Just another Journalism post…….Design is important as it attracts interest, designs that are colourful, attractive and eye catching interest the reader more. Design provides a focal point to get the point across and capture a concept. Design in regard to font is also significant, font needs to be clear in order to be easily read and understood. The font size should accommodate the reader; for older readers the font type should be bigger and clearer than those for a younger audience. What makes good font
- Legibility- Legibility is important to ensure that the document can be readable.
- Kerning (spaces between letters)- too tight or too loose means that the word is difficult to read, it’s important that the space between the letters is just right.
- Consistent characteristics- The width of the letters should be consistent avoid letters that are too wide or too thin.
