Imaginative grid systems

A session at Port80 2016

Conversations about why the current state of web design is soulless have become more frequent since I wrote first on the subject in 2014. There are many reasons why web design has lost its soul, but uniformity in the grids we use is one reason why so many websites look so similar today.

This talk will demonstrate why and how to move beyond the grids we’ve relied on for so long. You’ll learn how to design your own grid system and discover ways to use columns, fields and modules to create designs that stand apart from the average.
