Grid me up!

Following on from their intuitive layouts, second year students spent last week exploring a number of alternative grid structures in editorial layout. Part of the project was aimed at revisiting editorial and typographic conventions as well as the mechanics of InDesign; but the real trick was not to let the perceived constraints of working with grids from adversely affecting the impact of the spreads.

Here are some of the many visual opportunities the students discovered in their grid structures...
