I'm with you, John. (Open to changing my mind, too.)
Hi Tim, thanks for taking the time to talk! My first proper project using a scale and the question that keeps looping in my head is have I made a mistake in understanding? Aware that I need to have a fallback baseline but I have abandoned the notion of lots of equally spaced lines running down my page that dictate the spacing and am letting the modular numbers do the talking. Results have been surprisingly good (even in these early days and with much work to do) but stumbling upon gridlover.net today made we wonder if I'd gone off course.
