    MetroGrid, a 12 column grid system for the common A4 page.
    Published:
MetroGrid is a 12 column x 12 row setup for the common A4 page, designed in 2010 to give my work better structure.

It also helped to put OCD tendencies to rest and speed up my workflow.

Today, I often use the 4.5mm leading rule for editorial work, but have explored far more advanced grid systems since, some of them very loose and free.

I've found that designing a project on a solid grid and then breaking out of it in a subtle way produces the best results.
