I haven’t been taught grids, but I’m finding out that it’s essential.
I’ve just now started using the “show grid” feature in Illustrator, and it’s helping some.
But I have a couple questions if anyone has time to answer:
1)Is there another way to design your own grids, an easier way that doing all the math on paper and in your head, and painstakingly pulling down the individual guides?
- How did people here learn it, and how did you get good at it?
I’m getting a lot of books that deal with grids, and it’s fascinating, like how how much room there is to get creative for each page, while still using, say, a 9 panel grid. For example, you can switch it up, by having a picture take up two panels, whereas the previous page, it might have only been one, while the rest of the boxes or columns were text.
