Visual design for non-designers
You’ll take home a simple set of rules and tools on visual design that you can’t go wrong applying.
There are some simple, non-intuitive principles of design that most non-designers are unaware of, around choice of colours, using white space, typography, alignment, etc.
Some examples of questions we’ll address are:
What’s a good line height? (Hint: it’s proportional to the square root of the line width.)
How do I pick an uniformly distributed colour palette for my site?
What heading font would contrast best with a body font
Where do I place the images? And what should the image dimensions be?
This will be a tutorial + workshop where we’ll take live examples and see the impact of applying these rules to a website.
