Week six—Fonts

Standard

This week was almost completely devoted to fonts and how they work on the web.  Also an introduction on how to work with font families for the best display on a webpage. Not only that, but how visual hierarchy works and how such aspects such as color, contrast, and alignment can make or break a website.

The lectures and videos looked at this week were:

Another item learned this week was configuring style, color and justification of text.  What I am looking forward to now is actually trying to create a website from scratch.  It will be an experience for me as I barely remember my feeble first attempts at coding back in the late ’90’s–long before I ever decided to go into graphic design.
