The name of my magazine will be called Score 1 Magazine. I would like to design this after espn and sport illustrated. The goal of every sport is to score more than your opponent so I figured the name score 1 will represent all sport uniformly. Sport Illustration and Espn are both packed with these kind of sports such as basketball, soccer, baseball, football and ect. Visuals are important so Score 1 will have visually attractive images along with current topics.
The magazine sport illustrated was first created by Stuart Scheftel in 1936. His main target was the sportsman. He published issue monthly from 1936 to 1938 focusing on sports such as golf, tennis, and skiing with articles on major sports. Stuart later sold the name to dell publications in 1949 which released 9 issues under the name. Dell’s version covered baseball, basketball and boxing. In the 1940’s these magazine’s were monthly and did cover current events. So when Time inc. received the name their goal was to fill in that gap.
I am choosing a sport themed magazine. I choose this theme because I’m knowledgeable on the subject and I will be able to capture the interest of non-sport fans and sport fans clear cut information. I will publicly be posting current sports events to grab the attention of my viewers.
