  • Proximity in Web Design
    By: Kirsten Phillips

  • What is Proximity?
    • The space that is used to separate or connect items on a web page.
    • “Designing a website without intentional and effective white (or blank) space is like throwing your dinner into the blender and then drinking it through a straw. Pretty unappetizing.” – Jamie Kiley
  • Principle of Proximity
    • If an element is related to another element, they need to be visually related.
    • If they are not related, they need to be visually separated.
  • Example: Paragraph
    • I like my dogs. They are soft and like to cuddle. They play fetch and are my best friends. The rain clouds moved in today. It started to rain and the ground got muddy. I put on my rain boots to go outside and play in the rain. It was fun.

  • Do’s in Web Design
    • Use white space to separate things that aren’t related.
    • Use white space to bring
    ATTENTION
    and add dramatic effect.
  • Do Not Do This
    • Use white space to separate things that belong together.
    • i.e Pictures and captions
    • Feel like you must fill every spot of your webpage.
    • Have dead space. White space and dead space are different.
  • Examples
    world leader websites

    And remember your proximity to Jesus is important! =)
