LSU. Line Sh!t Up.

Today's online lecture is about alignments, and how lining things up helps us figure out what portions of a design are (or at least should be) related to other elements on a layout. That means today's content search is all about finding things that line up.

Like this stuff by Ellen Pernille Posselt Lihn and Unnie Arendrup. The design is simple enough, making use of heavy rules to compartmentalize and display content.

What I love is that they carried this idea of compartmentalization out into how they display the work. It's fabulous. And it totally feeds my OCD need for perfect alignments. It makes me want to break out all of my tools and spend hours lining them up. I can almost feel the calm washing over me now.
