Role of white space in web design.
07 May 2020 1 min
There is to much white space, let’s add some elements in there.This is the most common phrase a designer will hear. It is unnecessary to fill every corner of the viewpoint with some elements. But, more importantly, I am not saying you should add too much whitespace, but to have a reasonable amount that serves a role in your design.
White space is an active element of the design. Don’t treat it as a passive background.
Let’s look into a few websites and there uses of whitespace.
1. Watch Google
Whitespace in used to make the search bar clear visible and understandable.
2. Watch Apple
They increase the attention to the product using whitespace.
3. Watch Spotify
Whitespace does not need to be white.
So, always use whitespace as a active element and always check the answer of following question:
1. Is there enough whitespace in my design?
2. What roles does it play?
