Design Tip Tuesday: White Space over Clutter

More often than not, white space makes more of a statement than clutter. Do not be afraid to leave empty spaces on your canvas. Clutter screams amateur.

White space brings balance to the artwork and allows for the focal point to take center stage. Also, white space adds emphasis to the important parts of the piece. It draws the eye of the audience to the focal point.

In a practical sense, having white space makes everything else on the artwork easier to read.

As with fashion and decor, when designing, less is more. The challenge isn’t to fill the entire canvas with “stuff”, it is to keep it as minimal as possible without compromising the copy and design elements that need to be there.

Lastly, white space is “trés chic”. It makes your artwork look upscale and elegant.
