In sum

Visual effectiveness can enhance all of the other quality characteristics. By itself, it can do little to improve the quality of your information, but if you use it as a vehicle to aid in improving each of the other quality characteristics, you can enliven your information and make it easier to use, understand, and find. Information that is visually effective helps the structure of the information disappear and thus focuses users' attention on the information itself.

Use the guidelines in this chapter to help ensure that your technical information is visually effective. The examples in the chapter represent only some of the possible practical applications of these guidelines.
