Creating stunning lettering layouts has never been easier!

Grid Builder – Layout Composer

Something that I struggle with and I know you guys do to, is laying out a great composition within your lettering work. You have the quote or words you want to use, you know the style, but you just get stuck with how to lay it out, so it doesn’t look like letters just thrown onto a page.

So together (Stefan Kunz and myself) we thought about how we could produce something that could make this process as easy as possible, but still giving you guys the tools to create completely unique pieces of art.

That’s when we came up with Grid Builder. A set of 35 individual grid shapes that you can place together to act as guides when creating your layouts. They can be resized, stretched and recolored so that every layout you compose will look completely different from the next.

What’s more, they work in nearly all of the top lettering programs. Brushes in Procreate, Custom Shapes & Brushes in Adobe Photoshop and drag & drop Symbols in Adobe Illustrator. So whether you have an iPad, Surface, Wacom or Desktop Computer there is an option that can work for you.

Want to use it with your pens and pencils? No problem, compose them in one of the above programs and print it off!

Want to use it in a program not listed below? Use the Grid Builder font in apps like Keynote, Powerpoint, CorelDraw, anything that has the access to fonts.

• 35 x Procreate Brushes

    Hello, I’m seriously considering using this because, in theory, it would save so much time. BUT I only do my work by hand. No iPad, etc. I’ve seen a couple of comments saying that this can be used for my type of work but is it possible to get a little more specifics on how I could use this?

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks for commenting Jennifer and it is really great to hear that you are interested in the Grid Builder!

      I have just popped you over an email to be able to go into further detail about using this pack for typed text using smart objects, so I hope that this helps :).
