Christ the King: Aquinas
How did you attract/address
For my first model he is wearing a chequered
top which connotes that he is a cool and calm
guy. He may attract readers because of the
fact that he is supposed to be a star for the
double page spread and so the target
audience may want to get an idea of what he
looks like and how he dresses and so maybe
interested in him.
For my second model, she does not show
much in terms of what she is wearing but she
may attract the readers’ attention because of
her pure beauty as she hardly is wearing
much make up and many of the male target
audience like this in girls.
My third model may be of interest to fans
because of his dress sense which many may
like or get inspired by. His leather top
indicates that he is up to date with how
people in the target audience age group dress
which shows there is some common
similarities between the model and the target
audience. He is also wearing some
headphones which may also add to the fact
that he has ‘style’.
For my design, the music magazine is actually an indie
type based music magazine. Therefore, I used colours
which I associated with indie type music and also asked
my peers and we generally came to the conclusion that
indie based music generally connotes a peach colour
and so I tried to make my background appropriate
In terms of my structure of my front page, contents and
the double page spread, I made it conventional as to
make it easier for the reader to read.
During my photo taking of the models I used natural
light to bring out their clear features and so it would be
more easier for the target audience to identify with the

audience to understand which section they may want to
read and so clearly highlights which section is which and
what page they can find it on.
In addition by having the cover lines on the side and
having celebrities that are indie based musicians, this
would attract the reader because it’s an indie type
based music magazine.
Language and font:
For my language, I used language in which is able to be
understood by my target audience and so made it easily be
read for everyone in the target audience.
When I was writing for the target audience, I made it as if it
was actual conversation and so it may be seen as colloquial
in one way or another.
For my writing I made the font ‘Myriad Pro’ which I believe is
a font which is not too formal but also enables the target
audience to be able to read the text. My masthead is done
in ‘Myriad Pro’ and my double page spread is in ‘Caviar
Dreams’. This is because I believe different designs for the
title enables the reader to be attracted to the magazine and
possibly make them more likely to read about the double
page spread or the front page.
My contents page’s writing is generally in ‘Myriad Pro’ as I
wanted to appeal to the reader and the font can also be
