June 7, 2012

Typography examples

Same text, different message?

Learning and applying visual design principles can greatly improve your handouts and presentations. Typography is an aspect of design that affects all text-based materials.

If you don’t know what a serif is – or why you should care – take a look at two samples at right. They clearly have a different feel, don’t they?

To get started learning about typography, read LifeHacker’s Non-Designer’s Guide to Typefaces and Layout. It explains typefaces, use of color, and other topics. For more, check out The Non-Designer’s Design Book, now in its third edition.
