Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Text formatting, part of Designing a Digital Magazine.
…Let's consider the type formats.…Firstly the color.…For my type I'm using a dark gray rather than a solid black.…On a tablet, solid black and pure white can look stark.…For this reason I'm using an off white as the background color.…For the type size I'm using 16 point on 24 point leading.…Now that may seem very large if you're accustomed to working with print.…The smallest type size I'm using is 14 point which…I'm using for these navigational items and for the sidebar text.…
Specific to the use of fonts on screen, I've opened up the letter spacing.…On the left, you see the normal settings for letter…spacing and, on the right, the settings that I have applied.…I just want to point out what those are.…If I come to my Justification settings…which I've incorporated into the style definition.…We can see that I've increased the word-space from 100% to 105%.…And the desired letter space from 0 to 5%.…
And I think doing so just makes…for a slightly more comfortable reading experience.…
