Serif vs Sans: The Final Battle In Typography [Infographic] | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Within the typographic communities, people have debated on the issue: Do serifs contribute to the legibility of typefaces, and are sans serif typefaces less legible?

 

Like many things, these two different fonts have pros and cons. This infographic takes a look at the argument of serif vs sans serif...

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

Want to create an attractive infographic but don’t have the budget to hire a professional designer?

Then you should try using an infographic-creation tool.

If your small business is looking for an eye-catching and easy to comprehend way to teach, inform, and inspire others about its products and services, infographics might be a good solution. Infographics can be more effective and memorable than other ways to present data, making them particularly effective for online audiences.

To create an infographic, you should make a list of possible ideas that you want to get across, create the initial draft or skeleton, color scheme it, and research your content from authoritative sites. Then it’s time to select your design platform.

26 Interesting Infographics for Web Designers and Developers

26 Interesting Infographics for Web Designers and Developers | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, and are easy to understand.

Infographics are sources of interesting information, when you are in need of some. Reading boring, long, colorless articles isn’t so attractive and interesting than reading and viewing facts and numbers in an illustrated way. Not only an illustrated way, but a very creative, attractive and super-appealing way.

All of them have been designed not only to look good, but also to expose the maximum information and data possible. These infographics were made by some very talented designers, with creative minds and superb skills.

While there are lots of really interesting and cool infographics on various topics, in this post we have only gathered awesome infographics which are of interest to web designers and developers...
