Description

Josef Müller-Brockmann (1914−1996) studied architecture, design and history of art in Zurich and worked as a graphic designer and teacher. In 1961 a brief presentation of the grid with text and illustrations appeared for the first time in an earlier book by the author. A master piece of design education and by far the most useful piece of design literature I have ever read.

A well-designed architecture will arrange independent components in an orchestration that has a certain clarity and symmetry to it, pretty much like one of Müller Brockmann’s posters. On a negative note, the book is plagued with misprints, an unforgivable occurrence in any publication, let alone a work on typography and one by none other than Josef Müller-Brockmann.The development of organisational systems in visual communication was the service and the accomplishment of the representatives of simple and functional typography and graphic design. The objective here is usability: information presented this way is not only read more quickly and easily, but is also more easily understood and retained in memory. His work is recognized for its simple designs and his clean use of fonts, shapes and colors, which still inspires many graphic designers throughout the world today. Grid Systems in Graphic Design: A Visual Communication Manual for Graphic Designers, Typographers and Three Dimensional Designers, 9th edition 2015, is no doubt a classic in the lore of graphic design and layout technique.

On a rudimentary level it provides a rule-based system of design that can help you to lay elements out in a design that is both useful and pleasant to the eye. Grid systems in graphic design' is a highly acclaimed title in the world of design, which "intended to provide the designer operating in two and three dimensions with a practical working instrument which will enable him to handle visual problems and solve them in terms of conception, organization and design with greater speed and confidence. The book is a must read for students and practitioners alike as it encapsulates an approach to design from which creativity may ensue.The grid is used to define the constant dimensions of the design space and elements are inserted precisely into it. Most people who have worked in web development have been forced into making visual choices somewhere down the line. My generation of designers came off the back of Carson and Brodie, who had rebelled against the Swiss style. Though irksome to encounter, the misprints can be overlooked as one is engrossed in the significance of the text and illustrations.
