Key Area of the letter S & the concept of "key areas"

Key area of letter S
Key areas of letter S

There are lines and and areas inside of a letter shape which are crucial for recognizing the letter. These areas are so called "key areas". They should never be covered by other elements, shapes, serifs or letters. Especially in advanced drawings, which are often very abstract, the letters will still remain recognizable, if you follow this rule. The key areas of the letter "S" are shown in the image to the left.
