4 Presenting Information How to make sure your message gets acrossWhen you are creating any professional publication the most important item is the information.Badly presented information can be difficult to read and ultimately may be miss-read or ignored.When presenting information it is important to think about:1) Font size2) Text colour3) Font Style
5 How to make sure your message gets across Font SizeHow to make sure your message gets acrossSmall font is difficult to read.Iam a little tiny font can you read me? No? Didn’t think so?Large fonts look childish and prevent you from displaying as much information.This is big and written by a little person!!!!!!!
6 How to make sure your message gets across TypographyHow to make sure your message gets acrossMicrosoft office gives us access to hundreds of different fonts. Not all of them are suitable all of the time.It is important that your information is easy to read, so the font you choose should be clear and simple.Your font should also not draw attention away from the information you are trying to deliver.Some fonts are hard to read.Others just look silly.Some take attention away from what is being said.
7 How to make sure your message gets across Using ColourHow to make sure your message gets acrossColour has a profound impact on how easy information is to read.If text is to be coloured it should be a very different colour to the background and not so bright that it is difficult to read.Light colours are hard to readSome colours don’t go well togetherBright colours draw attention away from what is being readUsing many different colours can make information almost impossible to read.

10 Themes and designsWhen choosing fonts and colours it is important to decide on a theme. This theme should be based on the information you are trying to show.The font chosen here for the headings is retro computer style (fits in with the idea of cyber). The yellow and black warning background shows danger.
