• For my front cover I will have an eye catching masthead that’s attractive to
the reader. I will also have a main image that takes over about 50% of the
page, I will use pull quotes also to help sell the magazine.

use pull quotes to make sure the reader wants to read on. I’ll also use
colour to help distinguish different titles for the reader.
• Finally on my double page spread, I will have my models image covering
just over 50% of the page, he/she will be wearing something eye catching
and it has to be entertaining for the viewer. I will also use bright bold text
and an attractive masthead so the reader is intrigued.
