Typography and geography collide ...
 
19th Century New York Once Had an Entire Neighborhood Dedicated to Typography - http://rnmkr.me/1eBLXLP
In the 19th century, nearly all type foundries were clustered in Lower Manhattan--for good reason.

I have wanted to write this post for years ...

Visual hierarchy is a pretty advanced design technique. That doesn't mean it's only for designers. It just takes some insight and application, and anyone can use it.

When you organize information using visual hierarchy, your pages will be crystal clear and easy to navigate. Read on, and let me know what you think!
 
How to Use Visual Hierarchy To Create Clear and Easy-to-Read Web Pages

Imagine you’ve entered a cave.

Your eyes slowly adjust to your surroundings and begin to make out the shapes and forms around you

You see three doorways: they’re equal in size, and all the same distance from where you stand. How do you choose where to go first?

You’re frustrated, because you don’t have enough information to make a decision. All you can do is guess.

Now imagine you’ve entered a second cave.

In this one, there’s one large doorway before you. It says “Tours” and is wide and well-lit.

To one side, there’s a small doorway with a window in it that says “Tickets” above it. Next to it is a nondescript door that says “Employees only.”

In this cave you know exactly what to do.

You’re here for a tour, so you walk up to the ticket window, buy your ticket, and walk through the door that says “Tours.”

Your website is like a dark cave. And in tomorrow's post +Pamela Wilson will explain how to guide your visitors effortlessly through this cave with a simple 3-step thought process.

Stay tuned.
