Kings Of Leon:
This is a full page magazine advert that the band has used. This magazine advert from Kings Of Leon looks quite basic and simple. The colours are quite interesting because they aren't too bright and overpowering but they do attract the audiences attention. The style of writing goes well with the background image but in the darker colour at the bottom it is a little harder to read so the audience will need to focus more on reading it. This design of this advert relates to the text, since the album is called "Come Around Sundown" it makes sense to use the sunset feel. Because Kings Of Leon are a well known band they have used a full page to advertise their CD because they can afford it.
This look has more going on in the advert. The title of the CD has been shown in the image with all the little dots of lights has been spread around and used to make the advertising more interesting and catch the attention of the target audience. This advert has also used quotes from reviews to make the album seem worth while to buy and listen to this album, also having the rating put on also adds to make it sound really good to listen to.
There isn't a big use of colours in this advert, their is a lot of black used but it makes all the gold colours and the writing stand out clear and makes it easier to read.
This advert is similar to the Ellie Goulding one, the colour scheme of this has stayed to three colours so it doesn't over complicate the picture and also so it doesn't look too busy. Using the black and white background helps the writing stand out clearly and the font of writing works well with the style in which Jessie J's name is in, it all works together. The layout of this is neat and not too much. There isn't much writing on this just a little bit about the album and mentions one song that is included, the website has been used this is used to promote the artist and make you want to look more into what she does.
