Teenage magazines are widely read around the UK. Magazines are a way of life, whether it corresponds pop or computer games. Teenage magazines continue to develop as a major information, entertainment and advertising medium. There are always new magazines competing with each other to boost up their profits. Magazines exist by discovering and analysing social attitudes and selling their products to people attracted to them. Teenage magazines clearly try and target a specific age group.
This niche audience will change their tastes in magazines so magazines have to stay loyal to their audience by designing new magazines or elaborating the old ones.
Teen magazines contain aspects of what young people go through in their lives; young people follow celebrities so it would favour the public to follow in their footsteps of fame and fortune. Teenage magazines have risen considerably in the past few years. Women’s magazines continue to be strong sellers with brand titles such as Bliss and Sugar. There are now a huge number of titles in the sector of Teen Magazines.
After a rise in popularity in the mid 1990’s, magazines saw mixed fortunes for the market. The turning point came when Sugar launched their new magazine in 1994, then a rush of new titles like that of Sugar started sweeping the nation. There has been a recent increase in the growth of men’s magazines; the most popular titles such as FHM and Loaded represent the concept of men. There is a big difference between girls’ tastes in magazines to boys’.
Girls consider more personal issues, as they might be more sensitive then boys.
Gossip and Music is the types of magazines that girls or young women usually read. Young men read a variety of magazines corresponding computer games, women and fast cars. Young men like reading what they enjoy doing. This is the reason why there tends to be new magazines on the market, so that they can pursue the needs of the niche audience. I have designed a Teenage Car Magazine, which appeals to young people aged from 11-18. I have designed my magazine so it is simple to understand and very attractive to attract the reader.
I have included many features plus extra to fulfil the requirements needed to produce an outstanding, eye-catching magazine. The front cover of my super car magazine is very eye-catching and also contains colour. The brand identity of the magazine is called WICKED. I have also included a main image to represent the main article in the magazine. I have deliberately made this picture stand out to show a preview of what kind of shots I can achieve. Another image is also inputted into the page to show that there is to be another article on that very image.
I have included preview captions of what is to be expected in the magazine. The bar code is neatly placed in the corner of the page to clarify that it is on sale. The price and date of each magazine must be clearly seen without confusion. The content page that I have designed is very clear and understandable. I have designed my contents in a very simple manner so it is easier to allocate the pages or reviews that you wish to. My articles and reviews are very colourful and attractive to interest the reader. The borrowed car images from the Internet and all the statistics I needed to write a good article on fast cars.
I laid out my writing in the simplest yet most effective way I could think of. Magazines verify their styles in order to attract a niche audience. Magazines gain more publicity if they change their styles every so often, this is because the target audience starts to get bored of the original style and want a change. Magazines are sued if they publish any material that is not true or which uses propaganda. Images produced in magazines can only be true and be backed up by statements or captions. Any misleading signs in the imagery department can sue you.
Magazine publishers are able to cater to small-scale tastes and interests. Magazines associated with the development in technology (computers) have become a big part of today’s society. The aspects of magazines can be related to the ownership of the business. Companies often publish magazines with a wide diversity of business and media interests in television, radio, newspapers and on the internet. Magazines are always planned before being produced. At the point of production, they are assessed according to the material published.
A good copy of the magazine is printed into how many copies they need to issue. This process can involve a lot of money regarding printing values. They also take into account how many pages are being printed in each magazine. A magazine takes about a month to design, produce, print and distribute. A teenage magazine can be distributed anywhere in the chosen areas. Newsagents and shopping centres are the most likely to be selling top brand magazines. Teenage magazines can range from a price of $1 to a quite high $5. The average teenager buys a magazine for $3 to $4.
