1. SKILLS DEVELOPMENT 3ANNALISE TAYLOR 2. I found the font/logo of the band thatI was using on dafont.com Idecided to use their own logo because, asshown in this rock magazine they use thebands logo, which may stand out to theaudience more than just a list of bands thatthe reader will have to take time over andread before deciding they are interested inbuying the magazine. Where as using the logoon the front cover, I think is a good ideabecause its the most important part of themagazine as it will ultimately decide whethersomeone will pick up the magazine and buy itor not, so the logos here catches your eyestraight away from a distance and youllrecognise the bands instantly rather thanhaving to physically pick up the magazine andread them all. 3.

I added flash boxesby using the shape tool and putting it under the text layer. 5.
