About the Session

Decisions about font, size, color, line length, alignment — all convey meaning. Are you conveying the meaning you intend with each choice?

In this session, we discuss factors that drive each decision. We review dozens of specific examples of logos, print materials and websites — hilarious examples of bad, safe examples that follow established rules, and a few inspiring examples of rules broken well.
