Good typography is essential to design. It gives your documents visual appeal, makes them more readable, and gains a reader’s trust. In Part 2 of this follow-along lab, join designer, author, artist, and trainer Nigel French as he outlines the wealth of type-specific features in InDesign. Nigel will demonstrate an approach that maximizes both efficiency and creativity that’s perfect for intermediate InDesign users to follow along and try on their own later.

In Part 2, Nigel will show how to:

  • Prevent — and fix — common composition problems
  • Adjust word spacing, and control widows, orphans, and runts
  • Develop a sixth sense for the fine details, while keeping a focus on the bigger picture
