Welcome to my Media Studies blog. For my Foundation portfolio I will be creating an original design of a music magazine. The plan that I have is to create a music magazine based around the genre of Rock. I have knowledge of the conventions of this genre as I have read various rock magazines such as ‘Kerrang!’ and ‘Rocksound’. Throughout this blog I will be posting about my research on what goes into making a magazine and how that magazine then sits on the shelves in a newsagent. I will be creating and designing the front cover, contents page as well as double feature page spread.

Throughout the blog I will be referencing where I have found my research.

All images are able to be enlarged simply by clicking on them.

The posts on my blog are categorised into sections so you can see each section easily. These sections can be found at the side of each post.

The categories are:

  • Introduction
  • Research
  • Questionnaires
  • Pre-Production
  • Production
  • Post-Production
  • Final Pages
  • Analysis
