Research- creating and selling a health magazine.

Extracts from this document...


Overall Research Overall the research I conducted I found the following elements that I have outlined below. Firstly, I found out the steps involved into producing a magazine which enabled the group to make their work easier as they would know what to do. Also, I found out how to create a bar code in Macromedia Fireworks as bar codes appear on every magazine that is published. Secondly, I found existing health magazines contain specific pages such as a contents page, an editorial etc. These pages were the main pages that every health magazine contained and this is what the group's magazine should contain. ...read more.


Most magazines contain a logo and have a catchphrase as I found with most of the health magazines. The logos used for the health magazines were mainly of fruits which were made to stand out by the colour schemes used and the catchphrases used were all to do with exercising, healthy eating and drinking right. Also, the colour scheme used for each health magazine was another aspect I found.

Finally, I found that the software used by companies to produce magazines is called Microfilmaker. Also, I learnt that the magazine on health can be purchased online from websites like Amazon or shops such as WH Smith. ...read more.

    It is a factual statement that there are "real-life stories" but whether these stories "make you laugh and cry" is just a matter of opinion. These unrealistic promises make the magazine seem more interesting and worthwhile to read. Several ambiguous headings describe the stories that the magazine contains.

    On the other hand, throughout the advert I was unaware of the name of the product; because it didn't mention "Skoda Roomster" anywhere. However, with "Mitsubishi Outlander" the name of the product is the first thing you read; also it is bold and eye-catchy so you want be able to miss it.

    After all the focus groups and teaser trailers the production then put the TV show on one pilot episode. This would then show the audience's reaction and help understand if they should carry on making the rest of the show or just leave it but it depends on the budget of the TV show.
