Some of the things we covered during the last class included some we should not do when dealing with type;

  • Don’t use horizontal scaling
  • Don’t use vertical scaling
  • When using colored type on a colored background, make sure the colors of the two have a good contrast.

We didn’t watch these videos in class but these will illustrate some of the topics we discussed.
