Project Details

Rebecca Hagen co-authored White Space is Not Your Enemy: A Beginner’s Guide to Communicating Visually through Graphic, Web and Multimedia Design in 2009 while teaching at the University of South Florida School of Mass Communications. In addition to writing, Rebecca designed the cover and the layout. She provided much of the photography and graphic design examples as well. The book has been widely adopted at Universities and Colleges across the United States. The third edition was released in early 2017 and a fourth edition is planned for 2021. White Space has been translated into four languages: German, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese (twice!). Visit the White Space website at
