Front Cover Research

In my research into student magazines, I came across an effective front cover style that would be suitable for my magazine. I didn’t want it to be too busy of colourful, but stylish, sleek and appealing to all ages and sexes. As a result, I have decided that my front cover should be a candid full body shot of one of my interviewees from the university; this means that students might recognise the face of the student and pick up the magazine, or be intrigued about its contents and decide to read it. My interviewee, Jools, will be photographed outside of the Hull School of Art & Design building to anchor the fact that some of the stories are HSAD-based.

This is the magazine front cover image that I got my inspiration from:
