Another area that I feel benefits from typographic hierarchy is the contents page. This is because its crucial that the information is displayed clearly enough for people to be able to read and pick out the pages that they want to visit most. Not only this but it is another way of cataloguing the information that is included within the document that you are creating.
In the above to images although there is clearly a typographic hierarchy going on it is all too bunched together as is somewhat confusing. I feel that a contents page should be very clear and concise so that the reader can locate the information that they want to look at quickly and efficiently.
I feel that the above to are a lot better in the fact that the information that is included on each page is clearly located into blocks that are distributed by decade. This means that the user would clearly be able to locate the decade they were interested in as well as finding out what dress styles that were within that decade. By doing this they can search by decade and by dress styles and easily find their way to the correct page. Not only this but there is also some typographic hierarchy happening which means there is a contrast on the page and the most important information stands out.
