Typefaces and fonts, what they mean

Typefaces and fonts, what they mean

Before getting into the depth of typography, let’s start with some of the fundamentals you should need to be aware of. What is the distinction in between typefaces and fonts? A typeface acts as a separate part; however font deals as a collection of typefaces.

A Font, How to choose one?

Fonts for Design

There are number of fonts in front of you to make a selection from, most of them are out of this world, before choosing any of the fonts, for any of the projects, first make it sure that the font may work the most excellent way for entire of the design, an abrupt selection may result in an intimidating end for yourself only. Artistic perception in choosing one of the fonts for your entire design may be the core part, but also you will put certain things into considerations.

  • Size of typefaces; its width and height, in order to pair typefaces of different kind, the height and the width is something that you need to focus on. Similar type of height can be used, as far as its width is concerned, buffer space is something that you need to think of, as it’s the gap between writing and which flawlessly merges the selected typefaces.
  • The vertical space between type lines is known as Leading and, to enable you text to be readable, leading value should be 1.5 times greater than actual dimension of the font.
  • Characters and spacing in between them is know as Tracking. And its something which is to be done consistently.
  • Tracking and Kerning are almost same, but the only difference kerning possesses is, that it is a process of spaces to be adjusted amongst the characters.
  • To provide your readers the best ever experience of reading and if you wish them to read with all convenience there is something called measurement that you will have to consider. The width of a text block should be in your focus as this is something referred as measure.
  • It’s always a perfect hierarchy, what is required, and which can be achieved with color, size, weight and the last but not the least spacing. For example inclusion of typefaces of dissimilar dimension as per the requirement of large body and in there largest will be the headings, and for sure the body part and other sub headings to be comparatively smaller to one each other.

There are certain more things which one need to be familiar with while dealing with Typography

Typography comes along with a bundle of its concepts and requisites which one needs to recognize, before working on any of the projects or even if it’s just the start-up. Make it very sure, that you know all of those. Moreover keep one thing in your mind, that the dictionary of typography have a lot to offer, try your best to have a glance towards all of those, in order to have a firm grip towards the very topic.

Mockplus Repeater vs. Adobe XD Repeat Grid, which one do you like better? http://graphicdesignjunction.com/2017/11/mockplus-repeater-vs-adobe-xd-repeat-grid-which-one-do-you-like-better/ http://graphicdesignjunction.com/2017/11/mockplus-repeater-vs-adobe-xd-repeat-grid-which-one-do-you-like-better/#respond Wed, 29 Nov 2017 16:43:13 +0000 http://graphicdesignjunction.com/?p=19587 What do you think is the most tedious aspect of a designer’s workflow?

What do you think is the most tedious aspect of a designer’s workflow? I believe that’s to create repeating layouts and then make small adjustments over and over again. However, in the process of building a prototype, we often find a lot of similar parts need to be made. Although copy-and-paste is a good solution, you have no choice but to edit them one after another. It wastes you a lot of time and you are long for a way to prototype faster and easier.

To solve your problem, Adobe XD released its famous Repeat Grid. Mockplus, the emerging rapid prototyping tool in Asia also brings you a nice solution, the “Repeater”.

Repeat Grid and Repeater, which is the right one for you? You’ll get the answer after finishing this full review of the two features.

Now, just imagine yourself working on a design full of repeating elements, and you have Adobe XD and Mockplus here to help you.

1. Create a Repeat Grid / Repeater

Adobe XD places the Repeat Grid on the right of its interface. That allows users to click this button to convert a component to Repeat Grid, or exit from it. In Mockplus, you can directly right click on the component, and turn it into a “Repeater”. Perhaps the latter is more suitable for those who require high efficiency.

2. Add a Grid/Repeater Cell

In Adobe XD, after converting a component to Repeat Grid, there would be two handles, by pulling which you can add grids quickly. In Mockplus, there’re several ways to create a new “Cell”. For example, by pulling the eight dots on the border, you can create new cells in different directions. Like those of Repeat Grid, Mockplus also has two handles on its Repeater, but with different usages. Here we take the vertical direction as an example, when the last row of cells shows incomplete, click the handle on the bottom to complete it. If the last row shows complete, click the handle to add another row of cells. It’s convenient to create new elements in both of them. Perhaps in Mockplus, you have more choices.

3. Gap Setting

The operations to set the gap in Adobe XD and Mockplus are similar: select a cell and then drag the red line among cells to adjust the gap. In Mockplus, you can also set column gap and row gap on the properties panel, which helps you do the work more accurately.

One difference is that in Mockplus there are 3 different layout types, namely “Grid”, “vertical” and “horizontal”. If you select a vertical layout, the newly generated cells would appear vertically.

In addition, you can choose to show or hide the separator of Repeater in Mockplus, or make some adjustments to the separator to meet your needs.

You may ask: What if I only want to modify the properties of one grid/cell without changing the properties of others? Don’t worry. In the Repeater of Mockplus, by clicking “Separate” on some cell, you can separate it from others, then the changes made on it would not display on other cells. This is very useful, isn’t it?

4. Add/Delete Parts in Grid or Cell

The operations to add/delete a part in Adobe XD or Mockplus are the same. When you drag a new component to Repeat Grid/Repeater, the change will be applied to all grids/cells in the same way. After deleting a component, if there is only one component in the currently editing group, it will be automatically disassociated and returned to the previous group, and other cells would synchronize this operation; if there is no component in the grid, then the entire Repeat Grid or Repeater will be deleted.

5. Auto Data Fill in Repeat Grid/Repeater

It’s easy to drag one or more images to Adobe XD Repeat grid at once. If there is only one image, the image will automatically adapt to the size of the component. If there are more images, they would automatically adapt to the size of components as well as be sorted.

Mockplus supports auto data fill with images and texts. This practical feature can usually be used in the following two occasions:

  1. Single or batch fill of images or texts.
  2. Used on Repeater to create components with repeating elements (for instance, a list), which greatly saves designers’ time.

This is the Repeater in Mockplus and Repeat Grid in Adobe XD. Both of them are cool features, but they do differ from each other in many ways. Before you make a choice, it’s wise to try both of them.

13 Be Theme Small Business Templates

1. For Food Stores – Be Salmon

This template makes good use of large images to entice users, the interactive menu helps to engage them, and the customer testimonial section is included to help seal the deal.

2. For Car Services – BeDetailing2

A bold professional look is important when you what to demonstrate the care that goes into this business’s services. Before and after images are key selling points, as is a price listing for services rendered.

3. For Event Planners – BeMeeting

Event planners and meeting attendees want good information, presented in an easy on the eyes format coupled with easy navigation. The attention-getting countdown clock is abonus.

4. For Salons & Spas – BeManicure

Salons and spas prefer a look of luxury, elegance, and soft design to present their products and services. The integrated eShop makes it much easier to fully engage website users.

5. For Online Clothes Shops – BeDenim

A bold and innovative use of colors, color combinations, and patterns is important in a website for this type of business. An easy shopping feature is a must; and it is satisfied by incorporating an eShop capability.

6. For Musicians and Music Producers – BeHipHop

Advertising a hip music business implies a need for a hip design, which is what this pre-built website offers. There’s audio and video too, along with a blog section for announcements.

7. For Cafes & Tea Houses – BeCafe2

Large and “tasty” images inside the online menu provide a sure-fire means of attracting and engaging visitors. An equal amount of attention has been given to the business itself.

8. For Catering Businesses – BeVegetables

The interactive product presentation makes this food-oriented site even more appealing. Prices and CTA buttons are crystal clear to make food selection and ordering easy.

9. For Visual Artists – BeDrawing

When you design a website for a creative client, an impressive gallery is a “must have”. The integrated presentation video and the overall design (clean and simple) also play key roles.

10. For Courses and Webinars – BeTraining

Training websites require easy navigation, easy to follow menus, and clear and concise content to make their case. Large thumbnails, like the ones demonstrated in this template, help users make decisions.

11. For Nutrition & Fitness Businesses – BeDiet

Another food-oriented pre-built website, and another excellent use of large, high-quality images. This template also features special recipe sections in the main menu, and an attractive blog section.

12. For Medical Care – BeClinic2

A professional website like this demands a clean, crisp, and equally professional design; somewhat formal, but still friendly. Note how the content is organized to foster easy reading.

13. For Interior Designers – BeCarpenter2

Architectural design, with its geometric patterns and clean edges, is always engaging. Large, detailed images and a professionally-produced video are employed to present products or services. 

Here’s How You Can Attract These Types of Clients

Consider yourself lucky to have examples like those shown here at your beck and call. Now, it’s unlikely your proposals are going to go unnoticed or be consigned to the wastebasket. Nevertheless, you still need to establish contact with potential clients to land assignments.

A smart use of social media and cold emails tends to be quite effective. Both are time-tested ways to get in touch with potential clients. 

1. Link Up with Their Facebook Groups

First, you’ll want to search Facebook for businesses in those niches you want to do business in. That could include any of the 13 discussed here, all of them, or completely different ones. Your choice –  but the more, the better.

Once you find a niche that interests you, you’ll need to ask the group admin’s permission to post your services. If you give the admin the information he/she asks for, you should not have any problems.

Then it’s mostly a manner of letting the clients contact you. 

2. Choose Your Businesses, and Send Them Cold Emails 

Those making cold calls, and those receiving them, tend to be uncomfortable. This is since they’re often viewed as being intrusive. Cold emails are different.

Look up businesses on LinkedIn that you’d like to offer your services to. This should allow you to find the right people to contact. You can then email your proposal to the right person(s).

The tenor of your email should be one of offering to HELP them establish an online presence.  Or, you can see if they need assistance in improving a website they already have in place.

Helping, rather than selling, is key. If it’s the latter, your proposal will most likely be consigned to the trash folder.

It’s also important to suggest discussing your proposal in greater detail. You might also want to consider offering to forward examples of your services.

Summary

Don’t make the mistake of going after the hottest companies on the market. It’s more important to find those you feel are most in need of your services. There’s certainly no shortage of small businesses that could use some help.

Go down the list of templates that are presented here. Just check several out to see how they work. Then, you’re ready to put Facebook, LinkedIn and your email marketing skills into play.

You can offer your help to as many potential clients as you think you can manage.

Once you get a response, put Be Theme, with its 280+ pre-built websites, to work.
