Screenshots for front cover. By Mollie Harvey
I was not 100 per cent sure which image I wanted to use for my front cover do I used a black background until I was sure. I started off with my logo as I thought this was a good place to start.
After I decided which cover lines etc. I wanted to use on my magazine I added them to my front cover. I used different font sizes for different parts having the most important information in the biggest font, making them very eye-catching. After looking at one of Q magazines I saw they used red lines to separate things on their front cover. I thought this was a good convention so used their idea but changed it slightly for my magazine.
I thought my page was looking quite plank so I thought I would add something on the right hand side. This gave extra information to pull my audience in. And I decided to use a flash, making it stand out even more.
I thought my front cover was still looking quite bare so I decided to add a cover line and pull quote. I decided to put Lucy Morris is red to make the page really pop. And it really draws you in. The pull quote is used to give the my audience a hint of what's inside. The reason I put it below the cover line is because your eyes are drawn to the cover line and you would read this after.
After I put the image in I thought my front cover really came together and looks very effective. The reason for my image to be in red is because I thought it made the writing really stand out. One of NMEs front covers had the writing in black and white and the image very bright. I decided to do mine the other way around and I think this really works.
