font (from top to bottom):

  • Arial
  • Cambria
  • Baskerville
  • Bebas Neue
  • Century Gothic
  • Constantia

When designing my double page spreads, i had a problem choosing a reasonable font in order to use for the title and the text.

I think when looking at these different types of font, i would choose a serif to be for the main text as it gives it a bit of volume when reading and a sans serif like arial for the title as it is clean and easy to read. Also i think for the main text for the audience to read, i would choose a font that have flexibility and constant has flexibility cause i can change the weights of the text whenever i want.

Serif fonts are mainly easy to read on printed work and that sans serif is much better on the web or onscreen.

As my double page spreads are about the environment and my picture layout is to do with what we all see in our environment that we live in and that as sometimes the stuff we see in our towns and places near where we live with places like pubs and stuff like that, therefore I thought that it would be better to use a serif font as the main text because there can be a lot of old and traditional places in towns and the pictures i took would show it with a sans serif font as the main title to give the spread a more modern feel to it.
