Using White Space (or Negative Space) in Your Designs

Space is a fundamental parameter in web design, but also one of the most underrated. If we grasp control of white space, we can control a subtle, but defining element of a webpage and make good use of it.

In a nutshell, white space is the spacing between different elements, whether it be between the actual sections of the page, or right down to the space between letters. In most cases, we use white space (also referred to as negative space) to space out content for easier, and ultimately faster, scanning of a page without the need to put in specific separating elements.

Today, we’ll cover how you can use negative space in your designs and work out how exactly it helps give your design a clean, uncluttered feel.
