Use Less White—& Then More


Okay, white makes for some 'clean' looking layouts, but if your design isn't spectacular, it starts to look like you didn't even consider color. Solution? Use this very light gray instead of white for a background. One of the best things about #F5F5F5 is that it plays well with white, and even better with larger solid fills of it.
