Amy Carle Magazine Evaluation Cover The genre of this magazine is rock and so the cover has to be attractive to people that are interested in this type of music. This is done by the use of dark colours, in this case, Black, red and green. The masthead looks as though it has been smashed and so gives the look of violence and rebellion. The cover is packed full of cover lines showing readers what is included in the magazine, persuading them to buy it. It is a very ‘busy’ cover. The main band featured is Parkway Drive, and they are shown to be looking pretty serious, the lead singer is clenching his fists, again showing the themes of the magazine, rock and rebellion.

  • 1. Amy Carle Magazine Evaluation Cover The genre of this magazine is rock and so the cover has to be attractive to people that are interested in this type of music. This is done by the use of dark colours, in this case, Black, red and green. The masthead looks as though it has been smashed and so gives the look of violence and rebellion. The cover is packed full of cover lines showing readers what is included in the magazine, persuading them to buy it. It is a very busy cover. The main band featured is Parkway Drive, and they are shown to be looking pretty serious, the lead singer is clenching his fists, again showing the themes of the magazine, rock and rebellion.

2. Amy Carle Contents The contents page is mostly pictures; it shows more pictures of bands that are featured on the cover, showing continuation. There is also a definite house style as the same font has been used as on the front cover and also the headline of each article featured are all in the same bold font and colour. It is a very clear contents page, every cover story has been picked out, he page numbers are in a different colour and so stand out making things easy to find. 3. Amy Carle Double page spread This double page spread is set out very clearly, text on one page and a picture on the other. There is definite consistency and house style which brings across the genre of the magazine. The image of the band used on the right page shows them in a very fun, up for a laugh way instead of the serious, dangerous way they are shown on the cover but the colours used on the left hand page continues the rock genre of the magazine. On the left page is the article, it is set on a black background which continues similar colours used on the cover page and contents- dark colours, mainly black, again showing the genre rock and rebellion. The headline- Parkway Drive, Point Break - is consistent with the house style, it is the same font, bold and white which makes it stand out against the black background.
