Making and breaking the grid with “960 grid system”

There are millions of distinct designs on the web horizon. They all have more or less the styles on their own, like: 3D, cartoon, clean, dark, futuristic, geometric, grunge, minimalistic, retro, corporate, urban, vector, and many more. If we put out design diversity, most of them share the similar structure. They have header, menu, content area, sidebar or sidebars, footer, some secondary space and many more.

If you are one of those who developed HTML/CSS for every web from scratch, try to consider 960 Grid System and their demo page.

The 960 Grid System is an effort to streamline web development workflow by providing commonly used dimensions, based on a width of 960 pixels. There are two variants: 12 and 16 columns, which can be used separately or in tandem.

Well, I just see it will work for me perfectly and will save me much time in the future.

  1. Is there a grid system for Magento?

    I would love to see how to Implement Twitters Bootstrapper with Magento.

  2. Stumbled upon this post after searching for a grid system generator to compare mine against, and I’m glad I did. The 960gs is by far in my opinion the absolute best possible grid solution available. I was a die hard yahoo grids advocate but 960 is much better at the core level.


  3. Hey Tomislav,

    I’m a big fan of blueprint css, and I’ve used in a couple of personal projects with great success. The blueprint css grid generator is pretty handy.

    At this time I’m testing emastic for fluid layouts. Seems to be nice also.

    I thought 960gs too limited for my needs.
