Part II: The Meat of the Matter > Working with Text

Chapter 6. Working with Text

So far in Fireworks MX, we have looked at some aspects of the drawing drawing process which, as you now know, is vector-based art. If you are wondering if text is related to vector art, you are right. So much can be done with text and type. Type is an integral part of many web sites, and it is the look and feel of the type design that often sets the character of the entire web site.

In web design, type can act as a vehicle to attract viewers’ attention. Key messages, brand identities, and various kinds of information and articles need to be communicated in a compelling way by using type. In order to retain viewer interest, especially where a reasonable amount of reading is required, text needs to offer legibility along with presenting a striking, interesting, and aesthetically pleasing design.
