I've been delving into old-school grid theory to tighten up my print design work, primarily for this: a new publication from Viewport Industries coming out this summer. The magenta diagonal lines show the Van de Graaf Canon to dictate the ideal placement of text blocks on the page; which also corresponds to Rosarivo's Gutenberg Canon, indicated by the cyan horizontal and vertical lines, which splits the page into ninths. I love this stuff!

That's seriously nerdy and inspiring!
Nerdy in a good way :)
This is really amazing, it really shows how professional you are and it's extremely inspiring for print design. Are you going to show us a bit more about this project @Elliot?
Always nice to see good grid :-)
(I usually follow the Van de Graaf method myself)
Cool! You can never go wrong with a grid like that! :-)
A little while ago I posted a shot of my new letterhead using a Penguin grid, maybe it might interest you: http://dribbble.com/shots/663941--animation-Letterhead-using-a-Penguin-Grid
Nerding out over grids is maybe my favorite thing in the world. Great job Elliot. I'd love to see the process that brought you to this solution.
Love using that grid.
So simple and nerdy. But I love it. LIke many others have mentioned, it really shows the level of professionalism and craftsmanship you put towards your work. More designers should take this much care.
I love seeing the process of these things. Each one has a unique approach to it and yours looks quite nerdy indeed! :)
Very nerdy but very cool!
What is this?! A print layout for ants?!
@Elliot Jay Stocks Are you able to provide link the resources you used?
@Rich McNabb You should check out "Basics Design: Layout" by Gavin Ambrose & Paul Harris. Also check out "Grid Calculator Pro" by Designers Bookshop.
Thanks @Grant Steele I'll take a look now!
Damn man, you're like Gridimus Maximus
My nipples just went hard.
