Page 1: Double page spread analysis

The image used for this NME double page spread is of Florence and the Machine. It is a long shot of her sitting on what appears to be an American flag, this is in relation to the content of the story. This image has been very cleverly used, for instance it is to the left hand side of the page, this means when a reader looks to the image they will then be drawn towards the information (the story). Not only does the image do this but the singe “USA” in the background also does, it starts from the left and leads on to the right directly towards the information, this gives the reader some form of direction to follow.

The image leads you to “USA” which then leads you towards the information.

The font used for the article is a standard font, this is in relation to other pages such as the content page in NME, this creates a flow thought the magazine and it helps give a professional and not over done look about it.

The image used is very striking and shows a sense of power, this is because the artist is sitting upon the American flag. This is in relation to the article. The subtitle says “She’s 2009’s biggest success story, with America at her feet” this tells me the designers for these two pages really thought about how the image could connect with the story line, by creating such a powerful and striking image and then looking over to the article title this will make the reader more convinced to read the article and understand the story behind the image.

The title above the article “got the love” is in relation to one of Florence’s top songs “You got the love”. This has been used to almost prove to the reader just how famous she has become, this is so because this is a lyric that everyone knows so it almost gives the reader something to familiarise with this article, it makes them want to read on because of this reason.

The colour scheme for this double page spread id of greys, blacks and some red. The background has been made grey and the text has been made black for a purpose. This purpose is so the reds in the image used would be highlighted above the rest of the page, so the reader id immediately drawn towards the image before the article, almost to enable the reader to identify the artist. Not only this but the producer of this spread has linked the colour of the artists hair with the stripes on the American flag, this is so the reader would look from the top of the page down where the flag is directly underneath the article.

Rhetorical question to make the reader want to read on.

The language used in the article is very formal and intelligent . It is very informing and presents the story well to aloe the reader to follow clearly.

Colum’s have been used for the article to make reading easer and to create a flow for the reader to follow.

Page 2: Double page spread analysis

This double page spread is of My Chemical Romance in a Karrang magazine. The main large image is off the lead singer, this image is taken in black and white to give the sense of rock music. All the photos are of live concerts and studio practise. This will drew in readers because it is informative as to how the artist work behind the curtains. The larger image is used to drew the audience down towards the other photos leading to the page containing the article, so the main image creates a sense of direction between the two pages.

The red used in the quotation and the world exclusive singe is the first thing I’m drawn to on this double page spread. I think this may have been done on purpose, because even though this should be distracting me from the images it still leads me towards them, they do this by spreading the quotation across both pages towards the main image which then leads me to the smaller images to the bottom of the page.

It may also be like this because the article may be considered as more important then the images.The world exclusive singe pointing towards the article

will drew in readers because it makes the reader feel like they are one of the few people who will be able to view this article.

The images back up the article explaining behind the scenes with MCR ( My chemical romance).

The quotation “WERE BEING THE BEST MCR WE CAN BE!” makes it seem like the band them selves are giving something to their audience, this is so it makes the reader feel invited to read and gain this gift the band is giving to them with their exclusive article. This quotation also highlights the band to be generous to their fans.

The part of the quotation that says “MCR” shows that this band must be popular and well recognised, this is so because if they weren’t popular the initials MCR would be unrecognisable. The use of using MCR instead of My Chemical Romance makes the reader feel like they have good knowledge about this band in particular, it is a way of flattering the reader and making them want to read on.

The article is very well written in formal language, informing the reader. The font used for the article is a standard font to make it easy to read and follow. The article has been set up in column’s again to make reading the article easer .

The font used for the head line follows the font generally used in the contents page and front cover of Karrang magazine, this font is made to look bashed and warn to make the theme of rock more prominent.

The sub title may attract readers because it makes them feel special to share this one in a million opportunity to get behind the scenes with MCR.

Give reader insight to some of MCR’s new tracks, this is informative and provides the reader with more.
