Adhering to certain layout and grids standards and principles is important for any job from brochures, to annual reports, to posters, to websites, to publications. However, knowing how to bend the rules and make certain grids work for the job at hand takes skill.
This book outlines and demonstrates basic layout/grid guidelines and rules through 100 entries including choosing a typeface, striving for rhythm and balance with type, combining typefaces, using special characters and kerning and legibility. These essentials of grid design are critical to the success of any job.
T-08 Direct WireExposure Techniques for PCB Imaging: The History and Future JeffreyRittchier, ETEC SystemsInformation on the design,principles, manufacturing practices and practical applications of UV laserdirect write exposure systems will be covered in this workshop. Participantswill gain a working knowledge of the latest developments in laser direct imaging(LDI) and how to evaluate this technology for use in their own facilities. Ananalysis of cycle times, resist photosensitivity, and data rate limits will beincluded along with a discussion of LDI yield improvements for fine lineimaging.
T-12 High Speed Design:What Fabricators and Designers Need to Know Rick Hartley, AppliedInnovationThistutorial is a clear, in-depth study of the concepts and practices needed tosuccessfully design and fabricate PCBs using the higher speed ICs of today andthe very high speed devices of tomorrow.
W-06 VariabilityReduction Using Statistical Process Control (2:00-5:00) Marti Tully,Stickley-Vejar PWB Technical ServicesIt is possible to improve on thePWB manufacturing process using various statistical process control techniques.Its four basic steps include measuring the process, eliminating variances in theprocess to make it uniform, monitoring the process and developing the process toits best target value. Managers often shy away from statistical analysis becausethey do not understand the language or the mathematics used by statisticians.This session is designed as a simple, hands-on course in applied statisticalmethods: problem solving and capability studies/charting.
The focus on proportions in architecture as explained in the works of Palladio and Scamozzi fitted easily into Dutch society, not only among the scholarly elite but also among the intellectual middle class. As elsewhere, mathematical principles were used in architectural design at all times but, with the introduction of the Vitruvian theory, in its contemporary transformation by Palladio and Scamozzi, into seventeenth-century Dutch society, proportions became a major issue in architectural theory (Ottenheym 2010). This is reflected in contemporary Dutch architectural drawings and designs.
Finally, the question remains whether or not these kinds of design systems had anything to do with aesthetic thoughts of Dutch seventeenth-century patrons or architects. Sources to answer this question are scarce. Once again it is in the writings of Constantijn Huygens that we find hints to the tradition begun by Alberti two centuries before, where the essentials of classical architecture are not the five orders or other ornament, but the harmony of proportion of the design. In the minds of Huygens, Van Campen and their circle, the antique idea of macrocosmic harmony as the divine principle of universal beauty was still rather vivid (Goossens 2010). In his texts and poems Huygens discusses the beauty of regularity and right angles in urban designs of his home town, The Hague, as well the qualities of symmetry and musical proportions in architecture (Ottenheym 1999b). For instance, in his elaborate poem on Hofwijk, his small country house near The Hague, he praises symmetry and axial order as one of the prime principles in architecture and gardens, comparable to the divine design of human beings. 1e1e36bf2d
