the contrast with the indie and pop ; it's not bubbly and fun with that
edgy twist of indie so then the target audience can relate. This sophisticated
look appeals to an older audience therefore wasn't right.
Idea 2 : I experimented more with the idea of double page and trying to use
the space and create a bubbly and fun feel so then the target audience can
relate. But I think I when a bit too crazy and its very jumbled and on top of each
other which makes it hard to understand and read; a bit in your face and
overwhelming. This I feel was more of a child’s magazine with everything
jumping out trying to captivate and keep their attention as children tend to
have a short attention span.
Final Idea : I wanted to have a balance between of the two as the target
audience like to feel their mature but really deep down they are a bit of a big
kid. I followed elements of ' The teenagers' double page spread from the
research as I felt it would be more successful and appealing to the audience.
The image was put on the left side as you read from left to right which exaggerates
the 'image' is the main feature and then the text on the other page. Compare to
'The Teenagers from my research I intend to add pictures in the middle of my
text to portrays the Pop, teens, fun and bubbly theme.
