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

In this week’s reading, I enjoyed the section on dropped capitals and other designs that can fill the space created by and indent in the text block.  The way that the small caps help transition the reader from the drop cap into the standard font of the body text is so simple, yet very effective in design and aesthetics.  One thing I learned is that as a designer, one can use titles or even subtitles in place of drop caps to link any images or themes to the main body text.
