It is an essential reference book for designers, visual artists, architects, researchers and mathematicians.
From the simplest grids made up entirely of squares to the most complex irregular ones with infinitely unpredictable patterns of growth, the book itself is a work of art.
All visual information and forms, whether illustration, graphic design, painting or architecture are compromised of two dimensional grids and patterns, much like the way that computer information is made up of zeroes and ones.
Based upon years of research, artist and musician Carsten Nicolai has discovered and unlocked the visual code for visual systems into a systematic equation of grids and patterns.
A CD accompanies the book and contains all of the grids and patterns featured in the publication as editable vector graphic data files.
This multifunctional and universal tool can be used effortlessly on virtually any platform, operating system and graphics software such as Autodesk and Adobe Illustrator, and applied to every field of visual culture.
Grid Index can be used to map out the underlying grids of any single image or form and to create recurring geometrical grids in graphic design.
