Active/Passive White Space:

Active white space can draw attention. Passive white space goes unnoticed, but it serves to increase legibility.


Prompt: Create a layout with active white space. Perhaps a page that features a luxurious moment, or something nostalgic or calm and peaceful.


Tip: White Space doesn’t have to be white! You can use colour, texture and pattern to create a white space.
