Tu/Th 5:00–6:20 | section FIVE | intro to graphic design | Renée Stevens

I chose the lettering used as the icons for Microsoft Office 2011 because I like the way that the ribbon like style of the letters creates movement. My eye flows easily over them. I think that these icons are effective because the flow of the letters is a subtle presentation of the idea that using these programs will flow well. This is important because many people can be intimidated when using computer programs so using lettering with an easy flow may help to put users at ease.
