Charts Music. Pop. Still appeals to an adult audience. Pink suggests a female audience but This cover suggests that the audience changes depending on the content. Masthead of the magazine is the same every time apart from being black or white depending on background. - Basic but the bright colours suggest a pop theme. Font doesn’t change just the size and colour to differentiate between articles. Photo goes off the frame. Shadow helps the text stand out. Button grabs attention. ULTIMATE suggests the best. Depending on the cover model, the magazine’s theme changes to appeal to the audience that would want to read about. Darren Criss appeals to a younger female audience but Eminem appeals to an older male audience so the magazine colours change.
