...did you know that a line of type should not be more than 17 to 21 words long?
...why? you wonder...
...because anything longer in a body of type or bodycopy becomes illegible as the eye
travels from a line of type or bodycopy to the next line of type. Try it!
Meanwhile, frequently web sites and graphic design outputs appear to ignore this,
making interactions a thoroughly uncomfortable exercise
...some of the erm best examples are generated by universities and government.
Is it too structured to teach legibility in design school?
Or is this a product of NO design school, along the lines that everyone's a designer?
