Understanding Negative Space design principle

In brief, understanding these principles helped me to see my flaws in the designs I’ve done so far for my apprenticeship. I believe I can do better as the days go by, and I’m stretching myself out of my comfort zone.

I still have some difficulty understanding negative space, and perceiving it in my design. It’s apparent because, I’ve been told many times that I lack the understanding of space in design. It all boils down to more practice.

Key skills needed:

  • Effective study methods
  • Organising time
