What do you do?

Plus-Size-Magazine.com is a plus size fashion news website for curvy women, as well as for big and tall men. We bring unique contents to our readers, with exclusive interviews with brand designers, fashion deals to save money on plus size clothing and style advice to look great.
This design is for the cover of our new Kindle about makeovers for women over 40. The book needs a better cover than the current one. We need an English version and a French version (same design, but text in another language).

Describe the target audience for your print design

Target audience is made of females, aged 40 to 65. They are curvy and wear plus size clothing. They like fashion, but fashion does not seem to like them, as most stores do not cater to their size. Most fashion magazines do not address their needs either. Their income is average or slightly lower than average.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your print design?

- Finally a style book for curvy women
- It's Easy to look great without spending too much
- Pragmatic advice from the experts and readers of Plus-Size-Magazine.com
