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

      Thanks for reaching out to us Loretta!

      We do not actually work with PSE ourselves, to be able to confirm if these resources will definitely work with it, however we are more than happy for you to purchase the grid builder and trial it out to see if it will work for you. Hopefully you do find these useful, however if not, please let us know and we will happily refund you in full :).

      Yay we’re so happy that you love it Linda!

      You can definitely use the font included in Powerpoint, and Ian has also provided all of these grids in PNG format, which can be used in most graphic design software, so I hope that you will find this pack useful for your projects :).

    Are these products compatible with an old product like Adobe CS-5?

      Thanks so much for commenting Frederic!

      I am really sorry for any confusion over the compatibility of this pack. Ian has unfortunately been able to confirm that the Adobe files are compatible with CS6 and newer, however he has also included all of the grids in PNG and PDF format, which should be compatible with most design software.

      We do always offer a 30 day trial period so we would be happy for you to purchase this pack and test it out in your preferred software, to see if these are useful for your projects. Hopefully you do find these handy, however if not, please let me know and we will happily refund you in full :).
