Document Design and Formatting

Here you'll find Student Success Center handouts about document design. Document design can be defined as how a writer integrates text, type, and visual aids (e.g., tables, graphs, charts) to convey a message to a reader.

Visual Aids

The following series of handouts, developed by Candice Melzow, former Lead Writing Tutor at the Student Success Center, were written with the "printed" or "hard copy" document in mind, although much will apply to online documents.
