Extracts from this document...


Media assignment-Vodafone The media in general aim to inform and interest the audience, which consists of many different types. The magazine advert that I am going to analyse is advertising Vodafone. The advertisement is aimed at young teenagers and under 30's because the advertisement is of a phone and only teenagers and under 30's would want to show off their phone. It is aimed at both females and males because it says "Good luck with the cup it's trying to say good luck with the football match and mostly males are interested in football where as they've used a good looking guy 'David Beckham' and girls would love to have the same mobile phone as a famous and good looking star.

They're using David Beckham as a ploy to sell the phone also because David Beckham is associated with expensive things. The advert is on 2 pages and on each paper there is an object or a person who's is close up which is trying to say this is the thing you have to focus on. ...read more.
