Genre: eLearning | Oct 23, 2013 | Level: Intermediate | Language: English
Take the guesswork out of your InDesign layouts. Whether it's a business card, a poster, or a book, your design will look better if you use a grid. Join designer Nigel French as he takes you through a brief history of grids—why you should use them and when you should break them. He'll show you how to establish margins and columns, set up a layout grid, and how to fit text to a baseline grid. Plus, learn how to break the grid for graphic effect and experiment with different types of grids like 5- or 7-column layouts and radial grids.
