My two magazines that I am going to compare are OK USA and Woman’s Day, Eating Light. These two magazines are completely different in a number of ways. First, OK magazine is an entertainment magazine. Woman’s Day, Eating Light, magazine is geared more toward healthy living.
The first magazine that I am going compare is OK magazine. The front of the magazine has more pictures as well as bright bold colors. By having celebrity pictures, big, bright, bold colors, and large writing, this is to draw the customer in and entice them to purchase. This is also done to get the message across regarding what the magazine issue is all about. The major headline of this issue says “Exclusive” in bold white lettering on top of hot pink to make it stand out. Next in bright yellow you will read the headline “ Pregnant & Betrayed”, and the main photos are of Khole Kardashian and Kate Hudson.
The comparison magazine is Woman’s day, Eating Light, this magazine is inviting, but its front page is not as flashy as OK magazines. The font is a more subtle colors, bold but not as bold as the other magazine. The major image is a picture of food that takes up most of the page, so I am guessing the food is the main point of this issue making it the main image. There is a lot less writing on this magazine than the entertainment magazine. Also there are fewer images. This magazine puts page numbers next to the main headline verbiage for the convenience of the customer if they are looking for more info pertaining to the headline. Also, on the front of this magazine is a print ad to win a cruise.
These are a few of the major differences I noticed between the entertainment magazine OK, and the healthy living magazine by Woman’s Day, Eating Light.
