White Space


White space is a concept familiar to graphic designers. While some may see it as empty or wasted space, the good designer knows that white space can be used to get the eyes to rest on what is most important. It helps clarify and organize the message. It gives the brain room to process.


I’m learning that white space is not just a concept for design. It can be a concept for life. I’m trying to find places where more white space would be beneficial – such as on my calendar, in my home, in my writing. I want to have space to focus on what’s most important.


I recently cleared my desk of most of the materials and supplies I had sitting on it. I made room for some pieces I really love and have more a more restful setting in which to work.


Are there any areas in your life where you find you need white space?
