Headers and white space separate information into chunks similar to dividers, except dividers show separation between major topics on a webpage.

Dividers, when added to a webpage, present a subtle but noticeable change in the layout.


Dividers show a break or change in content.

Most often the meaning of the content will change after the divider.

Content guidelines

  • use dividers sparingly
  • use dividers when it communicates separation more effectively than white space
