One of the biggest topics I have taken away from this course is understanding how a document should be balanced. I have tried to create documents that look great, but end up good because of staying inside the style guides I have learned. After taking this course I understand it is ok the bend the style guides and make a document great. For example extending the margins to put all the information on one line, instead of carrying two words onto the next line, which creates a cleaner overall image for the reader. Or how to offset images with text so a visual can quickly be seen of the information. We learned that a document’s balance is one of the core fundamentals helping writers reach the audience.
