Conclusion After researching the 3 different genres I have came
to the conclusion that I would like to choose the genre of pop for
my final magazine. I have chosen this because I take more of an
interest in pop music than I do in rock or indie. I have found out
that throughout all the different genres of magazine there appears
to always be a main image of a celebrity/celebrities used which
will obviously attract the reader to the magazine. Also the
mastheads on all 3 genres are placed pretty much at the top of the
cover and the font is always a lot bigger than the rest used on the
front. The fonts are always the same or similar so that they are
recognisable to the reader and so they know what they are expecting
inside. The sell lines are always clear and easy to read to give
the reader more of an insight of what else will be part of that
magazine. If there are other images used within the front cover
apart from the main one they are usually also celebrities or well
known people within that genre of magazine.
