AS Media Coursework: Rock Music Magazine Font and Colour Scheme Ideas. by Mind Map: AS Media Coursework: Rock Music Magazine Font and Colour Scheme Ideas.

1. Fonts.

1.1. 'Edirne':

1.1.1. The font is outstanding enough to be used as coverlines or even a masthead. This position will allow many alterations to be made to its aesthetics meaning that the effects can be further enhanced.

1.1.2. The irregular lining for the text almost coats the font with a childish yet mature tinge. This is incredibly appropriate the the established young target audience.

1.1.3. The font is, evidently, very worn and in a random order which works very well in comparison to the genre; the rebelliousness that the music is attempting to convey is being portrayed via the irregularity of this typography.

1.1.4. Yet again, the font may be a little cliche and overused within the field suggesting a measly status as another clone of a magazine.

1.2. 'Hard Rock':

1.2.1. The wear on the typography gives a rustic and softer appearance to the magazine perhaps initiating some sort of softer approach.

1.2.2. The font, again, is incredibly aesthetically pleasing and professional.

1.2.3. This font is not entirely reflective of the genre as it does not hold any sort of violence or danger to it; it may be more suited for a classic rock magazine.

1.3. 'Nervous':

1.3.1. The fade of the edges shows some sort of discombobulation or chaos which is enormously reflective of the rock music genre; rock, particularly metal and punk, is frequently associated with anarchy and rebelliousness which this font does illuminate to an extent.

1.3.2. This font is incredibly appealing as it is aesthetically pleasing as well as reflective of the genre and target audience.

1.3.3. The font would clearly stand out as a masthead or coverline on a front cover due to it's huge size, bold style, sans-serif stature and clear (but interesting) imprint.

1.3.4. The sleek nature of the font is indicative to it's modern stature. Some may consider it to be associated with technology which means that mere appearance would make the brand more current and up-to-date.

1.3.5. Despite the positives, the font may be a little to organised convey such rebelliousness as established by rock music. It may be more suited to a techno/dance magazine to a larger extent.

1.4. '84 Rock!':

1.4.1. The stencil design of this sans-serif item of typography adds to the rebelious musk hinted by the font. This would be ideal for an included section of text within the production process.

1.4.2. The thing that must be considered is: is it prolific and significant enough to be utilised as a masthead font? By itself, I believe that the text is bold enough too but doesn't hold the reader's attention. Perhaps after numerous tweaks regarding strokes, embossing, etc, the product will be adequate but I do not believe that this would be an epitomic masthead font.

1.4.3. The font in itself is incredibly generic and bland meaning that it will not stand out to the target audience. In addition, stencil typography is most commonly affiliated with wars and battle; the young target audience is unlikely to be familiar with this field meaning that the aesthetics will be rendered obsolete and inappropriate.

2. Colour Schemes.

2.1. Red and Black.

2.1.1. The striking contrast makes the cover eye-catching only attracting more purchasers.

2.1.2. These colours are commonly affiliated with the violence and passion of rock music; red occasionally connotes to blood, death and passion (passion held for the music).

2.1.3. The colour scheme would be slightly cliche and expected; these colours are frequently associated with rock music meaning that they lose some effect.

2.2. Yellow and Black.

2.2.1. The vulgar contrasting colours would make the cover of the magazine incredibly eye-catching.

2.2.2. Sticking to the biohazard theme of 'Outbreak' suggested prior, yellow and bkacj would be an interesting yet effective way to incorporate this masthead into the magazine.

2.2.3. Some consider yellow to be a softer, kinder colour which, in no way, reflects the attitude of the music genre.
