Using Gridset to Create Awesome Web Layouts

Frameworks are great, but what if your design doesn't fit in a 12-column grid? What if the tablet layout should look different from the desktop or mobile versions? What if you don't want to remember how to nest four columns inside three columns?

Using Gridset, you can create as many different grids for a project as you like, then use those grids however you need, in Photoshop or straight to prototyping.

Colleen will show you how to quickly create traditional and unusual responsive grid designs, with no math skills required.

About Colleen

Colleen Sullivan Leh is a web and print graphic designer with over 20 years professional experience in corporate communications.

She learned CSS in 2005 during an intense weekend changing a client's site before launch, all because one element needed to break the table.

    I'm doing more and more with Responsive Web Dev. Gridset sounds like it could be a great tool. Can't wait to learn more.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
