Join Sue Jenkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Type legibility, part of Designing Websites from Photoshop to Dreamweaver.
(swoosh stinger)…- [Narrator] What five changes did you make to…improve the legibility of this type?…Here's what I did.…First I added paragraph breaks after each section.…One after contact, another after create together,…and one more after your message.…Next I changed the word contact to Georgia Italic 36 point…so it reads as a clear Heading 1.…
I then emphasized the line that begins with for email…by changing it to Georgia Italic and 14 point.…After that I made the labels email and phone both bold.…Lastly I made the measure for the entire text block narrower…from 700 pixels wide to 500 pixels wide for improved…legibility and then I moved the entire text block…over to the right.…This is just one possible solution…to create a hierarchy with type.…
Whatever your solution always strive…for making the copy both readable and legible.…
