Geometric Grid-Based Designs

Stage 1: Standard Grids

Some of my favourite standard grids, but there are just too many of them to share! Also I'm completely obsessed with polar grids just at they are, and I need to put more effort into experimenting with them when developing designs instead of sticking to just a few of them:)

Stage 2: Custom Grids

A selection of my favourite custom grids which look quite spectacular as is, don't you think?;) Most of these grids I have used and developed into final designs already, but there are a few which I still need to play around with and see what I can do with them!

Stage 3 + 4: Design Development + Styling

Just a small selection of different kinds of designs we have created using the techniques from this class:

1) Letterform — developed as a part of 36 Days of Type 2018 challenge. (There is a bonus video in the class where you can watch how I've developed a different letter from the same set).

2) Super simple fish which looks great styled with gradients. And there's more fishes to come;)

3) Some fun pattern tiles based on a standard grid combo:

4) Continuous pattern with elements shaded with gradients & styled with super subtle lines (in the blue areas):

5) Cannot stop thinking about Renault logo, but love this kind of structures, both just as lines and coloured with gradients:

6) A pattern tile based on an isometric grid and developed further using Live Corners. Makes me think of strawberries for some reason:D

7) Experiment with creating a graphic locomotive illustration styled with gradients and blends (you can watch the complete time-lapse of making this design is the bonus video for the class).

8) A little bit of Art Deco inspiration here: always wanted to create something like this, and styling with lines and gradients makes all the difference!

9) An abstract tech-inspired composition styled with blends.

Thanks for watching! You can find many more examples in the class and more experiments are yet to come!;)
