Company magazine analysis

  1. 1. Product Analysis<br />COMPANY<br />Magazine<br />Christian Whelan<br />
  2. 2. COMPANY<br />MAGAZINE<br />Company magazine is a monthly fashion, celebrity and lifestyle magazine published in the United Kingdom. It sells itself to a female target audience with its Fashion articles and interviews with female artists that are also role models to the potential female customers.<br /> In this analysis I shall cover the graphics seen on the front cover of this issue. What makes it sell and why the graphics have been used in they way they have been.<br />
  3. 3. THE<br />MASTHEAD<br />Company magazine is a monthly fashion, celebrity and lifestyle magazine published in the United Kingdom. It sells itself to a female target audience with its Fashion articles and interviews with female artists that are also role models to the potential female customers.<br />
  4. 4. Rihanna also has a very peachy face, making her seem much more appealing the they, and much more friendly. This elegance is used on female celebrities only on magazines that are marketed to a female consumer market.<br />THE<br />COVERSTAR<br />With recent event of domestic abuse making her a modern paparazzi feast. Females now look up to her as a strong role model, to follow in times of need. This characteristic she has been given will sell this magazine to females who admire her.<br />Rihanna is no doubt the most popular R’n’B Artist is the music Industry today. She has very feminine characteristics, and her music videos and publicity pictures all show of her feminine characteristics. This feminine look is used often on Company Magazine to make the magazine look feminine itself.<br />
  5. 5. A lot of woman tan, so an article on why they shouldn't do it will trigger their curiosity for their health.<br />Fashion article, designed and can only be aimed at women. As issues to do with physiques are popular amongst woman. This article would sell a magazine on its own<br />Sex gossip is common in feminine magazines. Telling me this magazine is aimed at 16 year old and older.<br />THE<br />COVERLINES<br />
  6. 6. No Background complication, only white background, so that nothing distract from her. Telling readers the article is going to show her for what she is, with no gimmicks and celebrity masks.<br /> Very loose, hanging dress, shows relaxation, as if to say even though she's been thru rubbish she's still relaxed and calm. A representation of a Role Model for young woman going though domestic abuse.<br />THE<br />Yellow is a very feminine colour, giving bright happy connotations. A male orientated magazine would have darker colours. The happier connotation relate with stereotypes of woman, the more happy, glamorous sex<br />COSTUME<br />Small dress to highlight physical features. Portraying her to be the ‘perfect woman’, again giving her a role model representation.<br />
  7. 7. BANNERS<br />The splash is yellow which coordinates itself with the cover star’s bright and attractive dress. As the cover star is the main attraction to the magazine. Its almost as if to say “if you want a magazine about her, then don't worry its 2 pound so you “should” buy it”<br /> The fact its the same colour and in the same general area tells us that the offer is as much of a reason o buy the magazine than the cover star. If the two go hand in hand like they've been designed to, then the magazine will be tempting to the average consumer.<br />AND<br />SPLASHES<br /> This magazine only has one convention on it. Which is a splash, usually this convention contains a tempting aspect of the magazine of why you should buy it, there is no difference here. The magazine believes its a worth buy as it only cost £2 pound. For this reason is placed in a splash a different colour than the rest of the background. Coloured in black to contrast with the yellow splash background.<br />
  8. 8. DATE/PRICE<br />BARCODE<br /> No Mise-en-scene can be discussed here however conventions can. All magazine and products have a bar code, so it is only a necessity but a convention of magazines. Usually the barcode is in the bottom right of left of the page, as far away from the main cover star as possible. However because of its colour and size, it has been placed in the middle of all the Coverlines. This way it is harder to find, which is the point of a barcode. So its hard to find, not part of the magazine design, but can be founds if necessary<br />The date and price of the magazine is located usually in a hidden area. This is conventional as the same idea of it being hidden whilst also readable has been adopted for both the price and date.<br />Its text size is extremely small. Emphasising the idea stated previously. This information isn't a vital part of the design, and is more formal. The editors don't want the magazine to seem formal, so they hide all the black and white information inside all the colour and pictures. Making the magazine informative if wanted, whilst also being creative and attractive.<br />
