Front Cover

Second Draft
This is my second draft of my cover.
-This time i have used a new photo which is alot clearer and fits the page better.
-I have added the text and put drop shadow on it to make it stand out more on the page and therefore easier to read.
-I chose to used pinks and purples as my colour scheme becuase the magazine is amied at young women and these are stereotypically feminine colours.
-The main photo has larger text underneath it than the other hooks to show that it is the feature article in the magazine.
-The text 'Miss-Fits' has a drop shadow, outer glow, bevel and emboss, as well as gradiet overlay. I did this so that it would empahsize the text and make it one of the frist things the consumer would look at on the page.
-I decided that by advertising winning tickets to see Beyonce Live at the O2 would attract more readers, its also a common convention of popular magazine to give a free gift or competition on the cover.
-By moving the barcode to the bottom of the page it detracts attention away from it meaing people will focus more on the other stories on the cover.
-All of the writing has drop shadow to make it appear bolder on the page and therefore easier to read.
Although this photo is much better than the first one I still feel it isnt bright enough which is why I will adapt in on my third cover.
