Preliminary Project
My name is Thomas .M. Hannett and I am student at Heworth Grange 6th Form studying media. The brief we were given was to design and create the front cover and the contents of a school magazine. The photo on the left is a finished copy of my front cover.
To create this cover, firstly I had to go around the school and take some photos of people which I have used on my front cover. The main image on the front cover was taken and then edited on 'Photoshop' to remove the background which was not required on the cover.
I then decided to add a bright and attractive background of orange fading into red, from top left to bottom right. This attractiveness is added too by adding a bright, bold and textured heading to attract the reader.
The three photos down the left of the cover pull the reader in because they are attracting and make the reader want to know more.
The price at the bottom of the cover is bright and simple. It shows you that the magazine is good value and good quality.
Under the title I have written 'issue 1' which informs the reader that this is the first issue of a series of magazines.
The barcode on the bottom left of the cover is small but easy to find by the cashier
