Grid System

October 23, 2008

For my most recent project I am using a grid system to help me design my slides in Keynote. I read about the grid system in Nancy Duarte’s book slide:ology. I really wanted to have unity throughout all of my slides since my project needed to be 30-60 slides in length. In slide:ology Duarte says, “A grid system provides as flexible way to organize your content.”  If found this to be true as I was working on my slides. It gave the the flexibility I needed while at the same time providing structure to the slides. The grid I used was a four column gird. I have posted a few pictures of the slides I created with the grid still in place. I will definitely use the grid again when I create my next project.
