Amanda-Compare/Contrast



For this Project I chose Vogue Magazine and Cosmopolitan Magazine. These two magazines are different in many ways as Vogue talks about much more clothing than Cosmopolitan does. Cosmopolitan talks much more on tips about your love life. Vogue has a much bigger font size than Cosmopolitan does with much more bold lettering. Vogue has less amount of subheading than Cosmopolitan does which draws your eye more toward Cosmopolitan. Vogues color scheme is less colorful as white is just a plain color which is kind of dull toward your eye site. Vogue has only used about three different colors which is also very dull toward a persons eyesight. Cosmopolitan has a very bright color with bold bright lettering that stands out more. Cosmopolitan has about five different colors on their page which also stands out more. Natalie Portman on the Vogue magazine has on more of a classy look as her dress is pink and her pose is more casual. Ashley Green on Cosmopolitan magazine has more of a casual look in a more revealing way, tying her button down shirt in the front and jean shorts.  Both Magazines have a fashion sense that goes along with all the headlines on these magazines. Even though both of these women on these magazines are wearing different clothes they have some sort of the same look and personality in the fashion sense. Between both of these magazines I would much rather chose the cosmopolitans because it would draw my eye more with the bright color and more headlines.

  2. I also picked up on the color scheme. Vogue like to keep a very classy and conservative image so their covers are usually more subdued in colors and fonts. Cosmopolitan is aimed at a younger audience that's "living it up" so they choose brighter, bolder ensembles for their layouts.

  3. The Cosmo cover stands out more than the vogue cover because of the color scheme. Good comparison.

  4. You are right about the colors. The one of the left the woman looks blended it a little whereas the Cosmo magazine it is more vibrant and more catching to the eye.

  8. Nice work, I agree that the Vogue Mag does seem kind of dull. While the Cosmo Mag takes on a bit of a brighter quality. Its good that you recognized the more subtle qualities of the Vogue magazine.

  9. I totally agree with you on the color schemes. I think the color schemes use are definitely targeting their intended audiences.
    Vouge seems to be more classy - The headlines are not "flashing" the topics to the viewer. Comsmopolitan seems to be using colors to "throw"
    at the viewer, but it is a little more reserved than say some of those tabloids you would see at the supermarket. Good job comparing and contrasting

  12. i like the serif font on Vogue rather than Cosmos nameplate, but Cosmo is trying to be 'modern.' I like how the matched the color of Natalie Portmans dress to the background, is very soft to the eye. While Cosmo is more bright and there.
