If I could only pick one term to learn as a designer it would be ‘white space.’ It makes a HUGE difference in your work when you learn how to use it. It’s so easy to want to cram a page full of text, images and design — but everything needs room to breathe. White space is helpful because it’s a great way to create hierarchy by grouping certain design elements together and separating others.
White Space improves comprehension, increases interaction rate and creates breathing room for the user to understand what is on the page.
A common misconception with white space is that it’s actually white. In reality, it’s just the negative space within a design or image. Anywhere that your eye can rest is really important.
Just remember — let your design breathe!
