Magazine Covers

In this magazine cover Jason Statham is posing in a very smart and formal fashion, Photoshop is used to clean up the photo as in putting filters in and overall cleanup of the image. This cover makes the magazine have a sense of fashion and formality. Especially because Jason Statham us a very respected well known celebrity more people are going to pick up and buy the magazine because when they look at it they see the magazine as respected by Jason Statham.

The magazine is also laid out in a very slick and formal way and the title is very bold and colourful the subtitles are on the side and look very easy to read and put there in the way that makes it look professional.

This magazine is themed for christmas, Snoop Dogg is dressed in a festive outfit on the front and all of the
titles are themed with christmas and festive font and decorations that relate to Christmas season. The language used to "Smokin' Christmas" shows how Snoop Dogg is related to smoking marijuana etc and has been used to take advantage of advertising this magazine and the Christmas related theme of it.

"How the super-rich are screwing America" This shows that this magazine is not loving Celebrities and other rich icons and that they may believe or at least publish that they have a negative influence on the nation.

This magazine called GQ shows James Franco on the cover. It shows him in a very positive way advertising his as the next James Dean. This cover is very bright and almost could be unisex this is not only because of the colour scheme but also because of the stories which are inside and are shown on the front such as "Where to find the best wine in the world" Which males and females would be interested in and also Football which most males would be very interested in.

There are also some articles on sex such as "Why no one uses condoms anymore" There is also 50+ pages of what to wear and how to wear it so this magazine cover shows that the magazine covers a lot of topics that a lot of people would be interested in reading.

In this magazine it clearly shows on the front cover that the magazine is intended for men, such as articles that say what women find sexy, the magazine also says on the front cover how to get easy money... This would grab the attention of many people just because they would be curious on how to make money.

Jay Z is on the front as he is shown very smart. This makes this magazine look very formal and well funded. Most of the articles in this magazine are about women money and how to get fit which most men would be very interested in. 

In this magazine much like the others the target audience is quickly given away, most of these articles would be interesting for a woman, such as showing tips on how to get thin or even look like Kim Kardashian. On the side it can be seen that even women TV is being shown such as what time and what programme. It also shows that fashion tips can be shown inside and an insight on celebrity life.

It also has the title "GET THIN FAST!" this can be seen as almost inviting to show people some diet secrets on how to be thin just because of how bold the title is.


Really good piece of work with the right amount of detail and analysis. Well Done.
