Making and Breaking the Grid: A Graphic Design Layout Workshop (Second Edition) is the essential easy-to-use guide for designers working in every medium who want to take their work to the next level.

Grids are the most basic and essential forms in graphic design-and they can be the most rigid. This book shows you how to understand the rules of the grid to use them effectively, and then how to break them, resulting in phenomenal cohesive layouts. Timothy Samara explains the history of the grid and shows examples of grid basics, such as column, compound, and modular grids. He shows methods for building and using grids, and offers numerous examples of stunning design projects using a variety of imagery and typography.

Pages are filled with hundreds of large full-color layout concepts and diagrams that educate and inspire. After mastering the grid, discover how to break it using conceptual designs that deconstruct and flip the grid successfully. Split, splice, and shift; create spontaneous compositions; make narrative constructs, work on an axis; use intuitive design and more to create unique layouts or other projects. See ideas in action with eye-catching layout examples.
