The Grid System: an online resource

"Made popular by the International Typographic Style movement and pioneered by legends like Josef Müller–Brockmann and Wim Crouwel, the grid is the foundation of any solid design. The Grid System is an ever–growing resource where graphic designers can learn about grid systems, the golden ratio and baseline grids."

Wayfinding: the organization and communication of our dynamic relationship to space and the environment

"Wayfinding is the organization and communication of our dynamic relationship to space and the environment. Successful design to promote wayfinding allows people to: (1) determine their location within a setting, (2) determine their destination, and (3) develop a plan that will take them from their location to their destination. The design of wayfinding systems should include: (1) identifying and marking spaces, (2) grouping spaces, and (3) linking and organizing spaces through both architectural and graphic means."
