Type and Grid

Point scale

Looking at grids and layouts wewereto try and figure out the grid of the newspaper that we brought in. Drawing out the margins, gutters and columns it allowed us to figure out what the grid layouts were. We were taught how to measure these using point size along with mm.

We were also shown how to measure time using point size and pica em. With the given text we had we were to work out the point size, measuring ascender to decender, and baseline to baseline and subtracting this, this would leave you with the leading size.
