1. What two conventions have I used and why?
-The two conventions that i have used are model/celeb on my magazine cover and direct mode of address.I have used a celebrity on my magazine which is Rita Ora because she is a young successful music artist and the target audience is teenagers because they look up to celebrities.The direct mode of address that i have used is (great new looks for you) this coverline attracts the reader because it is speaking straight to you.

2.What are the effects of my layout,Typography,colour choice and language choice?
-The effects of my layout is that the coverlines on each side of my magazine cover is about the same amount of writing and it is Symetrical. Some of the coverline that I wrote were(you will be glamourable in a flash)this is talking straight to the reader.I have made the title bold so it stands out for customers that look at it from a distance and I have put the title in nice style so it attracts people.

3.What issues of representation have I presented
I have presented Rita Ora as the celebrity on the front cover because teenage girls could look up to her,she is wearing fashionnable clothes so that shows that she could know fashion tips for young girls,also the coverlines that I have written might not be suitable and customers might not like that and put them off of the magazine and they might not buy it.

Colour Connotation
I have chosen this Glamour magazine because it has got a blue background this stimulates that it increases calmness, peace, love, honesty, kindness, truth inner peace, emotional depth and devotion. Also some of the writing is in red and that stimulates that it increases physical energy, vitality, stamina,ground, spontaneity, stabability and passion.
I have chosen this health magazine because the background is green and that stimulates that it supports balance, harmony, love , communication, social, nature and acceptance.The title of the magazine is "Natural Health"this is in yellow and it blends in with the other colours such as brown and white.

I have chosen this magazine because the celebrity is wearing orange and that stimulates creativity,productivity, pleasure, optimism, enthusiasm and emotional expression.Also the colour orange blends in with the background.Also the blue writing which says hair stimulates that it increases calmness, peace, love, honesty, kindness, truth, inner peace, emotional depth and devotion


Really good piece of work with the right amount of detail and analysis. Well Done.

This magazine is symetrical because the shape of the writing on the left and on the right is about the same width. The writing is in white so it stands out to the dark red background. Also the colour on both sides are balanced.
This magazine is asymmetrical by shape because Oprah's hair is really eye catching because her hair is covering lots of the page so that is the first thing you would look at. Also she is wearing orange and it goes with the title, and the writing is in coloum form.

This magazine is Asymmetrical because the colour is balanced on the right and on the left because on some parts it is all pink and all black. Also the the headline of this magazine is all blue so it stands out. The position of the celebrity and the writing is very symmetrical because Kim Kardashian has her arms out to the side.The eye direction of Kim Kardashian is looking straight at trying to tell you to read the magazine.The value of this magazine is very positive because it tells you how to look good and how to loose pounds.

This magazine is asymmetrical because the colour is balanced very well on each side.the texture balance is very good because the detail in the writing is very easy to read and affective.The shape of the writing is in a coloumn form mostly down the right hand side of the magazine.

This is a good start and you have the basics here. However, this does not have a huge amount of detail and you will need to explain your answer more.
