Promotional Adverts from magazines analysis

1. Laura Marling

This promotional poster for Laura Marling I find interesting because of the visual context of it. The graphics take up 3/4 of the page, which catches the eye with the detailing of the floral and then the man with the red flower in the middle of it. The main heading is in big red typography which again really stands out. Red is a more noticeable colour as we see it used everywhere on warning signs and other promotional texts. The whole of the page is used with the layout there is hardly any gaps between the writing and graphics.The simple typography makes it easy to read and there isn't much writing, just bullet points to just get the message out there and straight to the point.

2. Friendly Fires

The visual aspects of this poster is really the main point of it as its really straight to the point. Simple typography and because of the bright colours they can get away with using text over the image, so isn't so distracting. Also the text is quite large so is easy to read from afar. Though image is what will capture the viewers eye and draw them into reading and finding out more with what it is about. The composition of the image work well, with it being bottom heavy your eyes are drawn to the text as well.
