About This Class

Welcome

In this class I'll show you how to use a little known golden ratio grid called a geometric progression to create a vintage style design.

857e65b4

The aim here is to use concentric circles to build a balanced design using rings or bands that vary in thickness. We will be using the grid to determine the size and location of each element in the design.

To keep this simple (and because it's good practice) we will explore the interplay of black space and white space.

Please check out the 'Your Project' page for more examples and downloadable resources. The grid file I use is available in the following formats:

  • Affinity Designer
  • PDF
  • Photoshop
