A UX design technique to explore and map out a service, product, or system through physical navigation, often completed at the start of a design process to provide designers with an understanding of how users will navigate the system. In addition, body-storming can be used in development to test functionality or measure ease of use.
The distance between the baseline and the mean line of lowercase letters in a typeface. Nearby descenders (such as j) and ascenders (such as q) usually extend slightly below or above this height.
All available space (line-height) between two consecutive lines of text; this measurement should be adjusted for either ascenders or descenders. In hand typesetting, leading referred to thin strips of lead inserted by hand between lines of type in the composing stick to increase vertical distance.
The primary graphic that appears at the top of a webpage, designed to grab people's attention.
A small picture or design that represents an idea, function, or some other type of visual concept. For example, in computer graphics and web development, an icon is a pictorial representation of a program or file type.

The process of adjusting the spacing between individual letters to improve or avoid particular visual distortions.
A unit for defining the size of a font. It's not a distance; this unit's measurement is only relative to the typeface's design.
The attributes of a typeface. Type properties include weight, width, colour and x-height.
A basic design tool that helps designers create and communicate ideas.
