For the final tip of the top 10 tips to make your website a success I’m sharing about creating consistent spacing. It’s really a pretty simple concept, but it’s something that’s easy to overlook. When you’re setting up your standards for your fonts, I recommend creating some rules around the spacing as well.
You want to consider the space around your images and make sure that that spacing is always consistent. For example, you might have a few different ways that your images are showing up (2-column, full-width, etc.). Create rules for each instance so you can establish consistency throughout the site.
Also consider space below and above your headings, making sure that it’s always the same depending on the heading that you’re using, and then also have consistent spacing between paragraphs and in between the different sections within your page. I have previously talked about page breaks, or the page fold, making sure that the space in that page section is consistent throughout so your white spaces throughout is looking cohesive. The whole purpose of this is to create brand cohesion and create some rules around the spacing in your brand so that it feels put together it elevates the way it comes across.
