Results From Preliminary Research The results that I got from my research is that students in sixth form dont read a lot of magazines. I know this because in my results, 70% of the students said they dont read magazine as they prefer to view other types of media. Although most of the sixth former said that they dont read a lot of magazines, when asked what types of magazines do you read most?, 60% of the sixth formers said that they will prefer to read a sports magazines. This clearly shows that in my magazine, I should includes sports articles about football basketball and other popular sport to attract the interest. This is because this is by far sixth former best genre. Excluding sports, another genre of magazines that sixth formers liked to read was music. 25% of the sixth former said that they will prefer to read article about music. This shows that I should included some article about music star, their new songs and life stories. Another thing that I learnt from my research is that sixth formers spend 1 hour on average a week reading magazines. This shows that in my magazine, I should the information short, sharp and straight to the point because sixth former tend not to spent a lot of time reading. This also means that if I include a lot of information and lots of text, they might not read it because they dont spend a lot of time reading magazines. One piece of important information that I learnt was that 100% of the sixth former had no job of any kind. This means that I could include a article in the magazine about available jobs is different places. Also, sixth formers are is the social economical group E which means that they dont earn what also explains why when I asked how much do you spent on magazines in a week? 75% of the sixth formers said 2-3. 4. Magazine Evaluation Mast Head Headline The masthead is positioned in a right place and is in a usable font. Also, the masthead relates to the sixth form because the sixth form that the cover is for is Harris Academy Greenwich. Puff The puff is also positioned in the right place however, it looks unprofessional as for the writing within the puff isnt in the middle and also, it unclear to see and their a full in the puff. Main image The quality of the image isnt good at all. This is because on the edges, you can see some of the black bits from the other background were the picture is cut off from. Also, the picture wasnt edited properly as for you can see the boy slits on his eyebrow. This make the image look unprofessional because the man in the image looks ruff and a bit scruffy. Strap line The strap lines are all good and in the right place on the front cover. However, the colour that I chose was a bad decision because some of the strap line clashes will the background. For example, the tips on how to write a perfect CV clashes with the blue background. Tag The meaning of the tags is good and meaningful as for it shows people what the magazine cover is about. Also, the colour of the tag (yellow) should man that it would stand out from the rest of the text but due to the multiple colours that I chose, the tag which is mean to stand out didnt because it wasnt contrasting the rest of the writing. Barcode The barcode in this cover is positioned in the right place and is the right size. Splash The splash that I used on this cover is good because it urges the reader to read on(if it relate to them). However, just like the tag, the splash doesnt stand out enough as for it clashes with the masthead and Jack the Font The fonts that I used was a bad chose because there are so many different front. This is bad because it doesnt fit the normal conventions of a magazine. This is because if you use more than three front it make the cover look unprofessional because the words dont math with each other. 5. Magazine Evaluation Firstly , I put the masthead HAGGIE is bright red and capitals in order to allow it to stand out and to allow people to understand what the magazine is about which is about Harris Academy Greenwich. Secondly in my magazine, I only used a maximum of three fonts because it wouldnt meet the normal amount of fronts used in normal magazine covers. Also, using more than three fonts will cause the front cover to look untied and look rough. Also, I decided to used the word Superstar as my tag because it makes the viewer want to have to read on as for they dont know what exactly what talking about but for word superstar , they know that its good and will be interesting to read about. As for the colour scheme, I decided to use three brighter colours (red , yellow and blue) to allow to the magazine front cover to stand out. I also chose to use bright colours because it will catch the attention of the viewer. Before I chose the splash, I wanted to pick something that will make the viewers have to read on for them to retrieve more information so I decided to use the Superstar. I decided to chose this because the viewer wouldn't be to clear about what I'm talking about unless they read on. When I was choosing my strapline, i went back onto my questionnaire so that I can see what the sixth former like from a magazine. For the answers that I retrieved from my questionnaire, I then formed straplines In which will interest the sixth formers in order for them to read. Because my splash was superstar I decided to make the my splash and my puff relate. From this, I decided to make my puff a star with writing in the star. 6. To the original image that I had, I made some improves to it in order to make it more effective to view. Firstly, I went onto Photoshop in order for me to change the background of the photo. This is because I didnt want to use a black background as I preferred a more brighter background like the blue one that I used instead of the black one that I used. This is because the blue and white background that I used would be more likely to catch the attention of a view as for it is more brighter. 7. Music Magazine 8. NME magazine is a music magazine that is aimed males of the ages of 17-30. 73% of the NME readers are male and the other 27% of the readers are females. The average age reader of the NME reader is people of the ages of 25. Q magazine is a stylish music magazine that is aimed at males and females that are over the ages of 25. This is because the owner felt as if their categories of people needs wasnt being met by other music magazine that was present at the time. Q magazine are aimed at people in the social economic group D (which are semi-skilled and unskilled manual workers.) & group E (casual labourers and unemployed.) Audience Vibe magazine is an music and entertainment magazine that Is aimed at 18 to 34 year old people. Vibe magazine is equally aimed at both male and female viewer and has article for both genders to enjoy. Vibe magazine is aimed at people in the social economical group E which are casual labourers and unemployed people. Especially people that are in that are unemployed. Vibe magazine is aimed at young individuals that like to be part of something new instead of following old ways. Not only is Vibe aimed at people that like or listen to music, its also aimed at people that are into fashion and pop culture although Vibe is mostly known for RnB. This shows that Vibes isnt just isnt into one specific group of people although 75% of Vibes audience are Black/Africa American. Vibe audience also seen as the voice of urban music and culture. 9. This is the questionnaire, I will be asking both male and females aged between 18/25. These questions will give me a better understanding of my target audience and what they like to do in their spare time. Within my questions, I will also be asking a variety of questions which will increase my knowledge about them and put me on track to include the things that they like in my magazine.

Similarly to Vibe, my magazine will be aimed at mostly white and black people of both genders from the ages of 16-24. My magazine will be aimed at people in the social economical group C1-E which includes both working people and students but are a more aspirational group rather than the wealthy. It will be based around the urban city live which is why Im choosing the economic group because they wouldnt be working extremely long hours meaning they be more likely to ha
