Grid Builder – Layout Composer

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, Canva, anything that has the access to fonts.

Included in this set:

• 35 x Procreate Brushes
• 35 x Adobe Photoshop Brushes / Custom Shapes
• 35 x Adobe Illustrator Symbols
• 35 x Adobe Sketch Brushes
• 35 x Affinity Designer Brushes / Assets
• 35 x Autodesk Sketchbook Pro Brushes (PC & Mac desktop only)
• 35 x Sketch App Symbols
• Grid Builder Font .OTF & .TTF
• Individual Image Files – .PNG/.PDF/.SVG
• Composition Guide .PDF
• Installation instructions for each app

Zipped File Size: 22.2 MB

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us Colleen. Ian has not included instructions for this, however I can certainly pop you over some guides for how you can use this pack for typed text.

      I have just popped you over an email with some handy links so I hope this helps :).

    Hi There!
    Similar to Jennifer, I do not have Procreate. However, I do own Photoshop. How imperative is it to have that software program to invest in this tutorial? It seems like a fantastic investment.

      Thanks so much for commenting Rachel!

      The great news is that Ian has provided files specifically for working with the Grid Builder in Procreate, Illustrator and Photoshop. You should certainly be able to fully work with these layout composition tools in Photoshop so I hope that you have lots of fun taking them for a spin!

    Hi! Is the package compatible with Adobe’s Fresco? I see you’ve adapted it for Adobe Sketch – so I guess it will work with Fresco, but it’s good to know for sure ^^,)

      Hey Bjørg,

      Thanks for the comment on this one! This one is compatible with Sketch but as Fresco is not currently listed by the designer, I can’t guarantee that this will work for you in Fresco!

      However I am more than happy for you to check and if it isnt working for you, I will organise a refund for you :) I hope that helps!

    I am having trouble loading Grid Builder into my Procreate program on my iPad Pro. This is my first time downloading any outside product to my Procreate, am fairly new to Procreate and am also not too iPad savvy either. Can you help me?
    Thank you…Candace…..p.s. if I can get it to work I’m pretty sure I’d give it 5 stars!

      I can definitely help you with this and have just popped you over an email with a tutorial which should be able to help get you up and running with these :).
