Book Description:

Basics Design: Grids explores 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 you apply the ideas to your own work, this richly illustrated book is an invaluable guide to grids within design and visual communication.

From the Back Cover:

Basics Design: Grids introduces graphic designers to the basic principles of grid design and development.The use of grids as a layout tool has a long history in graphic design. Methods have been refined, improved and complemented many times, and this process continues today, as new technology creates new media contexts. This book is not a prescriptive guide to using grids. Instead, it looks at the principles behind grid usage to give you the ability to tackle a wide variety of graphic design problems, which in turn opens up ample opportunities for expression and creativity.

 

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 designed to aid readers in their own work, this richly illustrated book is an invaluable guide to the often underused tool of grids within design and visual communication.
