Modular Grids

Modular grids are essentially compound grids consisting of both columns and rows. This combination creates a series of small content areas called modules that may be combined both vertically and  horizontally, allowing the designer to create a myriad of different size and shape spatial zones. These types of grids are useful for complex projects with many components of varying sizes and importance, such as newspapers. They are well suited for charts, tables, and forms, but can provide a feeling of order and mathematical rationality to even simple publications. Modular grids were a product of the International Typographic Style developed from Bauhaus ideals in Switzerland in the mid-twentieth century, and have a historical background in politics, rational objectivity, and reduction to essentials and are sometimes used to add historical, political, or philosophical meaning to a design.
