Looking at fonts

Create hierarchies - title in capitals?
Larger fonts to make sure people know what is happening
Positioning is important as well, people read from top left.
Spacing - think about spaces between paragraphs. Easier to get involved with clear, structured things.
Font explorer - X-pro. This is at UTS - font management library
click connect - asks for username - use the number on the back of the computer - password is fonts. Click in the checked box next to it, and then it activates.
Helvetica is a reliable fall back option.
Want a big, impressive font for the titles, and then a small, unobtrusive font for the body of the writing.
Body - between 8.5 and 10.5. - free fonts - gives colour modes, search for skin tones?
