Contents Page

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-N1-XR5U6l_4/TskznJZU7eI/AAAAAAAAAEg/pGJ9dWOO25U/s400/Kerrang-Contents-page-.jpgThere is an image of the front cover on the contents page which creates aclear link between the contents and the front coverof the magazine, showing us that Metallica is themain featurefor this issue of Kerrang! It includes a short paragraph from the editor of the magazine, where he uses afriendly mode of address. At the end there is his signature which creates apersonal touch, whichadds to the informalityof the magazine.

All text in the contents page uses the same font and only3 different coloursare used which creates ahouse style.

The yellow of the word Contentscontrastsagainst the black background making the masthead stand out.The masthead font and colour are not the same as the front covers masthead colour.Yellow is the main colouron the contents page as the title, article names and the highlighted numbers on the images are all in yellow.

There is apull quotefrom thefeatured bandon the front cover Metallica which isadvertising the page they are featured onwithin the magazine.

Kerrang! Contents Page

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-N1-XR5U6l_4/TskznJZU7eI/AAAAAAAAAEg/pGJ9dWOO25U/s400/Kerrang-Contents-page-.jpgThe main image used isthe main articlein the magazine. The image is large enough todraw peoples attention to it, which is what the magazine wants the readers to see.There are more smaller images around the main image which are also articles included within the magazine.Under each image there isa captionstating what the article is about.

The name of each band is written inblock capitalsand is in ablack bold font on a white backgroundmaking itstand outto the reader. Next to the band name is the page number in yellow allowing the reader to skip to a particular page to find this article.

Thelayoutof the contents page has been split up into4 different columns.The contents column text mainly includes names of different bands. This is toattract readers attentionto their favourite bands, so they will then purchase the magazine.

Thehouse styleof the magazine (yellow, white & black) areneutral coloursand arent considered to be masculine or feminine colours which Is because the magazines target audience are forrock and heavy metal fanswhich could attract either gender.

Kerrang! Double Page Spread

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-RIZFWvHMadI/T6hI0TpI5OI/AAAAAAAAAC8/NZyfdA0pf1Q/s1600/double+page+spread+2.jpgThe celebrity featured on thisdouble page spreadis the artistDaveyHavok. Its amid-shot imageof him to reveal his heavily tattooed arms whichcreate an identityfor the artist and alsoshows a sense of rebellionand suits thegenreof the magazine well (rock).

Themain imagetakes up the whole of the left hand side of the double page, this could perhaps reveal that he isa loud and confident personwho likes the attention.

The main image is on the left hand side as its the spot that thereader will glance at firstwhen reading the magazine. They will then work their way onto the title which is ina white and pink bold font on a black backgroundmaking itstand outto the reader. Some of the words are in thecolour pinkto create amellow happy mood. Especially around the words casual and Friday.

The word Absolutely is written incapital lettersas DaveyHavokshouted this when he was asked that question.

The artist has got adirect mode of addresswhich gives it a morepersonal touchto the magazine article as it feels like he is staring directly at the audience,enticing youto read this particular page.

Kerrang! Double Page Spread

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-RIZFWvHMadI/T6hI0TpI5OI/AAAAAAAAAC8/NZyfdA0pf1Q/s1600/double+page+spread+2.jpgThe overalllayoutof this double page spread is that themasthead takes up about 1/3 of the second pageat the top of the page. This is effective as it means that it willattract the readerfrom the main image to the masthead. However, personally I think the layout is quite boring and bland and doesnt really attract me to want to read the chunks of text underneath the masthead.

Thelayoutof the article is in3 columnswhich take up the remainder of the page.Ibelieve this is also a veryuninteresting way of laying out the text on this magazine as there is no creativity to the way you could you could structure it. In my magazineI will use colour and font to give words bigger andbetter second meanings for an example casual Friday is in pink to create a calm casual atmosphere. The effect ofthis isthat it can make the words stand out to represent the artist as a person.

The interview questionsare placedin frontofawhite backgroundtohelp them becomemore prominenton the page.The artists clothesare rather casual and yet link with the rock genre. Hisrock imageseems obvious because of thestereotypical featuressuch as thetattoo's,messy hair andjust his overallappearanceandlaidbackstance.
