Analysing the effectiveness of background colour in magazines.

Extracts from this document...


I find that because the back ground is white you will find it immediately attracts you to look at it, as it is bright compared to the rest of the magazine. White is a very plain colour and you find that the rest of the advert shows up and immediately attracts you to read more. The colour contrast is particularly different and as the background I s very plain it makes the title easier to see and read. Analysis Pragmatic Illustrious Red Eye catching Inviting to teenagers or young women sumptuous Super model style Luscious Voluptuous Flawless Full/Big Plain White Biro Sketched Unconventional Doodles Tittles are bolder and darker Underlining used All blue and white except the pictures Pictures stick out Key words are highlighted Puns Sprightly Healthy Slimming Quick Diet Modern design Sketchy Irregular Joke Banter Tease I have selected these two adverts because I believe they are slightly unconventional and a little unusual. I am firstly analysing the different adverts, then comparing them to each and then I will be looking at the ages they are aimed at as they came from two different magazines aimed for two totally different age groups. ...read more.


This one is ver plain and the only colour is of the picture of the soup on the bottom left of the advert. Although this is the only colourful part of the advert it wasn't what first attracted me, the first two lines attracted me "How to become an INSTANT Soup a Model " I was attracted to this because it is done in big bold lettering a lot different from the rest of the magazine. The first line is quite bold but the keyword instant is highlighted more. The second line is the biggest and boldest with the key pun in it " Soup a Model ". This not only puts the idea of soup in your head but when you drink this soup you will become an instant super model, by loosing weight etc. This line is also underlined by a floral doodle, which brings your eyes to give this pun more attention. The advert then goes on to talk about two points the first one being ' the wardrobe' this is written in a slightly bold type. They probably used the wardrobe, as it is a key thing that links women to the thought of style and even super models. ...read more.


I really like the pun " Soup a Model" used throughout the two adverts it also tells us everything "Slim a Soup" is made out to be. I also like the picture of the lips I think it looks really good and it portray a good image in your mind. I don't like the dress idea that much as there isn't enough colour and makes the adverts look a little dull. I really like the fact that it is done in biro, as it is really different and unusual. My own advert: For this I will be using ideas from the two adverts I have been studying and design a similar one for an in-between age group of about 20-35. I will be keeping the layout and pun's the same but change points 1 and 2 to fit my new age group.
