What Is a Subhead?

 

Subheads are one of those page elements with which you will work often and you have to know how to approach them and how to lay them out. Their role is to break up the text and to give readers some clue what lies in the following paragraphs. This is why subheads should have meaning since they act like a headline for the upcoming text. This is neglected so often and I find myself so often reading the paragraphs that have no connection with the subhead. 

 

In design sense subheads serve a purpose to break long text blocks so place them in strategically good spots. In this tutorial I will tell you which are the bad spots to place them so you will know how to avoid them.

S3 - DAY SIX - Art Movements And Styles - Art Nouveau - Circa 1890

English uses the French name Art Nouveau ("new art"). The style is related to, but not identical with, styles that emerged in many countries in Europe at about the same time: in Austria it is known as Secessionsstil after Wiener Secession, in Spanish Modernismo, in Catalan Modernisme, in Czech Secese, in Danish Skønvirke or Jugendstil, in German Jugendstil, Art Nouveau or Reformstil, in Hungarian Szecesszió, in Italian L'Art Nouveau, Stile floreale or Stile Liberty, in Norwegian Jugendstil, in Polish Secesja, in Slovak Secesia, in Russian Модерн (Modern), and Swedish Jugend.

Art Nouveau is considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture, graphic art, interior design, and most of the decorative arts including jewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils, and lighting, as well as the fine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house with art nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewellery, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.
