7 Consistent Spacing

Different design projects will allow you different amounts of space to work with. It can be a challenge to create an attractive, balanced design within the limits of a design’s physical specifications. But you can apply a couple basic principles when laying out your design:

  • proximity. — placing related elements physically closer to each other (and separating unrelated items) — is a simple concept that can make a big difference in your design,
  • white Space. This could include margins, blank space between and around different pieces of the design, line spacing, and more. Too little space makes for a cluttered, crowded design; too much cancels out proximity, and design elements lose their relationship to each other.

Shapes used in your illustration designs should be spaced evenly.
