As my old English Literature lecturer used to remind us: “Form equals Content”. By this, she meant that presentation and content are inseparable and can have an effect on one’s audience. This leads to the question why is proofreading so important? Having a fresh set of eyes look over your work can be beneficial in a number of ways. Firstly, it can eliminate grammar and spelling mistakes. It also allows you to tweak formatting, maintain writing consistency and increase clarity. Not only this, it can also help to prevent incurring additional costs (both time and money).
We all make mistakes… We are humans after all. On an anecdotal note. I learned this the hard way several years ago. While designing business cards for an art project. I failed to notice that I had spelt the project name incorrectly. At the time, I was under the effects of heavy medication after having broken my collarbone. To cut a long story short, I did not notice the glaring error until I had already sent them off to print. By then, it was too late to amend and I had to have them reprinted (additional time and money).
