I am going to create a magazine cover for VIBE magazine. Vibe is an entertainment and music magazine that features some of the biggest hip hop, rnb, actor’s dancers and other entertainers in the world and since its launch in 1993. Vibe magazine is targeted at the urban followers of the hip hop culture, and some believe if an artist hasn’t been on the cover they haven’t progressed to their fullest ability. My magazine cover will be a United Kingdom because since Vibe was launched there hasn’t been a United Kingdom artist to make the cover for one month so I am going to create a design to what a United Kingdom artist will look like on the front cover. The United Kingdom Artist I'm thinking of doing a cover for is SKEPTA. Skepta is grime king who has been rapping or rhyming since 2004 and has built his name worldwide with very good songs and a couple of controversial ones as well. I'm going to create my magazine front cover on Adobe InDesign, but I am going to edit every photo I download or I intend to use on Photoshop. The reason I am going to create my cover on InDesign is because in design is very good for creating things like posters, magazines and etc. and I also know how to use the program at a basic level which is an advantage because I do not know how to use Photoshop very well. My target audience are teenagers to early adults from the ages of 14 to 25 who are in the working sector or who are in fulltime education. This magazine is intended for people who like to listen to hip hop music, and since the voice of vibe is to communicate to teenagers, my front cover is going to be created in a way to suit that age range.
On this screen shot I have opened up Photoshop which is on the left side and Google on the right. In this screen shot I'm going to show how I upload a picture from Google, so that I can edit it on Photoshop.
I have searched for Skepta on google and down the images this image has appeared. I like this image a lot...
