Designer Ben Martineau explains how grids can help in sketching your mockups:

Every designer has a process. Their theory, their technique, their method. With each differing from one to another, they all have at least one thing in common: sketching.

It may be a scribble on a post-it note, a doodle on a whiteboard or a squiggle in an art diary — it’s a sketch. I have found along the way, from project to project, that these sketches need a little more guidance toward the final product. A little reassurance that this idea may actually succeed, once it is a detailed design. Possibly a couple of lines, a grid, may do the trick?

My previous Art Director developed some “grid books” for our team to use. Since then, I have recreated and refined the templates and are now what you see here: A series of grid system templates, which can be easily printed to sketch up layout, logo, illustration and other design concepts.
I try to minimise detail — only text for key headlines, lines for body copy, block shapes for images, and squiggle lines or shading for any emphasis if needed.

A Dutch designer imagines a better way to brand the Korean giant.
For 21 years, the Samsung name as served as the company logo, occasionally superimposed over a wobbly blue oval. It’s the kind of logo that’s fine on washing machines and televisions, but incredibly boring on something personal, like a smartphone. Never is this more apparent than when compared to the branding of Samsung’s arch-enemy in Cupertino, which is simply the silhouette of an apple.
Regardless, Samsung sells more smartphones and tablets than even Apple does. Doesn’t it deserve branding just as good?

What if the jet of the future just replaced windows with cameras and giant digital displays?
The views afforded by the tiny airplane window—whether it’s cloud cover, city skylines, or mountain ranges—apparently aren’t good enough for design firm Technicon. Their French office has created a concept for a private jet called the Ixion that would replace windows with floor-to-ceiling digital screens that show passengers a high-resolution panoramic livestream of their external environment inside the cabin.
