For my Font cover I have used conventions that you would see in a typical Q magazine as I wanted to relate my styling design to one of their magazines. I have used the idea where you can see different images in his sunglasses and thats what I did in my magazine. The only difference between my front cover and Q magazines is the camera shot. I have used a medium long shot but Q have used a medium close- up, that would be one off my disadvantage when taking my picture, I should have done the same as then the audience could have clearly seen the extra images and the effect in the glasses. There are a lot of colours used on my front cover, I decided to go for a colourful background and then her clothes would be plain, so it wouldnt be too busy and over the top.

As you can see, again I have used the conventions thats are used in the majority of magazines. Instead of Q as a frame, I decided to have a look at other music magazines which I then found NME which is another popular music magazine. What I liked about their page was the layout, so I then used that in my magazine. I have added another major story, I used this as the main image on my contents page making my magazine spread more interesting and extra which will intrigue the reader, instead of having another female artist which I already have on my front cover alternatively I used a boy group purely because I wanted to aim my magazine to a wider ranged audience. I also split my page up into three sections: features, seen and reviews which enables the audience to see what is in my magazine first.

My main intention for my double page spread was to based my whole article on my artist, showing the audience/ reader the type of person she is. I used the design of having one full page of the artist, my artist has taken her glasses off and is looking at the article page, I thought this was a clever idea because my article is a question and answer. I decided to use the idea of having the artists initial first name letter behind the article because I like how Q did this, it made the double page more professional and creative looking also looking sophisticated. I also included little images of my artist which I saw on a blog on a app called instagram I really liked the idea because when I saw it on instagram it made me like the person even more, because it shows her personality, also making the article more exciting and a little crazy.
