My two rival magazines would be NME magazine and also Kerrang this is because they fit into the genre of music my artist will be based upon and also my target audience.
I chose those as a front cover as I liked the colour scheme as well as the layout. The colour scheme in the background complemented her eye make-up which draws the readers attention, as well as that I liked the way the model fills the left hand side of the magazine cover which leaves the right hand side for the text. There is a minimal amount of texts which shows the reader the main storied within the magazine.
I chose magazine front cover fro Kerrang! I liked the overall design of this front cover because it breaks all the stereotypical ordered layout of a front cover. When I looked at this magazine the first thing I noticed was the font in front of the band it grabs your attention as it isn’t the regular font. I also liked the way most of the artists in each photo are dressing in black which draws the reader away from them which makes you read the font surrounding it. I found that this front cover had an overall good feel and was out going.
