Elements on the grid
These are examples of elements, how each element fits on the grid and each is divisible by 4.
At this microlevel elements already have relationships with each other. This simplifies variables and creates a greater consistency in the designs.
Components on the grid
Each element in a component is aligned to the grid. Elements and components have relationships with each other and play off each others’ dimensions, which creates an easy rhythm in the design.
The simple math behind the system allows every designer to follow the rationale in each design.
