Reckless Life I believe would be the most ideal name. Its is a very popular song by Guns N Roses which is a link I believe my target audience will recognise. The meaning can be interpreted in different ways and therefore means it does not exclude any demographics or phycongraphics.

MOOD BOARD This has been

constructed around how the front cover will hopefully look. The layout has been designed to be a model of how it should look. The images and quotes have been chosen to represent the genre and the layout of the text on the second page has again been constructed to act as model for the double page spread .

MAST HEAD I would like to have quite a simple mast head but very bold and bunt.

Something that will catch the eye of passers by but will not take the attention away form my main image as it is intended to be creative and eye-catching for each issue. It also means it will be more memorable and there fore recognisable to the intended target audience.

The I in Life seems to be a good place to start. The idea was to change it with an image of either a sword to represent recklessness or a guitar to represent the rock genre. It is quite simple and will not take long to constructor take an image of one of the two.

There is also the idea to change the colour of one letter either the I in Life or the E in Reckless or the first letter of each word. The majority of the lettering will be black but depending on the colour scheme chosen it could look quite effective yet very simple.

MAST HEAD EXAMPLES I have chosen to go with my first design as it is simple and will not attract attention away from my main image and lead line. It is also eye-catching and easily recognisable so my readers will easily see it.

Here are a few ideas for colour schemes. As your colour scheme is one of the most important things to consider below are a few different examples. Originally lots of bright colours seemed to be what I was leaning towards but after some research it seemed that one colour mixed with shades was more fitting for the genre. The two on the right are more affective. The bottom one is very much like the mood board and as that was very effective it may be that it would be the most appropriate and fitting for my genre.

PHOTO SHOOT I would like to use a band as models for the photo shoot. I have worked

with one before during my A2 work and believe they could create a good image. I have already taken some practice shots of them individually which put together may be used for the contents page.

However for the front cover I wish to use the image I created for my mood board as it stands out and is quite different. I may make some slight change but overall the idea of it fits the genre rather well.

For the double page spread I wish to use a simple shot of them to bring out their ‘true self's’. It will again be a group shot but it may be a silhouette instead of the ‘clear’ picture.
