Baseline Grids

To be able to increase the visual impact of my design for the magazine double page spread, I looked at how I could use the baseline grid effectively to layout the copy and increase readability.

Adjusting to a baseline grid makes it easier for the reader to read as it follows along a natural line.

The screenshots below show the process of creating a baseline grid and how I can use it effectively. This is a good technique to use when designing my double page spread, as I want to visually communicate my messages correctly and the type should look correct.
