  • 1. How I attract my audience Evaluation question six

2. Target audience CABINET IS A MAGAZINE TARGETTING ITSELF AT THE16-24 AGE RANGE, BUDDING AND CURRENT DJS,AND PEOPLE WITHIN THE INDIE SOCIAL GROUP. ITHIS IS A FAKE FACEBOOK TIMELINE IMADE TO DEMONSTRATE THE SORT OFPERSON WHO WOULD READ CABINET. 3. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO 16-24 YEAROLDS? FIRSTLY, THE ONLINE PRESENCE. CABINET IS AMAGAZINE THAT HAS A STRONG ONLINE BASE, ANDTHIS SHOULD BE SOMETHING THAT APPEALS TO THEAGE GROUP AS THESE PEOPLE KNOW THE MOSTABOUT THE SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS CABINET EXISTSON AND ARE THE BIGGEST USERS. IT IS A MAGAZINE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WITHYOUNG PEOPLE! THE COVER MODEL OLLIE K ISSOMEONE WHO IDOLISES THIS AGE GROUP WITH HISHUMOUR, FASHION AND 4. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO 16-24 YEAROLDS?TO ADD TO THE POINT ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA, THECONTENTS PAGE IS DELIBARATELY LAID OUT LIKE A TUMBLRDASHBOARD, WITH PICTURES IN A GRID FORMAT AND(PAGE) NUMBERS OVERLAYING THEM. YOUNG PEOPLESHOULD RECOGNIZE THIS ICONIC CONVENTION ANDTHEREFORE THE MAGAZINE SHOULD APPEAL TO THEM.I FURTHERED THE TECHNOLOGICAL THEME THROUGHOUT INMY HOUSE STYLE, WITH THE DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD TAKINGA TECHNOLOGICAL LOOK TO IT ALSO. AGAIN MAKING ITAPPEALING TO YOUNG PEOPLE WHO RECOGNIZE AND AREIN TOUCH WITH THESE SORTS OF CONVENTIONS. 5. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO 16-24 YEAROLDS? I ALSO USED PHOTO MANIPULATION IN THEMAGAZINES PHOTOGRAPHY TO ENTICE PEOPLE INTHIS AUDIENCE. THE EFFECTS I GAVE A LOT OF THEPHOTOS, PARTICULARLY ON THE CONTENTS PAGE,HAVE AN EDITED VINTAGE LOOK ABOUT THEM. THISIS AN EFFECT THAT IS VERY POPULAR WITH YOUNGPEOPLE AT THE MOMENT AND SO THEY SHOULD SEETHIS AS AN ATTRACTIVE POINT TO THE MAGAZINE. 6. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO DJS/BUDDINGDJS? FIRSTLY ITS A DANCE MUSIC MAGAZINE!!! HOWEVERTHERE IS A DANGER THAT THIS WOULD NOT COMEACROSS ON FIRST GLANCE! SO I HAD TO DO A LOTTO ENSURE THIS DIDNT HAPPEN. IN PARTS LIKE THE DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD I USEDLANGUAGE ASSOCIATED WITH DJING ANDPRODUCING MUSIC THAT WOULD ACT ASRECOGNISABLE TO POTENTIAL DJ AUDIENCES.WORDS LIKE FRUITY LOOPS (A MUSIC PRODUCINGSOFTWARE) AND MENTION OF TOP DANCE CLUBBOILER ROOM SHOULD ENSURE THAT CABINET ISON THE SAME LEVEL AS ITS READERS. 7. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO DJS/BUDDINGDJS? I CAREFULLY CHOSE MY FONTS TO SUIT THE DJAUDIENCE. THE FONTS FOUND IN THE MAGAZINE(PARTICULARLY ON THE FRONT COVER) ARE VERYROBOTIC IN DESIGN AND THEREFORE LOOKTECHNOLOGICAL. BEING A GENRE WITH ITSPRINCIPLES IN TECHNOLOGY THIS DESIGN OF FONTSHOULD HELP APPEAL TO THE DJ AUDIENCE. FOR MYMASTHEAD I USED LOADED AND I USED THE FONTALIEN ENCOUNTERS ON THE FRONT PAGE BOTHOF WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON DAFONT. 8. WHAT ATTRACTS IT TO DJS/BUDDINGDJS? ON MY CONTENTS PAGE I ALSO HAD A SUBSCRIPTIONOFFER OFFERING PEOPLE WHO SUBSCRIBE TO CABINETTHE CHANCE TO GET SOME EXPENSIVE DJ SOFTWARE(TRAKTOR) FREE. THIS WILL APPEAL TO DJS ESPECIALLYTHOSE BUDDING ONES BECAUSE IT IS AN OFFER THATWOULD BE VERY EXCITING TO THEM. ALSO ON MY CONTENTS PAGE I USED THE ICONIC IMAGETO DJS OR ANY MUSIC FAN OF A HEADPHONE JACK INPLACE OF A BULLET POINT. ORIGINALLY I PLANNED TO USE THE ALSO ICONIC IMAGEOF VINYL TO REPLACE OLLIES PUPILS IN HIS EYES THOUGH THIS DIDNT LOOK GREAT SO I CHANGED IT. 9. PHOTOGRAPHY 10. PHOTOGRAPHY I ENSURED THAT OLLIE WOULD BE LOOKING AT THECAMERA FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH ON MY FRONTCOVER. THE EYE CONTACT FROM THIS WOULD BEREALLY USEFUL IN DRAWING ANY AUDIENCE IN. BUT HOW DOES THE PHOTOGRAPHY APPEAL TO MYSPECIFIC AUDIENCES? I TOOK A LOT OF PHOTOS ON THE DAY AND THATMEANT A LOT OF SEPERATING THE WHEAT FROM THECHAFF. 11. Why would the photos I used be better than other photos I took?1. 2. 12. Why would the photos I used be better than other photos I took? PHOTO 1 IS NOT AS GOOD AS PHOTO 2 (THE ONE IUSED FOR MY FRONT COVER). I FEEL PHOTO 2 IS BETTER FOR A NUMBER OFREASONS. FIRSTLY, OLLIE IS MAKING EYE CONTACT,WHICH ACTS AS A PULL FACTOR TO THE AUDIENCE. IFEEL PHOTO 1 DOES NOT SUIT THE GENRE EITHER,AND OLLIES POSE IS RESONANT OF A MORE POPPYGENRE AS THOUGH HE IS LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER. ALSO, I DELIBERATELY SET UP THE IMAGE FROM MYORIGINAL FLAT PLANS. THE WIPING NOSE ACTIONHAS CONNOTATIONS OF DRUGS AND THE CROSSON HIS HAND HAS CONNOTATIONS OF REFORM.
