  1. Intro to Multimedia Typography Design -excerpts from The Non-Designer’s Design Book

  2. Basic Principles • Proximity • groups things together • Alignment • connects visually to everything else • Repetition • provides consistency to the product • Contrast • adds visual interest

  3. Proximity - Illustrated The principle of proximity says that related items should be grouped together. Move related items close to each other and add separation between items that are not similar. This ensures that a group is formed rather than a selection of unrelated elements. The proximity of items communicates relationship. • Bugs • Booklouse • Box Elder Bugs • Carpenter ants • Carpet Beetles • Clothes Moths • Clover Mites • Cockroaches • Orchard Bees • Pharaoh Ants • Phorid Flies • Pill Bugs • Bugs • Booklouse • Box Elder Bugs  • Carpenter ants • Carpet Beetles • Clothes Moths • Clover Mites • Cockroaches • Orchard Bees • Pharaoh Ants • Phorid Flies • Pill Bugs • Carpenter Ants • Reproductive winged female • Reproductive winged male • Minor workers • Major workers • Carpet Beetles • Varied carpet beetles • Black carpet beetles • Phorid Flies • Humpback flies • Drain flies • Carpenter Ants • Reproductive winged female • Reproductive winged male • Minor workers • Major workers • Carpet Beetles • Varied carpet beetles • Black carpet beetles • Phorid Flies • Humpback flies • Drain flies VS: From: Thinkgeek.com

  4. Proximity Errors • What to avoid: • Placing too many separate elements on a page • Sticking element in the corners and in the middle of the pages • Leaving equal amounts of white space between elements (unless each group is part of a subset) • Allowing confusion between related material • Creating relationships with elements that don’t belong together

  5. Alignment Every element should be visually linked, or aligned, with something else. This presents a cohesive look. Be conscious of items placed on the page –align it with something else, regardless of the distance. • Avoid: • Avoid using more than one text alignment • Reduce the use of centered alignment (especially online)

  6. Repetition Unify and add visual interest by repeating some aspect of the design. Repeat anything that someone will recognize visually. This can include type styles, spatial relationships, etc. • Avoid: • Too much repetition - it may annoy or overwhelm the viewer • Excessive contrast of type styles

  7. Contrast Use contrast to design something that is strongly visual and provides organizational hierarchy. Apply this when you want the elements to be very different. Use size, weight, color, direction, form and structure • Avoid: • Everything having the same weight and strength • Weak contrast – make it strong

  8. Typography Rules • Avoid using all capitals with Script fonts • Limit the number of serif fonts • Align text as much as possible • Group text together, aligning left, center or right Don’t use Scripts in all caps Don’t use scripts in all caps Don’t use Scripts in all caps Don’t use scripts in all caps

  9. Go- Create Effective Communication!
