The differing techniques used by magazines to attract the desired target audience.

Introduction

In my coursework project I aim to look at and investigate the differing techniques used by magazines to persuade and inform. The area of the magazines that I am going to concentrate on will be the front covers. I hope to investigate ways in which magazine front covers appeal to and attract the desired target audience. Age, sex, likes and dislikes are all elements which contribute towards the magazines audience.

Company is aimed at readers who are roughly in the age category 18-25.
