For my preliminary task I adopted a number of common conventions which are used very often in magazines. For instance I have included a banner and masthead. These are very basic features but help in making the magazine look genuine. The image suits the theme of a magazine centred around education with the model working on a computer. However there is no inclusion of facial expression which lessens the magazine’s appeal. For the contents page I have included information relevant for a such a page, like page details and upcoming events. I have also included an editor’s note which is a feature that is not used in every magazine.
