Posted Friday 18th Feb 2011 by James Bavington In this week’s web design video blog, Pete and I introduce the increasingly popular technique of designing websites using ‘Grids’. After a brief overview of what Web Design Grids are, and how they’ve become popular, we take a closer look at our favourite resource, The 960 Grid System . The 960 Grid System works on the core principal of designing websites to a fixed maximum width of 960 pixels.
