- Simple colour scheme of red, black and white. Attention grabbing colours, conventional of Q magazine as its been used for many years.
- Typical magazine cover conventions:
*-- Magazine title is slightly obscured by the models, this is a well known magazine so it isn't necessary to see the whole name.
*-- Price, issue date and bar codes are all included on this piece.
*-- 3/4 Fonts used on this piece.
*-- Justified text.
*-- Banner across the top bearing the tagline "The UK's biggest music magazine."
Personal Thoughts; I really like this cover. Its eye catching attracts the attention of the target audience straight away. It also appeals to me as I listen to the type of music on this cover and like the magazine anyway, so as a consumer I would buy this. It deffinitely ticks all the boxes.
