The Grid in Practice

If you’re new to using the grid system, you might have been a little confused by last week’s post. You may have been thinking that you have to reduce all your text or crop your images to fit into those skinny little columns.

Remember, the grid is just a tool. Use it to enhance your designs and make laying out images and text easier on yourself. How do you do that? Build a grid first, then put on your creativity hat! Have fun!

The more I learn about how designers use the grid system and the different ways they construct their grids, the more free I feel to take my creativity to new heights! But how can using a complex, confusing, restrictive set of lines help me be free?

Glad you asked.
