Isotope: An exquisite jQuery plugin for magical layouts Features Layout modes: Intelligent, dynamic layouts that can’t be achieved with CSS alone.

Interoperability: features can be utilized together for a cohesive experience. Progressive enhancement: Isotope’s animation engine takes advantage of the best browser features when available — CSS transitions and transforms, GPU acceleration — but will also fall back to JavaScript animation for lesser browsers.

Dealing with grids in Photoshop is a pain With GuideGuide, it doesn’t have to be.

Grids can use multiple types of measurements. Honestly, if you haven’t started downloading it by now, you’re probably a masochist. Weirdo…

Hexagonal Grids

by 1 other (via)
Hexagonal grids are used in some games but aren’t quite as straightforward or common as square grids. I’ve been collecting hex grid resources for nearly 20 years, and wrote this guide to the most elegant approaches that lead to the simplest code, largely based on the guides by Charles Fu and Clark Verbrugge. I’ll describe the various ways to make hex grids (I’ve counted 74 so far!), the relationships between them, as well as some common algorithms. Many parts of this page are interactive; choosing a type of grid will update diagrams, code, and text to match.

The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital portrait magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde. Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why. The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration. Corresponding to this digital platform, three-day festivals will be hosted in metropolises around the world. Each event will be curated by an expert from the creative industry, showcasing his or her personal view on avant-garde. For information on upcoming and past events please check the Event category on this site. The Avant/Garde Diaries is a project initiated by German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. All content remains editorially independent.

15 Great Examples of Websites using jQuery Masonry | Web Resources | WebAppers

jQuery Masonry is a dynamic grid layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip-side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically, positioning each element in the next open spot in the grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.


Designing faster with a baseline grid | Teehan+Lax

Lately, grids have become the ultimate obsession of designers and design writers: hundreds — not to say thousands — of articles, tutorials, books and websites solely dedicated to grids and their application in (web)design have been published in the last few years. A simple search on Google with the terms “grid” and “webdesign” returns almost 5 million results. There is even a movie with characters trapped in what they call “the grid” […] “a final frontier”.

The Old Fashioned » Realigning the new Twitter

by 1 other
Recently Twitter redesigned its web interface. The new panel-esque design really encourages to use the web app instead of having to tweet with desktop clients like Twitterrific or Tweetie. The interactions work as expected, and somewhat remind me of those found on Twitter for iPhone, which makes perfect sense since it’s Twitter’s official iPhone app. Overall: impressive work, and thumbs up.

GridMaker Reboot - Article - andrewingram

by 1 other
A few months ago I wrote GridMaker to aid in producing grid-based web design mock-ups in Photoshop (and later Fireworks). Whilst very primitive it was well-received and many have informed me how useful they’ve found it. At the same time it was clear that there were a number of issues so I went back to GridMaker and made a number of changes.
