Easter Homework.

1. What conventions have I used and why
This magazine cover uses a mix of content. This is shown as one coverline talks about dresses and shopping whilst another coverline talks about speeding points and prison. It uses a mix of content so it attracts a wide range of audience. It also uses a direct mode of address as it says "Your Party" which makes it personal. Also it uses an aspirational tone as they put a well known and aspirational celebrity on the front. 

2. What are the effects of my layout, typography, colour choice and language choice. 
It uses a San serif font which is a informal and chatty font. The colour choice of this magazine is that it has a green background and has red text on top of it so it stands out and it is easy to read. The layout is asymmetrical as there is no set order and there are different amounts of cover lines on each side. 

3. What issues of representation have I presented. An issue of representation in this magazine cover is that little bits of text are unreadable as the background colour matches with the colour of the font.
