having text mounted on the same colour is a way to show that the text belongs together even if it isn't touching. This could be a way to have the mast head for the magazine.
What I like about this image is how the text is mounted on a stand, this would be a good way to have a mast head or main cover line as it would stand out on the page
Colour scheme is always important on a magazine, an example of the importance of colour is that from looking at this it makes it stand out as it is bright and you can tell what genre of music it is from the style
Colours in this image are all clashing, this is a technique to make things stand out. It would be good to keep this in mind when designing the magazine.
Hand drawn text always stands out as it is usually individual looking, this would be a good style to use for a main cover line.
