SCOTT USES THE SAME PAGE to cover two different questions:
1. Is it OK to “jump” type from one side of a photo to another?
2. Should he switch to a different text font?
Here’s a page I did this past week that’s certainly nothing to write home about, but I wanted to get some feedback. It’s the first time I’ve tried to insert a two column photo in between text. I thought it turned out pretty well…just wanted to get some comments as to how others view this practice. Thanks, Scott
I’m usually opposed to this kind of design but here I think it works OK, perhaps because it’s obvious that there’s more of the story to the right of the photo. How about the rest of you? Is this a complete no-no…or does it sorta kinda maybe work here?
I’m thinking of changing our main text font away from Times New Roman and have been thinking about Cambria…it’s one we have and our budget for new fonts is non-existent. What do you think? I worked up the page I just sent in Cambria…thanks, Scott
I’ve looked at Cambria and, yes, it seems like a good replacement for Times. There are others that are good, too. Some of my favorites:
One thing I’d advise: decrease your paragraph indent. Your’s looks like 2-3 picas when the most you’d need is one.
How about the rest of you? Thoughts? Criticisms? Comments?
