There are, however, some guidelines to help you out:

  • 12 point size font as an absolute minimum,
  • don’t condense letter spacing,
  • when changing line length, change the leading accordingly,

  • think about the impact on line length and leading when changing font size,
  • keep the text layout clean and uncluttered and use enough white space.
