  19. Planet of the Apes is a 1968 American science fiction

    film directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, based on the 1963 French novel La Planète des singes by Pierre Boulle. The film stars Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Maurice Evans, Kim Hunter and Linda Harrison. It was the first in a series of five films made between 1968 and 1973, all produced by Arthur P. Jacobs and released by 20th Century Fox. The film tells the story of an astronaut crew who crash-land on a strange planet in the distant future. Although the planet appears desolate at first, the surviving crew members stumble upon a society in which apes have evolved into creatures with human-like intelligence and speech. The apes have assumed the role of the dominant species and humans are mute creatures wearing animal skins. The film was released on February 8, 1968, in the United States and was a commercial success, gaining $32,589,624 at the international box office. The film was groundbreaking for its prosthetic makeup techniques by artist John Chambers, and was well received by critics and audiences, launching a film franchise, including four sequels, as well as a short-lived television show, animated series, comic books, and various merchandising. The original series was followed by Tim Burton’s remake Planet of the Apes in 2001 and the reboot Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2011. In 2001, Planet of the Apes was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” The measure The measure’s the name given to the width of a body of type. This type is too wide to read comfortably.

Increasing the type size also alters the measure. This type is still uncomfortable to read for long periods.
  21. An optimum measure is 2-3 alphabets or 52-78 characters (including

    spaces.) This measure is 57 characters. Planet of the Apes is a 1968 American science fiction film directed by Franklin J.

When line-height isn’t optimal—either too loose or too tight—we need to concentrate to find the start of the next line.

  32. So increase line-height, in this case from 1.3 to 1.4.

  78. Charlton Heston ( ) Notice how the large parentheses fall

    below the baseline and have a strange relationship to the letter ‘C?’ We can fix that with baseline shift too.
  79. Charlton Heston ( ) Shift the parentheses up to just

    below the baseline and reduce their size. By how much will depend on the typeface.
  80. <span class="parenthesis">(</span> Charlton Heston <span class="parenthesis">)</span> .parenthesis { position :

  84. Brand Name By Author's Name Design Persona Let’s talk about

    how we start a design process. We often work with clients on a ‘design persona interview’
  85. Overview Write an overview of the brand personality. If your

    brand were a person, who would it be? Maybe you have a mascot which already is the visual representation of the brand personality. If so, describe its traits and how that relates to the personality you want to convey. Start by asking who our personality would be?
  86. Overview Freddie Von Chimpenheimer IV is the face of MailChimp,

    and the embodiment of the brand personality. Freddie's stout frame communicates the power of the application, and his always on the go posture lets people know this brand means business. Freddie always has a kind smile that welcomes users and makes them feel comfortable and at home. The cartoon style lets people know that MailChimp offers a fun, and informal experience. Freddie like to crack jokes, but when the situation is serious, the funny business is out the window. MailChimp often surprises users with a funny easter egg, or a link to a goofy YouTube video. Fun is around every corner, but never in the way of the workflow. Ours is based on a questionnaire shared by MailChimp.
  87. Brand Traits FUN but not childish FUNNY but not goofy

    POWERFUL but not complicated HIP but not alienating List 5-7 traits that best describe your brand along with a trait that you want to avoid. This will help those designing and writing for this design persona create a consistent personality while avoiding the traits that would take your brand in the wrong direction. Here are some examples: Asking about ‘traits’ is amazingly helpful in understanding how a customer feels about their brand.
  88. Visual Lexicon COLOR Describe the color palette the design team

    might use when creating the interface. What types of color would be used and why? TYPOGRAPHY Describe the kinds of typography the design team might use when creating the interface. What type faces would be used and why? GENERAL STYLE NOTES Provide general notes about design style, textures, imagery, and other elements that may be important to shaping the design persona. These brand traits are clues to visual attributes that we can bring into our design ‘atmosphere.’

  102. Here’s a technique that I’ve been using since, well, forever.

    Make two strips, one black, one white, each 200x50px or a multiple of.
  103. 100% 100% 75% 50% 25% 25% 50% 75% Overlay four

    squares filled with your chosen colour onto both strips. Then change the opacity of each square to create a ‘tint.’
  104. Use a limited colour palette and use tints to create

    a harmonious scheme from only one or two colours.

    colours as seen by a person with ‘deuteranopia.’
  118. Next compare those interaction colours on the left with the

    same colours as seen by a person with ‘protanopia.’
  119. We should consider supporting colour differences with texture and other

    distinguishing features.

  121. Gridset helps to teach that we often need more than

    one grid.
  122. So we should think carefully about how we design different

    grids for different breakpoint classifications.
  123. Especially at the smallest sizes as it’s a mistake to

    think that small screens only require one column.
  124. Related to layout; it’s important to keep proportions relative to

    the screen or viewport size. Planet of the Apes is a 1968 American science fiction film directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, based on the 1963 French novel La Planète des singes by Pierre Boulle. The film stars Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, Maurice Evans, Kim Hunter and Linda Harrison. It was the first in a series of five films made between 1968 and 1973, all produced byArthur P. Jacobs and released by 20th Century Fox.
  125. For example, don’t forget to increase both margins and padding

    as sizes become larger. The film tells the story of an astronaut crew who crash-land on a strange planet in the distant future. Although the planet appears desolate at first, the surviving crew members stumble upon a society in which apes have evolved into creatures with human-like intelligence and speech.
