Overview

"The first section, Making the Grid, begins with an exposition of basic grid types, illustrating and defining the most common ones used in traditional design work. A selection of relevant projects shows how these grids organize information appropriate to each application and can provide a framework for composition." "The second part of the book, Breaking the Grid, focuses on designs that challenge grid-based notions of organization. A brief discussion addressing the breaking down of structure is followed by a second set of relevant projects - this time, showing the grid reworked or discarded in favor of alternative compositional approaches." Working designers and students alike will find this book a valuable reference, as well as a source of inspiration for new approaches to laying out their projects.

    At last i bought the book

    A while ago I borrowed this book form a fellow designer and checked it out man it is an excellent piece to have. Tried to buy a copy but was sold out. Now finally I bought one. Honestly it is a must have book for all designers regardless.

    This book is great for any designer

    This book is ideal for any designer no matter the type. I am a print/web designer after reading this book, my layouts and ideas have soared to through roof as far as creativity. Great book to have.
