Abstract

This paper describes a case history of the design of a government form. In particular, three kinds of problem are identified and discussed: contextual problems of relevance and interpretation; problems of reading sequence and conditional branching instructions; and a range of typographic problems. Typography is seen as a particularly important way of signalling the information structure of forms, and typographic techniques are discussed in some detail.
