Esquire magazine analysis

This Front cover of Esquire is a full body shot of Cameron Diaz, which again is another provocative image. This image focuses on Cameron and what she is wearing, the white stool against the white background shows that the stool is not essential, the masthead and her clothing are black with everything else being white so it stands makes it stand out. Most of the esquire magazines are models on a white background, this front cover in particular does not include any features on the front cover or any strap lines, and only includes her name in very small print, this adds more focus to her as a model. Which means there is a lot of negative space.

 This contents page includes another seductive image of Cameron Diaz, with a changed outfit, this image is in colour just like the other small images on the page as its not the main focus on the page the writing is. It includes subheadings on this page for example it include 'Regulars'. The layout is in columns this is common for most magazines to use but its simple and effective, this magazine in particular has all the writing in black on the content pages but certain important words/ phrases in a colour which usually links with the image for example the text colour in this content page is blue like Cameron's Denim Jacket. The logo is also included on every contents page in the esquire magazines.

This double page spread includes another full body image of Cameron Diaz, the writing is worked into the pose she is doing. And again the font colour goes with the denim shorts she is wearing, and the text on the right page that is a red colour complements they bodysuit she is wearing. Like the contents page columns have been used to make the double page look simple, so that the full body image jumps out of the page.

  1. A decent analysis Emily. For the highest marks you should analyse the actual content/focus/tone of the dps. Also the presentation of this information could be improved so you actually annotate the features you have analysed.
