Ch 3 contrast

Color

Different colors draw users attention in different ways. Color can be used to easily distinguish between equal levels of information as well as organize structures in color coding to contrast what is most important and what is sub dominant and subordinate more in a way to connect these three between different types between other equal levels and even connections to larger or smaller relevant data.

size

One of the most obvious ways of ordering information. Larger font instantly communicates importance. This is most often used in headlines because of its ability to coordinate levels of importance. Strong sense of Dominance, Sub-dominance, and Sub-ordinance.

Shape

I think shape should be included in contrast because it could separate relevant information in how your eyes are draw from one shape to another. Say for instance a square block of information as opposed to an organic flowing form that leads your eyes to the next piece of information, as well as connecting interrelated info in meaningful ways to "guide your eyes".

Font

Font can order words and distinguish between information parts that either connect with each other or are intended to be headlines that are easily distinguished from their body content. Font can also change how words are read and how fast it takes to read them. This allows different fonts to emphasize key elements in body content that can be manipulated to serve different purposes.

CH 1 outcomes

learn how to create my own A to Z process to determine how sites and sub pages should be structured

Ch 2 Emphasis

Informational hierarchies

how to create distinctions in information for guides

Keeping consistent when organizing different levels of importance

structure creation to use for developing a grid

Ch 4 balance

In this chapter, I gained a better understanding of the importance balance has in a design layout. When first deciding on what sort of layout to use, either symmetrical or asymmetrical, it is important to take into consideration what sort of message you are trying to communicate to your audience, and which sort of layout will best communicate that message. Symmetrical layouts seem to look more formal and sort of ordinary compared with asymmetrical, which to me, always appear to be more exciting in how they layout attracts my eye and guides it over the page.

Ch 5 Alignment

Grid Systems

This chapter helped me to understand how grid systems will help me focus on what information the viewer needs to know, and what column grid will work best

incorporating consistent layouts for equal level information

I gained an understanding of when to break the grid so as to sort of highlight the info that I want to stick out in the viewers mind

Ch 5 helped me to understand where and when I should use different text alignments as well as what the more advanced alignments can be used for

Ch 6 Repetition

This chapter was a very good resource on how repetition can enliven and connect important information critical to your message and its delivery. There are many different ways described in this chapter, but most are actually the topics of the last few chapters like color, emphasis, size, form, type, etc. and how those concepts come together with repetition.

Ch 7 Flow

This was a very informing chapter that really helped me to understand how to better improve my layouts to more easily transmit my message to my audience. The research I did in looking for websites to bookmark and ads for the rhetorical analysis reallly helped me to recognize how flow is used across different media. Another piece of important information is how to use visual and verbal flow and their effects on a page. When trying to get a message across on a page, I know that in order for me to present information with different priorities, the flow of the layout depends upon the particular message and determines how it will be interpreted in the audiences mind. That is extremely CRITICAL to any design so it must never be overlooked.
