Double paged spread Wiz
I chose this double paged spread due to the fact I like the look and design of it, the cap worn by the rapper Wiz Khalifa matches the gold/black colour pallet which runs throughout this article. The main cover line has been cleverly edited from 'UK' to 'WK' using a bold black font which immediately suggests to the reader that the purpose of this article is to talk about the affect that his music has had on the UK rap scene. Furthermore the words 'HOW HIGH?' are printed as a subtitle underneath which links with the stereotype that all rappers smoke Marijuana and that he featured in the film 'How High?' with Snoop Dogg, this is a deliberate tactic to obtain the readers interest. In addition the text used is all in standard font, apart from an oversized gold 'B' at the beginning which is used to intrigue the reader into reading the smaller text.
