The Grid System, the ground rules for typography and layout. Josef Muller Brockmann, the swiss designer who heavily advocated use of the grid with that lovely orange book above, Grid Systems in Graphic Design, has become synonymous with this set of design guidelines. When i went to school for design, the majority of my studies were based in learning software, thanks to these great resources i’m sharing, i’ve been able to educate myself with these universal processes of design, something i feel is seriously lacking in my generation of designers due to the technology we use today.

I also just discovered this rich online resource for grids, The Grid System, it’s a great compilation of articles, tools, books, and templates.
