Grid Calculator: Streamline Layouts in Print and Web Design

Are you looking to whip up a custom grid layout but are tangled in measurements?

Enhance your initial design process with the Grid Calculator, which is crucial even in today’s responsive web design era. It helps establish a solid grid foundation for fixed and fluid layouts. Whether for print, digital, or responsive web design, GridCalc provides precise grid measurements with just a few inputs.

For example, in InDesign, align tab stops accurately with your grid. Input your dimensions into GridCalc and manually transfer the calculated figures, ensuring accurate alignment by disabling ‘Add Starting Edge Margin to Output’.

Web designers might find Grid Calculator valuable. It calculates optimal column widths and gutters for fixed layouts but also assists in creating a harmonious base for responsive designs. 

The visual reference box displays your columns, offering immediate visual feedback.

While manual copying of values is needed, the Grid Calculator is a time-saver, simplifying calculations.
