Item description for Basics Design: Grids (Basics Design) by Gavin Ambrose & Paul Harris...

Basics Design: Grids aims to introduce the basic principles of grid usage in graphic design.

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.

The book is not intended to be a prescriptive guide to setting up and using grids. Instead, it looks at the principles behind grid usage to give the reader the ability to tackle a wide variety of graphic design problems. The book’s main message is that a static and repetitive approach to grid use does not result in effective and creative designs. By developing a clear understanding of the many facets of the design grid, order can be delivered to a design, which in turn opens up ample opportunities for expression and creativity.

Contemporary case studies are supported by concise descriptions, technical expansions and diagrammatic visualisations, enabling the reader to fully understand the work being discussed. 

The Basics Design series also includes: Format, Layout, Typography, Image, Colour, Print & Finish and Design Thinking.
