Q1: What conventions have I used and why?
On my magazine cover I have used the celebrity Megan Fox. I have done this because she is probably a role model for many teenage girls and they probably want to look just like her. This will attract the buyer (that will probably be a teenage girl) and make them want to buy it cause it catches your eye.
Q2: What are the effects of my Layout, Typography, Colour choice and Language Choice?
On my magazine it is organized so that there is three small stories on the left and only one on the right hand side. This makes it visually balanced. The title of the magazine is positioned at the top of the magazine in the centre. My title has been made bold so that it catches the viewers eye and is very clear.
