Magazine Cover Deconstruction
The masthead on this magazine is placed behind the main image, this helps the image stand out more. The black also stands out against the white background. The main image is Katy Perry, she is doing a sexy pose wearing skimpy clothing. This is to attract people to buy the magazine, especially males. The main coverline links with the main image because it tells you who they are. The sub-heading is telling us about Katy Perry by referencing one of her songs. The coverlines on this magazine are quite small as they arent as important as the main story. They are used to show the readers there are more stories in the magazine than just the main one. They are written in pink and black to stand out from the white background. The colour scheme is very plain but the pink and black go well together and stand out against the white background.
The masthead is placed behind the main image, this is so the image can stand out more. It is quite large which makes it stand out so more people will be attracted towards it. The main image is of Marisa Miller, she is doing a sexy pose by showing off her legs. She is wearing pink which links with the colour scheme of the magazine. The coverlines on this magazine vary in size to attract the readers to certain stories. This shows there is a variety of stories within the magazine other than the main one. The main coverline links with the main image as it tells us who it is. The sub-heading tells the readers more about the main story without going into too much detail. The colour scheme of the magazine is plain but bright. It has a plain white background but has bright colours used in the cover lines to help them stand out and attract readers.
The masthead is placed in front of the main image so that it will be more noticeable. The colour gold against white makes it stand out more.The main coverline links with the main image because it tells you who it is. The cover lines on this magazine stand out as they are in a variety of colours, red, gold, white and black. They are used to tell the reader about the other stories in the magazine. The main image for this magazine is Rita Ora. She isnt wearing any clothes and is doing a sexy pose. This is to attract more readers to the magazine, specifically males. The colour scheme for this magazine is using red, black and gold to stand out on the white background. Overall ThoughtsOverall I thought the layout was best on the GQ magazine as it was less crowded with information and didnt go into much detail about the stories in the magazine but showed you there was a variety of different stories, which I think attracts the readers more. However I liked the colour scheme on the SHAPE magazine as it included bright colours like yellow to make it stand out more against the white background. I also liked how on the GQ magazine the masthead was placed in front of the main image so you could see it more clearly which will attract more people to buy it, especially if the main image is a seductive image. For my magazine I will complete the design and layout like the SHAPE magazine as I think the colours scheme stands out more and attracts more readers.
