Text: Cover of an issue of the magazine Brides.

Some elements of this text to consider:

  • The use of text in a large font and often in all capitals (everything except for some parts of the bottom of the text are in all caps). This is common for a attention-grabbing magazine cover.
  • The dark masthead (“Brides”) located over the lighter colored hat which makes the name of the magazine stand out.
  • The cover lines are oriented vertically on either side of the image of the model.
  • The profile shot accentuates the cover model’s thin waist
  • The main cover line on the lower right “Let’s Go…” is placed far away from other text on the cover so that it sticks out.
