This is a analysed contents page from mojo. The original colours are black and red as this has been photocopied. This shows a typical mojo layout and has a basic colour scheme. They use the same layout of images in uncut magazines as they do here. At the side of the magazine it shows little features of whats in the magazine. There is also a advertisment at the bottom of the page for the readers. At the bottom it is not numbered in chronological order as its seperated and the same font is used. It is banded in certain blocks, this makes it recognisable for the reader. There is a small caption on photo's to show what pages they are on and the date is also shown.
This is another magazine contents I have analysed. The big photograph frames the page and the title is bold and stands out. It has the same colour scheme in the magazine and shows the date for the reader. It is numbered showing what page a certain topic is on, however the numbers on the contents page are not in chronological orde, this is common in magazines. The clothing the artist is wearing links to the artist that he actually is, he is also recognisable to the reader. It has a typical uncut layout, with the same colours. The magazine also uses the same font on the contents page.
This is a contents page from Word. The red is bold and stands out to the reader. It is banded in certain blocks so it is recognisable to the reader. You can see a preformance picture common in magazines and it uses recognisable people so it interests the reader. The bottom block allows the reader to see what the writers stuff is about, it shows their pedigree as they are familiar with the magazine. It is unusual for magazines to do this. You can see in the bottom corner that it advertises the CD of the month. It has a house style which is simple colours such as the red and has a typical layout. The numbers are not in chronological order, as it is put into blocks.
This is the over side of mojo that I analysed, once again it is a typical mojo layout. There is the same subheadings on every contents page for mojo, this is easy for the reader to recognise. They use a basic colour scheme and it is banded into certain blocks so it is easier for the reader. The numbered pages are not in chronological order, you can see that they use the same layout of images in mojo magazines, it always has a concert image, old artists, two albumns and a painting. The bottom block allows the readers to see what the writers stuff is about, it shows their pedigree as they are familiar with the magazine. It is unusual for magazines to do this.

The next contents page I have analysed is from Word, which is also another magazine that is very recognisable with the puplic. They use a particular layout in the contents page seperating topics into sections. They also make subheadings stand out so it is easier for the audience to read and easier for them to find what they are looking for. You can also see that there is lots of pictures used for what stories the magazine contains, this is common in magazines. The original colour is red and orange, the red is bold stands out and attracts hte reader. There is a picture of an editor and a letter from the editor which is common on contents pages in magazines. There are numbered pages showing what page a certain topic is on, however the numbers on the contents page is not in chronological order, this is common convention in magazines. It keeps things that are to do with each other together. At the side of the page you can see the credits for the magazine, this is not common for magazines.
