Here is the YM magazine. The colours are very pink and vibrant. This gives off the immature, silly and girlish vibe. It obviously appeals to teenage girls more. The celebrity on the front is Avril Lavigne, a popular American singer. The layout is usual to many magazines, sentences down every side, the more important stories are in bold writing, meaning they are the biggest stories for teenage girls. The language is very informal, appealing more to teenage girls. There are a lot of sentences saying things like,'Get Sexy, Shiny Hair', appealing to girls as they want to look perfect. The font is very bold, so it stands out more.
This is Time Magazine. The colours here are deep red, meaning seriousness. This could connote that this is for business men/women who want to know what is going on in the world. The layout is much more organised and sophisticated than other magazines. This appeals more to an older, business person. The celebrity on the front cover is Barack Obama, the president of America, perhaps the most important person in the world. This once again appeals to business men as they want to know about him. There are news headlines such as 'Nuclear Rogues and how to Control Them'. This is more appealing to people who want to know about politics and topics such as that. The font is much more basic than the rest, so it appeals to more laid back people. The language used appeals to more sophisticated city workers, as it talks about the president.
