Introduction To Lifestyle Magazines

Identify the different 'types' of content in magazine

The main contents in the "Contents Magazine" are Shoes, Personal Stylists, Clothes, Fashion, Beauty. These contents are aimed at women and how they look and what they wear. For example the personal stylist story is saying you need shoes "The fanciest footwear for twinkle toes"

Discuss the layout of the page. From your analysis what gender and type of person is this magazine for?

The layout of the page is pictures at the top and text at the bottom. The pictures are all in different sizes and the women seems to be the most important because they made her bigger. This magazines target audience is women because of what they are advertising. The designer has made the women bigger because they want people to see that you can be pretty like her. The text is numbered so that the audience can go to what they are looking and not flick through all the ads. The designer didn't make the magazine very colorful so that younger people may not buy it, but older more stylish people will buy it because it is very slick. The bold text catches peoples eye so that they can read it and maybe like what they see and then they would be forced to buy it.

How would someone hope to benefit from buying this magazine?

People would benefit from buying this magazine by getting good looks, and following what the designer has typed on it. The audience would hope to be a changed person  when they read it because they could find something they like and then buy what will change them. They could learn new words from gossip areas and ads. Some people will want to get with a different group of friends and they want to change there appearance and the only way is to use the magazine.
