DESIGN

Good communication starts with the content and ends with presenting it the way readers need to get it. Making content usable involves designing visual and physical elements for best function. It may also involve adding graphs, charts, or photographs to the text, or designing presentation slides to accompany the text. Aesthetics are part of the equation, but so is knowledge of how people read and how white space, headings, image placement, font, and so much more translate information into usable communication.
