Basics Design: Gridsexplores and explains the principles behind grid design and development, to help graphic designers tackle a wide variety of design problems and find creative solutions. A grid serves a similar function to the scaffolding used in building construction - acting as a positioning guide for text, pictures, page numbers, columns and so on. In this completely revised second edition, best-selling author team Gavin Ambrose and Paul Harris demonstrate how a creative approach to grid design can produce dramatic results. Filled with international case studies of contemporary design practice and practical exercises to help designers apply the ideas to their own work, this richly illustrated book is an invaluable guide to grids within design and visual communication.
