Clarity breakfast, Tuesday 2 June 2015: Choosing typefaces and fonts for clear communication

Do fonts and typefaces affect the readability of documents? When is type too small? What does the research say? How do I choose the right font for my document?

Paul Luna is Professor of Typography and Graphic Communication at the University of Reading, and before that was head of corporate design at OUP. Drawing on his extensive experience as a designer, researcher and teacher, Paul will help us make more informed font choices for our contracts, documents and emails, and may even offer an opinion on the fonts our legislators should be using for Acts of Parliament online.

As usual, we thank the City Remembrancer’s office in the City of London for generously hosting the meeting and breakfast at the Guildhall.
