Readings 3.4

Design Elements

Chapter 5

In this chapter, we learn about how to put all the key concepts of the previous chapter together. Design really comes together when all components put forward are interrelated. A grid is a nice way to achieve the structure of a design. A column grid could be used because of its level of flexibility. For extremely complex projects, a modular grid may be best. Designers may also approach a grid depending on text size and shape. The width of text may determine how many columns the page may have and the amount of negative space there is, creating a grid system. A grid is only affective if it creates a visual narrative.
