I made my best layout from last time even better. I added some padding around the whole thing (and a bit of extra space at the bottom) to give it all some breathing room. I also set my properties section in a smaller size.
Really, that’s about it. But it made a big difference. See for yourself:
I think it looks a lot more resolved now. The scale shift between the paragraphs and the properties really makes them each become their own separate entities. Yet since they’re both working with the underlying grid in the same way, they still have a strong relationship to each other and the rest of the composition.
I’m feeling pretty good about this.
