Grids and such

GRIDS are Great, but chaos breads creation— everyone strains to see the twisted mess of a car accident as they drive past. A grid is a basic box, a formation for constraint. I think that if we as designers find the middle road (what we are best at) and what is our personal nich we we ultimately fit into the society of design. I do not mean that we should stick to a formula. Everthing eventually comes to a point of evolution, design or otherwise. Maybe being a chameleon in the design world is not a bad thing? It is too early in our design life, we need to explore our creativity - find the best solution for ourselves as creative thinkers and designers.

The grid system is present in all things around us and it may be practically used in all types of design applications, but thinking outside of the box is a great for expanding your the mind. Things like information design feels like it is the right place for grids to be used, because obtaining the proper information is vital for communication and commerce. There is a time and place for everthing [in design] especially grids, and even chaos.
