  7. 7. Content and Words Your message First time viewers Be concise Title Ability to stand alone Use a logical pathway Not too much text Tell a story Author, affiliations and contact details
  8. 8. Layout and Colour Try to create a visual sequence No need to fill every inch white space is good Two/three main colours Be consistent e.g. Use one colour for all headings
  9. 9. Typeface 1. This is a big one. You have to develop a hierarchy in your designs typography. Use a hierarchy that makes sense. The headline should always be the biggest, boldest text. The sub- headline should be differentiated somehow. It doesnt have to be bold, but it should be larger than the other headline sections, if you have different body paragraphs. The body copy should be smaller, while still being legible. Any footnotes should be the smallest and placed at the bottom of the page, below the text. Also any asides should be made to stand out differently as well. You could use a different color, or you could italicize the text 2. This is a big one.
