So i went online to try and find some magazines that i could see that looked a bit off. I visited some websites and stumbled across a website where you could view the front pages. I was flicking through and saw these few gems that could be redesigned.
I looked at the Whiskey magazine first as a possible magazine to change. The front covers are quite clean and well refined but the inside left something to be desired and i felt the was something to work with here, but you can’t really change the audience of a whiskey magazine as the consumers are a pretty small group. This ultimately lead me to look elsewhere and pick some other covers. The home farmer magazine had a pretty clear colour scheme of red white and yellow. The logo looked plain and rather boring and the text on the cover doesn’t do much to excite me . The text over the image is placed well and eligible but could do with some refining. could be marketed to a higher class audience, but there is the issue that farmers are not usually upper class or posh so might not be worth it.
I then saw these Garden News issues and immediately saw n opportunity. The front cover looked far too cluttered with too much going on. The text was clear enough but there was too much to read on the front. The colour scheme of blue and red downer really work all that well. Bright colours work well and allow the text to stand out. Could be made into a high class magazine as everybody enjoys gardening. Something to look into.
More research needed…
