My magazine is called "Flava" and it is aimed at teenagers, as when I researched on magazines I found this one was quite popular. I spent 4 weeks on my magazine and put a lot of effort into it. Before I started to produce my magazine I planned out how I was going to set it out and what type of things I was going to include in it. Here is a list of what I came up with......

I used the band "Busted"'s logo on my front cover as well as there is a feature on them inside the magazine.

I then had to fill in its original red background with pink to match the background of my front cover. Also on the front cover, I have included the price, a barcode and a logo, "Girls with taste get Flava". For my barcode I used the search engine "Google" and typed in barcodes. I found one and cut copied and pasted again. ...read more.
