Last week in class we learned about the several challanges of working with type against a busy background texture. Its definitely difficult to make thin serif type faces stand out against backgrounds similar to what we’re seeing in the image below. However, this example shows a good solution to the problem. By using a slightly lighter yellow shade in the typeface, the contrast is good enough to help the information stand out against the detailed background. The overall alignment and placement of the text also contributes in providing better legibility against the texture of the background.
