Myself, Megan Claydon, and Emmie Bryett (www.g324-sum2011-emmie-bryett.blogspot.com) two A2 pupils from Ilkley Grammar School, aged 17, are creating the a promotion package for the release of an album, to include a music promo video together with a cover for its release as part of an album digipak (CD/DVD package) and a magazine advertisement for the digipak (CD/DVD package.)

Example of adverts in Q magazine

We have looked at this months edition of Q magazine, and how they present there adverts. 


We also noticed that this months Q magazine had an article on the come back of "The Strokes" something similar to this could be done for Backstreet boys. 





Adverts inside the magazine 


On this advert for Noah And The Whale, there is the bands name, the name of the album, a quote from actual Q magazine on the article, when the album is released and the fact it includes there new single.

It is a simple advert, with black writing on a white background, with a picture of the group positioned in the centre, all looking in different ways, showing the individual aspects of the members, this is the sort of position and stances we could use for our magazine advert.

The band name is in a larger font, and stands out the most, as it is as the top of the image. 


On this advert for Clare Maguire, the image of herself stands out the most, with her dark hair and dark eyes, this links into the black writing on the magazine advert, and her red lipstick links into the writing which is in red. 

At the top in larger writing, is Q's magazine quote for the artist, there is then quotes from other newspapers/magazines, such as "The Guardian" and "The Observer" 

Her dark hair stands out on the white background. 

There is not much information, but it has the artists name and the album name.



The background is red, which stands out immediately with a cartoon/ artistic impression of Slash, this makes the advert quirky and fun, however this is not the type of advert we would use. 

The artists name is in black, and the font goes with the whole image of the advert, almost like it has been sprayed on. 

The writing is in white, saying when the CD/DVD is released, and that it includes a single, it also states when you can pre-order it from, a website for Slash and the record company.

In yellow it says that it is a deluxe edition and the fact that it includes three additional acoustic tracks, it then states what these tracks are, it also includes a bonus DVD, by showing the audience the bonus things, it will make people more likely to buy the CD.



This is almost like a newspaper style print of a photo, the print of the bands name and the albums name is the same as the image. 

It also shows where you can buy the album from, when the album is out, and where the band are playing, therefore this advert is not only promoting the album but the band itself.

It has a small image of the album cover on the left hand side, this is useful as people will know exactly what they are looking for when they go to buy the album.

It again has quotes from various magazines on their opinion on the album, this is widening the audience, as readers who read these other magazines/newspapers from Q will then consider buying the album.
