We all know how exhausting it can be to read long texts. Sometimes we enjoy reading, and sometimes there seems to be something off with a text, but we cannot pinpoint the problem. Did you know that not only the content dictates if something is enjoyable to read but also the formatting and the typesetting? Text formatting is something that is often neglected when it comes to grant proposals, even though a document can greatly benefit from the right typesetting.
Typesetting is the key
In this course we will go into the depths of typesetting and how to make large amounts of text enjoyable to read. Learn more about fonts and how to use them effectively and how to organize graphic elements in combination with text. The second focus of the course is set on logo design. Participants will learn the basic principles of logo design and how to design a scientific logo (for a research proposal or a working group). The theory that is behind logo design can also be applied for the design of table of content figures or icons.
Proposed time frame
Intensive training courses: The course consists of two parts. On the first day, participants will learn the theoretical background and the second day is designed to learn more about software and finally they will start doing their own design. Participants are highly encouraged to bring their own projects to work on. In order to allow intensive and personalised training, the number of participants should not exceed 15 people.
