Design Tips When Putting together a Layout
Length of a line of text needs to be balanced according to size of the text. (Long lines are inappropriate for tiny lettering, but may be very appropriate for very large letters).Don’t clutter (increasing white space will make words and images more noticeable)Do not use borders, boxes, clip art excessively or inappropriately. These things can cause clutter and detract from the message of the artwork.Use less rather than more fonts.Use caps with the correct fonts (Some fonts are caps only!)Use one space between sentences rather than two (mostly)Do not over use centering, particularly with textUse ragged right or full justification (mostly)Avoid double hard returns after a paragraphUse proper punctuationReset software defaults (usually default settings are inappropriate when creating a design)Use rules of third and the golden mean to help with layoutsFonts have different weights light, normal, semi bold, bold, italic use these rather than a different font.
What do you know about Typography?
Typography involves the choosing and using of letters in the words you produce in your graphic design.
Typeface selection can be a very subjective and personal decision, that is easily affected by bias of a designer. A good designer needs to be able to adopt a perspective that is as far away from any sort of prejudice as possible; and choose typefaces that are most suited to the job at hand, and suitable for the client and the reader.
Consider the criteria you are applying?
Must be Legible (ie. The way individual letters look will determine how legible they are)Must be Readable (ie. The way different letters are arranged together will determine how readable they are)Must have appropriate impact (Letters can be legible and readable, and still not get noticed, dor example, bold, contrasting letters have more impact)

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
