Course Description

Ensure your writing has the strongest impact possible by learning how to successfully present user-friendly documents. Start with a brief overview of the four basic design principles (contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity) that appear in every well-designed document. Next learn about colour and font, and how choosing the right one can have a positive impact on your writing. Then, learn how to think critically about your design choices so you can apply these principles to numerous documents including creative writing, correspondence, brochures, reports, and websites through study, practice, peer and instructor feedback, and assignments.
