Add space to your designs

Hello friends! Spaces are not just a block of space in your design. Instead, think of this more as a structural “empty” space, where there are no additional elements, decorations or other parts of your design.

In essence, the space is “unused” space, although I think this is not a very good definition. Gaps only at first glance uselessly are in designs, and in fact they fulfill very useful goals in design and work a lot. Spaces are valuable in any design, they allow your design to breathe and offer a greater balance inside your design.

In the end, what determines the presence of a block, if not the space around it?

Now you know everything about color, typography and other various things that you need before you start a design project. It's time to start to deal with some of the basics of working with modular grids in your projects.

Modular mesh allows you to create a solid structure and shape in your design. Like the typographical hierarchy and the vertical rhythm, the modular grid can implement the same sense of structure.

One of the most important aspects of typography on the Internet is vertical rhythm. This is one of the most difficult aspects of typography, and often takes a lot of time and experimentation. There are many ways to achieve a good vertical rhythm on the page, although some may boil down to what you just like the way it looks on the screen.

Typography is a fundamental element in any design. Websites are primarily intended to display information. This content should be easy to read, digest, be understood and have a solid foundation for typography.

Typography is perhaps one of the easiest parts of design training, simply because you can easily change and play with the text to get immediate results. However, we will increase the typography skills so that you can create something that works well, efficiently and is useful for your users.
