Recently in the office, the Paper Moss team has been talking about white space. What every designer's heavenly dreams are made of. What is white space you ask? White space is what most people would call "empty space". It is allllll that white (or whatever color the "space" may be) surrounding your text and or images. Blank, empty, negative space that most people want to fill fill fill.
White space is intrinsic to good design. It is also what has been inspiring me, not just this week, but for a while now. As a designer, knowing how much or how little white space is crucial, for print design and even interior decorating. The space is used to separate disparate design elements and group similar ones together. In practical, every day use, white space is most obvious when you look at shelving displays or a bookshelf. It is the perfect "empty" space to separate small vignettes or books or drawings.
I am on a kick to redecorating my home for the summer, so I have been inspired by looking at these images of interiors :)
Until next time, from the designer's desk!
