DesignReadability
“In the early years of a child’s reading development, the attainment of mechanical skills is gained initially with the aid of a finger to help left to right progression and accurate return sweeps from the end of one line on to the beginning of the next. By reminding ourselves of what were the perfunctory difficulties of childhood reading, we give ourselves an insight into the fundamental mechanics and principles of setting text.”

UsabilityInexpensive Ways to Target Problem Areas
“In the past few years, technology has become available that has brought the cost and complexity of user testing down to a level where it is available for anyone. In addition, it allows designers to be exposed to users, in their native environment, not a sterile lab across town. You can run a test in only a week for less than a few hundred dollars.”

    Its really nice to see how diverse and established these designs look, without the use of any images, just simply using type.
