35 Beautiful and Intuitive Grid Websites for Inspiration


Intuitive Web Design

As websites have evolved from simple documents into complex and interactive applications- tools for document layouts, such as floats, were not necessarily well suited for application layouts. When it came to using a combination of tables, JavaScript, and careful measurements on floated elements, authors discovered useful work-arounds when it came to achieving desired layouts.

Layouts which adapted to the available space were often brittle and resulted in counter-intuitive behavior as space became constrained. As an alternative, authors of many web applications opted for a fixed layout which could take advantage of changes in the available rendering space on any screen.

The Mechanism Of The Grid

Grid based layouts provide a mechanism for developers/ designers in dividing the available space for a layout into columns and rows by using a set of predictable sizing behaviors; thus, the Grid element can be implemented intelligently in the reflow of elements within a webpage. Using a grid layout makes your design scalable by using percentage-based column widths, rather than fixed pixel-widths. With responsive design, the grid columns can stack on top of each other on smaller screens.

The overall concept behind grid-based design encompasses a solid visual and structural balance which one can create with them. Clean layout structures offer flexibility and enhance the visual experience of the end user, making the consistency of the page easier to follow. Units are the basic building block of a grid. They’re all uniform. Columns are the grouping of units that create the visual structure of the page, and they are not necessarily always uniform.

STRUCTURE & UNITY IN THE GRID

However, a balanced and consistently implemented design scheme will increase readers’ confidence in your site, but its innate propensity for creating order out of chaos makes it one of the most powerful tools at a designer’s disposal. The Web standards renaissance has ignited interest in grids amongst developers and designers alike within the web community, and a whole slew of CSS-based grid frameworks (like the 960 Grid System and the Blueprint ) have emerged and gained popularity, claiming to greatly reduce development time, all the while providing the same structure and unity that grids have afforded print layouts for so long.
