Conventions of Music Magazines

  • The music magazine Vibe does not use the typical date and issue number conventions. This challenges tradition ideas, hinting that the magazines' content might challenge the expected format of the usual music press. The front cover also includes a website address to connect with the readership.
  • The close up shot makes the reader feel as if they have a personal connection with the artist.
  • The front cover only uses two main colours, black and red, this adds an element of simplicity whilst at the same time making the page eye catching

   Kerrang clearly displays the barcode, date, issue number and website. It also features more than one artist, meaning that the reader has a less personal connection.
