Great Uses Of White Space

Great Uses Of White Space

As Mark Boulton so eloquently puts it “Whitespace,” or “negative space” is the space between elements in a composition. More specifically, the space between major elements in a composition is “macro whitespace.” Micro whitespace, is—yes, you’ve guessed it—the space between smaller elements: between list items, between a caption and an image, or between words and letters. The itty-bitty stuff.” A List Apart

White space can make or break a web design and in my opinion this showcase features websites where it makes them. Have a look and let me know what you think. Can you suggest any sites that I might want to consider in my next white space showcase?

    Another great compilation of white space focused design. Also some great typography examples as well.

    My goal was to focus on white space as well with my site design ( If you care to check it out at http://www.designthatrocks.com )

    Thanks for the post!
