Supplementary text

The information contained within the presentation drawings can be supplemented by accompanying text. This text is another important element in the design of a graphic presentation, and its display needs to be carefully considered; for example, it might be boxed out or weaved into the actual drawings. Remember, however, that this text is supplementary; the drawings should remain the primary means of communication.

As with the choice of line weight for drawings, the style and size of the font will affect the viewer’s interpretation of the supplementary text. The hierarchy of the text and how this relates to the drawings should be carefully considered.
