The 3 remaining rules are all about spacing — proximity suggests a relationship. If two blocks of copy are close together the viewer will group them in their mind. The opposite is true with distance.

Resist the urge to fill the entire page. Negative space is like air. It is required for the design to breathe.

Resist the urge to push all of your design elements to the edges. Repetition of dimension is boring to the viewer. This concludes volume 1.

Avoid The Corners 
Don't place elements along the edge or corners of a page unless to deliberately cut elements off. Negative space is a good thing, so let your design breathe. 
Everything I learned in design school distilled into easy to follow, simple rules to help you start designing like a rock star.
09 Mind The Gap 
Typography is all about spacing. Never use forced justified type because of the inherent rivers that will run through your copy. Avoid having a single word on the last line of a paragraph, otherwise known as a widow (otherwise known as an orphan outside the US). 
Don't allow a new page or column to begin with the final word or line from a previous paragraph, thus separating it from the rest of its paragraph, an orphan (widow outside the US).
Use a single space after punctuation in a sentence. Pay attention to the shape that the rag creates to avoid undesired shapes/angles. Spacing matters. The closer things are together, the more the reader will assume a relationship exists between separate blocks of information.

10 Relax, It's Just Type 
Be bold or italic, never regular. 
This isn't actually a typographic rule. It's just a reminder to have fun. Work within the rules, then break them. 
Whatever you do, don't be regular.
