Five Principles of Design: Great for designing documents in Sunnyvale



To help you develop your skills as a desktop publisher, we offer these five principles of good design:

Principle 1: Good design has a purpose. Consider what the document is to accomplish, who the audience is, what image you want to portray, and what reaction you want to invoke. This will guide all your selections – the typeface, the color palette, the layout itself.

Principle 2: Good design makes things simple. A good design will make a difficult concept understandable by guiding the audience through the presentation. Well chosen stock photographs, charts, illustrations or other graphic elements improve audience comprehension.

Principle 3:
Good design holds the reader’s attention. Engage the reader immediately with an eye-catching headline, graphic image, photograph, white space, or unusual layout. Then guide the reader through the important points so nothing important is missed.

Principle 4: Good design has an underlying logic. The audience will see not only the text, graphics and photographs on the page; they will react to the underlying organizational structure of the document. Be sure you have one, and be sure it is consistent.

Principle 5: Good design doesn’t call attention to itself. One measure of a good design is when the reader gets the intended message without being distracted by the design itself.
