|White Space Awaiting Creative Input|
White (Blank) space in graphic design is a good thing; however, many new designers have a hard time seeing the benefit of it within their designs. White space signifies a good composition, as a crowded space is never a good thing. White space has many positive attributes which this article will discuss and, regardless of the graphic design style being used, there is always room for some 'white space' .
|This White Space Is An Opportunity|
White spaces are everywhere in a designer’s world, especially at the start of a project; the blank white page of a notebook, the blank screen awaiting a web page or the Photoshop canvas awaiting your creation. In fact, we can be thankful as long as we still see a white space around as it significantly tells us of the fact that there are still artistic creations waiting to be conceived.

Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space occasionally is used to artistic effect as the "real" subject of an image. The use of negative space can be a key element of artistic composition and is intrinsically linked with white space.

Your empty design element may not be entirely white, though. It can be any solid background color, but for the viewer it is still a white, blank, refreshing space that relaxes their eyes. Simply remember that this space is a very important ingredient in coming up with more effective and enjoyable designs and is the simplest way to unite all elements in your graphic design.
