In the years following the second world war, graphic designers moved from more open-ended design practices to embrace grid-based design. Though reviled by some designers as sterile and oppressive, there is much to be said in favor of grid-based layout.
According to the graphic designer Lucienne Roberts, " A graphic-design grid is a bit like magic (now you see it, now you don't) sets of intersecting lines that help the designer decide where to put things, but that generally no one else sees. The benefits of using a grid are multifarious, ranging from the psychological to the functional, and, of course, the aesthetic. The grid embodies all the contradictions that designers struggle with. This is the designer's very own enigma code that can elevate design discourse to that of a science, and eradicate the creative block by "virtually" filling the blank page."
