Quality and effectiveness of newsletter publication Use of design principles Proper document design has as much to do with what you do not include as with what you do. White space is the background to your message. It is the space between images and words, charts and diagrams, headers, footers, and margins.

Relevance – Arbitrary visuals intended to add aesthetics to a document but hold no relation to the content can distract from the effectiveness of the message. A Newspaper document on changing a light bulb clearly should have images of light bulbs, but as appealing as butterflies may be, they have no relation to the objectives.
