Magazine Spread Layouts
These magazine spreads are covering whether or not we should use grid systems. There has been a recent influx of designers with interest in what is being called "The Cult of the Ugly." This is design movement in which designers choose to embrace what is considered ugly design and focus on making design that quite shocking compared to the more traditional approach of minimalism. Francico Laranjo has taken this concept into editorial design. These spreads reference his writings about breaking grid systems. To show a contrast in opinions, this content is paired with excerpts from Josef Müller-Brockmann's book: Grid Systems as he is known for using rigid grid systems.
