Background images and web typography make a large proportion
of objectives that add to the visual interest of a page. But
again, web designing is a vast subject matter. However designing
a page using text and background visual effects is easier
now. This can easily be done by Swish, an Australian program,
I will brief out later.
Text writing first of all needs a selected font that would
be used. Fonts have different appearances on screens and printed
pages. They look dark and expansive on a print as the ink
spreads on the paper, whereas, fonts give a slimmer image
to the eye on screen because their edges merge into the white
Fonts that fit into pixel grids should be preferred for screen
visuals. Nonetheless, very small background images possess
very small pixels and therefore numerous. They consume a lot
of time to load.
When designing, it is of importance as well like other factors
to keep a balance in the background and the text color. Deep
colors like navy blue and blood red seem heavy on screen while
light color schemes like sky blue and baby pink have a soothing
effect to the eye. One shall manage to maintain an obvious
difference in background and text colors. For example, yellow
text is not visible on white background. It requires a dark
color, as it is itself a light one.
Backgrounds may be made having a range of colors that come
under the same family, or, one color changing its depth. One
type is to repeat a pixel and see its after effect. Increasing
the zoom and drawing a pixel can easily do this. Then by repeating
it the effects can be seen and thereby chosen.
Swish offers a lot more than the above matter. It gives text
effects that Flash can give and yet, is easier to use. The
effects are clearly stated in a menu bar. All you have to
do is write the text and make a choice of the effect. The
rest work is done by Swish. You may now make any alterations
you want in the animation size, zoom size, slide spin and
text explosion etc. This is not all; there are hopes for more
features as well.
Now, as we have smart programs like Swish, web typography
and background setups can be done easily and efficiently.
Through these setups we can benefit sales and business. Furthermore
we can present our ideas in a broader facet. These things
are taken easy but they do confer to success in acts like
marketing and presentations.
