Photo Essay: Grids

I enjoyed that we did a photo essay for our reading this week. I strongly feel that both drawing and finding grids was the most effective way to grasp the different concepts. Furthermore, I chose to use restaurant menus because I think they are great real life examples of how grids can be used. I think what I found most interesting about this week’s assignment was that there are infinite ways to present information using a grid layout, as exemplified through the menus I found.

Below are several menus that I liked:
