Grid Buildrr


3 of 5 stars
What’s this?

Designer Tom Genoni offers up a quick tool for creating layout grids, with fine-tuned control over gutters and margins, and drag-and-drop placeholders for advertising units. Not the first of its kind, but slightly more robust than others. A great start.

  1. So what do I do with the grid when I’m done? I can’t seem to save it or view the CSS or anything, even the link I sent via email just presented me with the blank starting point when I clicked it again.

  2. I’m still waiting for the magnetized grid tool for the fridge (sort of like that ‘form a sentence’ thing). Maybe even incorporate IAB standard ad sizes too into the set of magnets?

  3. I don’t understand why it’s so hard to make a grid-building tool… This sort of thing has been around in graphic design since the days of QuarkXpress.

  4. I recently made a grid layout generator:

    I wish I had seen this before I designed mine, since I may have tried to do something a bit different. Mine looks a bit too similar for my liking.

    Anyhoo! Mine does generate CSS for you, which is nice!

    More features will come (I hope), but I just wanted to get it out the door and see if anyone would find it useful.

Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
