  • Prioritize content: Explain what and why immediately.
  • Use short, strong sentences.
  • Provide valuable pullouts.
  • Lists draw attention.
  • Bold and italics draw attention to key concepts in paragraphs. Use sparingly.
  • Always include contact information. Note: Provided by template in consistent location.

Tip: We read in an F-shaped pattern: The first 2 words are important in every title and paragraph to tell the reader what it is about.

Tip: Create white space between paragraphs with sub-headings. White space can increase comprehension of a page by 20%.
