For a long time I deisgned my own websites. I could never code them, but I always felt like I could design one. I’d spent hours in Photoshop pushing pixels, choosing colors, finding fonts (and apparently alliterating), only to find myself irritable and frustrated.
A few years ago, I finally gave in and started working with a really good designer who’s instincts I now trust (even if I still like to tinker a bit). One of the things I learned about was white space and the idea of letting things breathe a little bit instead of cramming as much as possible into a space.
That being said, if your sales graph’s white space is getting bigger – maybe you’ve got bigger problems.
Love your cartoon!
I can just relate to yours when I analyze my website traffic. A down slope and too much white space on the right hand side of the graph is a really, really bad sign 🙂
