What is a negative space?

  Negative space is a concept that will help you to create a beautiful, easy to read interfaces. Negative space is the empty space on the interface.   This space is not used, making the layout more readable and expressive. The user can focus on a better representation of the elements.   Negative space is the space between the elements of the composition. However, it should not be literally empty. This background has the cognitive weight for users, so they can focus on the main elements.   When we talk about graphic design, building a visual hierarchy between the different elements of the interface is the key. It helps to specify the user at the strategic points of interaction.   In addition, the white space helps to reduce contamination information on the page, giving the content more space to “breathe”.
