4. Edit text ruthlessly!

logic: ensure good design- text is evil!

Start to remove superfluous text in any way possible. There are three main points above:

A total novice will leave the text as it is.

A novice will cut down on the amount of words as above.

A reasonable designer will convert the concept to a graphic, probably clip art.

A better designer will source a relevant image with very little text.

A top notch designer will be prepared to get a custom graphic taken (photo) or built.

Remember- your text can go in the notes page for later printing as handouts.
