Week Beginning Work Completed
Summer Holidays N/A
10th September Introduction to the AS course. I created a WordPress account
and added in the pages to my blog so I knew what to include
21st September I looked at the different theories of Katz, Hartley and Maslow,
chose my magazine of inspiration and then applied them to it.
1st October I then created a questionnaire in order to find out who my
target audience were and what would attract them into
buying my magazine so I could use this as a reference when
producing my actual magazine in Photoshop. I also made hand
drawn drafts for both the preliminary and main task.
9th October Using my hand drawn drafts, I started the production of both
my front cover and contents page for my preliminary task and
almost finished them.
17th October I finished the preliminary task after receiving feedback and
making some alterations.
Half Term N/A
6th November I started the production of my front cover for my music magazine.
I used my hand drawn draft in order to know where to place the
codes and conventions as well as my magazine of inspiration. I
planned and started to take pictures for my front cover.
10th November I looked at my magazine of inspiration – Kerrang! – to determine
what kind of cover stories and information should be included in a
rock magazine in order to attract an audience.
20th November After deciding what image to use, I inserted the main headline
and the picture I took to use as my main image and made it cover
most of the page as I had seen other rock magazines do.
4th December I completed my front cover and started to produce my contents
page. I copied across the masthead from my front cover onto my
contents page and then created my editorial.
12th December I added my cover stories from my front cover onto my contents
page and added some extra information as well as inserted an
image of myself into my editorial and 2 other images for my cover
17th December I created a text box in the top left hand corner of my page to
include information of how and where my target audience could
subscribe to my magazine.
Christmas Holidays N/A
8th January I double checked my contents page to ensure that I had
completed it and then started on my double page spread.
16th January I started to create the questions and answers for my interview
in Microsoft Word to ensure everything was spelt correctly
and made sense and I used various magazine articles online
for inspiration on what to include.
23rd January I completed the interview and inserted it into Photoshop after
using the pen tool to wrap it round the quote that I placed in
the centre of the left page. I then differentiated between the
questions and answers by making them different colours as
this made it easier for the audience to read.
7th February I then took a variety of images for my double page spread and
then decided on an image that was similar to another one of
my magazines of inspiration; Classic Rock. This image
completely covered a page of my spread and was black and
white which was similar to what I had seen Classic Rock do.
26th February I researched some information about the celebrity in my
interview so I could use it for my introduction of her and
included the success she has had in order to encourage my
target audience to read it.
10th March Finally I added some small aspects to my double page spread
such as social networking links and a website that my
audience could access in order to get more information.
19th March After checking that I had completely finished each of my
pages, I started my evaluation. I first of all inserted the images
of my photography planning and completed pages of my
music magazine. I explained why I didn’t use some of the
images I took and why I picked the final one, I also analysed
each of my pages.
22nd March After completing all of the questions and checking over them,
I then collected my audience feedback through Facebook and
Twitter and by recording them through an audio on my phone.
I asked them what they liked about each of my pages, what I
could improve on and whether or not they would buy my
27th March Once everything was completed I then began to add
everything onto my blog on WordPress.
