Grid Systems in Graphic Design This was definitely written by a German in the 60s Verystructured Some very useful ideas especially for people just getting into design Rules are good I just wish the latest edition of the book published in 2007 would have included some less dated examples I'm sure I'll be able to find some current examples of the grid system on the Internet I would like to give this book a 35 actually not uite a 4 I think it's really good packed full of information and actually pretty interesting to read as long as you do it a little bit at a time I do think though that it's a little over the top in insisting the grid is the only way to go and a bit insulting to those that choose not to use grids all the time you sort of have to look past some of the very strong grids are the best thing ever statements and absorb the information Grid Systems in Graphic Design is a timeless classic that belongs on every designer and designer wannabee's bookshelf Ripe with visual examples the book doesn't only provide you with a practical framework for design and layout for anything you might be working on web print application development it goes the extra mile to explain in the perfect amount of detail why things affect their audience in particular ways or why you should do things one way or anotherThis book dissolves a lot of challenges one faces in layout work and eliminates confusion both for designers and the clients of their finished work Things will inherently make sense and the designer's workflow becomes simplified for the better while improving their work greatlyIf you create visual things for a living or for a hobby you owe it to yourself to at least leaf through the book a couple times Grid Systems in Graphic Design is fantastic and important reading material that can be enjoyed as a reading piece or as somewhat of a reference piece This is THE classic designers book on grid systems I have a handful of grid related books and this one stands out and the most thorough and theoretical Muller Brockmann's explanations for why to make the decisions thoughtful structure that he recommends is rare wisdom that I didn't get in my design education The book is dated in a wonderful way – very Midcentury Swiss He starts off simple and then gets and complicated as the book progresses I feel like his design isn't directly applicable to a lot of contemporary work however I still find it useful both theoretically and also just to thumb through when I'm sketching up layouts – he really was a very creative inventive designer in terms of composition in spite of consistently adhering to a strict grid system I'm only giving it a 4 due to the paper uality It's super heavy nice paper however it started to yellow and age after just a few years I don't actually want my version to look THAT vintage for around 100 it should hold up much better than that This book was a great read The way it is written as a designer reading it touched every sensibility Really well structured and the words were chosed really carefull which showed how much passion was poured into it Might be a revolutionary grid book of its era but not a current one We moved on from Letraset and photo typesetting after this book has published Still good reading though as long as you are aware of it’s a history book than design And as long as you don't hundreds of orphans and widows in a design book VERY RARE illustrated hardcover book sorry no dust jacket Grid Systems in Graphic Design Raster Systeme für die Visuelle Gestaltung By Josef Müller Brockmann English version by D Stephenson English and German text This is the 5th Edition published by Verlag Niggli AG 2007 Full title Grid Systems in Graphic Design A Visual Communication Manual for Graphic Designers Typographers and Three Dimensional Designers Raster Systeme für die Visuelle Gestaltung Ein Handbuch für Grafiker Typografen und Ausstellungsgestalter A comprehensive handbook on modern typography and using the Grid System illustrated with drawings diagrams black white photographs numerous examples of graphic design Subjects include Grid and Design Philosophy; The Typographic Grid and its purpose; Sizes of Paper; Typeface Alphabets; Margin Proportions; Construction of the Grid and Type Area; Type Picture Area with 8 20 and 32 Grid Fields; Photograph Illustration in the Grid System; the Grid in Corporate Identity and Three Dimensional Design A must read book for graphic designers Keep reading this book every year I would say ; Overall very approachable but could use an update so the writing is inclusive all designers are assumed to be “he” by default and the examples when they get into examples of systems in the world feels a little racked on Would have made sense in the beginning Also the exhibition and architecture examples were weak from a human factors standpoint I was hoping it would be the Elements of Typographic style approach to the grid and this while still useful fell short of that by some measure
