EVALUATION - (How does your media product represent particular social groups?)
I used two "regular" people on my front cover to appeal to working class people as their rise to fame has been a success like a rags to riches story. Teenagers will relate to her as they could believe they can become famous.
The way they dress can influence teenagers in a certain way to dress as natalie and sam are dressed in an individual style. The magazine fits the indie rock genre so people who follow indie rock will be interested in the magazine. i have included names such as "dave grohl" this attracts people to read it as dave grohl is one of the biggest names in the music industry. Rock is dominated by men, women do not really play a big part in rock but i have broke conventions and made natalie lead singer of "plectrum". But over the last few years women have started to appear more in bands, but we still see them used as sex models in music videos by male artists like queens of the stone age. Hayley williams is now the lead singer of a very successful band which shows women can become as big as men.
My main audience is men that is why there is a female on the front cover and mainly men are interested in rock. I have priced it at £2.99 so it is affordable for working class people and so the magazine makers make money.
