Stuff Designers Do – Layout Grid Rules
The rule of thirds divides a design into nine sections and allows a designer to lay out things the properly. The rule of thirds applies to photos a lot of the time. The Golden Ratio, Phi, allows a designer to lay out things on a design in a way that is visually appealing. I could apply these rules of design to my designs is by placing significant elements of a design on the grid intersections, and by using the golden ratio to divide a design into sections in a way that is pleasing to the eye.
