There are a lot of elements involved in graphic design. From type to photography to color to various graphic touches, each component is carefully selected and placed to effectively convey the message at hand.
But it’s also important to consider what’s not on the page. Great copy gets your message across, and the right image can drive it home. But it’s that unoccupied area, that “white space,” that invites the viewer in and gives your message room to breathe and sink in.
Designer/creative coach Jocelyn K. Glei sums it up nicely in her article, “Why You Need ‘White Space’ In Your Daily Routine.”
“In design, ‘white space’ is negative space,” Glei says. “It’s not blank space, because it has a purpose. It is balancing the rest of the design by throwing what is on the page (or the screen) into relief. The white space helps focus your visual attention.”
But Glei doesn’t stop there. She takes an idea traditionally associated with graphic design and applies the same principle to her daily life, sharing some valuable insights in the process. Click here to read “Why You Need ‘White Space’ In Your Daily Routine.” You’ll be glad you did.
