Design Terms : Justify

Introducing — a new blog column! I’m going to be sharing various design terms that I either use quite often with my clients or they’re good terms to know if you’re learning design. The terms are always going to be really simple definitions, either direct from a legitimate definition or in my own words.  I may also send you to some other resources you can check out for more details!

The first term to learn is ‘Justify’ – this one is pretty simple and you probably come across it more than you know. It’s the alignment of both the left and right margins of a body of text. The body of text on this blog is an example of this! Although, when used, it can be tricky because large gaps can occur because the words are forced to the edges. But it can also make for clean, straight edges on the page.

    I really love justified text. I do think it looks so, so good! Excited to see more in this series! 🙂
