  • Why does the way a page looks influence how we interpret the information it contains? This unit looks will examine how typography and images can be combined to improve literary creativity and allow a document to communicate more readily with the reader.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/education/educational-technology-and-practice/educational-practice/word-and-image/content-section-0" /> First published on Thu, 22 Oct 2015 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/education/educational-technology-and-practice/educational-practice/word-and-image/content-section-0">Word and image</a>.
