Layout Love compound and modular grids for your websites, by Andy Clarke
When you use grids imaginatively, they do much, much more than align content. Grids bring cohesion to a composition. They help people understand the stories you’re telling by suggesting hierarchies. Grids inform people what to read first, then next, and how much attention to pay. A thoughtfully chosen compound or modular grid leads to a wealth of possibilities and any number of exciting designs.
Compound grids are two or more grids of any type on one page. Modules repeat horizontally and vertically to form a modular grid which are a fabulous choice for bringing order to complex content.
Using modern CSS Grid, I developed four sets of reusable layout components to make prototyping and site development work simpler. I call these Layout Love and rather than keeping them to myself, I’m offering them for everyone to use.
You can use Layout Love’s HTML and CSS for any personal or commercial design project. Each set is just £2.99 and all five together are £9.99 which could save you many hours or work.
