Page 2: Proximity Review
- If items are related to each other, group them into closer proximity.
- Separate items that are not directly related to each other.
- Vary the space between to indicate the closeness or the importance of the relationship.
Besides creating a nicer look to the page, it also communicates more clearly.
By putting the title and subtitle close to each other, we now have one well-defined unit rather than six apparently unrelated units. It is now clear that those two topics are closely related to each other.
When we move the by-line and date farther away, it becomes instantly clear that although this is related information and possibly important, it is not part of the title.
