In this collection of lessons, we focus on understanding the basics of grid design. We'll get started by learning what a grid is and why it's important to layout-based designs. From there, we'll break down a grid into its basic components and learn what each one does. Next, we'll begin learning about the four basic types of grids and what types of project they are best suited for. We'll wrap things up by learning how and why it is sometimes best to compound one grid inside another. Software required: InDesign CS5.
