I have chosen to analyse this particular article from NME as it personally attracted me as a reader and i wanted to use influence when creating my own DPS. The DPS is filled with the majority of images. This attracts a young audience as more visual context and less text is what draws in the younger age groups. I would say that this article is most likely aimed at readers aged between 16-18 year olds as the bands and celebrities featured are fan based of people at a young age. For example, the skins cast is featured and it is a programme featuring 16-18 year olds and also watched by this age group.On the left page (top right) there is also an image of the celebrity Noel Fieldings from the mightly boosh literlally jumping into a croen of teenagers which also indicates the article being aimed at this age group.
The right page of the DPS is where all the main text is. However there is also a side bar with small images for each bit of information which makes the text stand out more and also attractive to look at. Clearly this double page spread has used every technique to draw in the target audience by making every part of the DPS look eye catching and interesting to look at.
The main colour theme of this DPS would be black, whit, and red. This is a constant theme throughout the magazine as the front cover and main logo of 'NME' uses these colours.
The text in the magazine has a very casual tone using some colloquial words and even swear words which appeals to a young audience. it also has some direct languige which can draw in readers and make them feel personal and exclusive. I would like to take inspiration from this DPS onto my own as i am attracted to the idea of having a casual tone to my text as this attracts my target audience of readers ages between 16-20.
