Seventeen magazine is a teen-oriented publication geared toward girls. I’m guilty of reading Seventeen (for most of my life actually), and I can honestly say this magazine highly appeals to me and many of my friends. It’s colorful, striking, and always has a pretty, famous girl on the front. After learning more about magazines in class, I find that this magazine is actually pretty annoying to look at. Headlines sell magazines, and this one has a lot of them. Although the color scheme is consistent, it’s overly bright. The diversity of fonts bothers me as well, making it look messy.

So I can now say Graphics class will never allow me to look at my favorite magazines the same way again.
