Join Sean Adams for an in-depth discussion in this video Recap, part of Foundations of Layout and Composition: Grids.
- Using grids and structure in design isn't easy.…It is a juggling act of content, structure, and form.…It isn't as simple as one grid for all projects.…Each situation is unique.…In this course, we've covered a huge range of scenarios.…We looked at the structure of a grid…and different approaches using proportion.…The golden section and square proportions…lend themselves perfectly to a grid format.…Symmetrical grid structures can be dynamic and classic,…but are challenging to keep from becoming static.…
Asymmetrical grids offer the opportunity…to delineate a clear hierarchy…and have flexibility with the content.…Like any design project,…the most important component is the message.…That message will lead to personality and attitude.…From that, you can determine whether a grid…should follow a more classic approach…or one that is more adventurous.…We looked at book design…and how to design a grid…for different types of content.…Book design has a long history…going back 500 years,…so there are many long-standing rules.…
