Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a grid, part of Designing a Brochure (2009).
So we have our page now divided into three vertical sections, I would now like…to add a baseline grid. As I mentioned in an earlier movie, it seems like …I'm just coming up with these numbers instantly like I know exactly what I want.…But there is some trial and error involved here.
