This photo essay is a smorgasbord of Grid designs collected from varied sources like Magazines, Newspapers, Flyers, Posters, etc. all in paper format. It was indeed interesting to observe how information is laid out in layouts that sometimes look pleasing to the eye and sometimes fail to establish a connection with the reader.
- Manuscript Grid
- 2 Column Grid
- 3 Column Grid
- Hierarchical Grid
Other interesting grid design examples
I liked collecting these variety of examples which taught me how tweaking the layout can creating significantly different effects on the reader. For example the 3 column grid is not so appealing as compared to the 2 column grid. The yellow background and the dark font over it calls for immediate attention. Also, the modular grid would be best suited for coupons printing. The message of ‘cut the coupons here’ is communicated almost immediately. In conclusion, the exploration informed me about the spectrum of layouts and grids used in printing different kinds of information.
Thanks for stopping by and reading! 🙂
