Analysis of 'TV Quick' Magazine Cover.

Extracts from this document...


Aanchal Clare 12R Analysis of 'TV Quick' Magazine Cover The name of the magazine I will be analysing is TV Quick. This is a TV listings magazine but also includes information and gossip about the TV world. My aim is to study and analyse the front cover of TV Quick and examine how and why certain methods and techniques are used in order for the magazine to appeal to a certain audience. Firstly, the name of the magazine could appeal to customers as it suggests that this magazine will give you information quickly. This is important as title as TV Quick suggests to the reader that they will get all the news and gossip they want instantly if they just buy this magazine.

Furthermore, the use of questions used, '-can Den stop her in time?' this makes the reader curious and they want to know more about what is going to happen, therefore they want to buy the magazine to find out. On the cover of TV Quick there are also several other different narratives at the side of the page with pictures. The effect of having this makes the front page more 'busy' and makes it look like there are lots of things going on in this magazine. ...read more.


The main audience that TV Quick is aiming at is also shown through its pricing. This magazine costs 65p. From this we can see that TV Quick is not aimed at a high social class but quite the opposite as this magazine is quite affordable for many people. Therefore, this magazine is mainly aiming its product to the working-class public. In conclusion I think that this magazine is quite popular due to the fact that a large majority of people watch soaps therefore it was also definite to say that TV Quick will have a large audience. The way the that this magazine is presented is very visual as it does not have large amounts of text on the cover which is good as it does not make the reader feel that they are not 'good enough' for it. Furthermore, the pricing of this magazine does not manage to exclude certain social classes from its audience, as it cost is very reasonable. ...read more.
