Often when I first start a project, I layout different elements on a page and then work on moving them around in order to create a well formatted design. After reading the chapter on grids, I’ve realized it may actually be much easier to start an original layout using a well formulated grid for a guide. In the past I’ve added rulers and also clicked on “show document grid” for structure on my page. Now moving into this magazine project where layout is so important, I’m going to use grids much more often to help format my layout. Grids really do help to create “harmony out of chaos”.
