Grid Builder – Creating stunning lettering layouts has never been easier!

Something that a lot of people struggle with is laying out a great composition within your hand lettering work. You have the quote or words you want to use, you know the style, but you just get stuck with how to lay it out, so it doesn’t look like letters just thrown onto a page.

So together, Ian Barnard and Stefan Kunz thought about how they could produce something that could make this process as easy as possible, but still giving everyone the tools to create completely unique pieces of art.

That’s when they came up with Grid Builder. A set of 35 individual grid shapes that you can place together to act as guides when creating your layouts. They can be resized, stretched and re-colored​ so that every layout you compose will look completely different from the next.

What’s more, they work in nearly all of the top lettering programs. Brushes in Procreate, Custom Shapes & Brushes in Adobe Photoshop and drag & drop Symbols in Adobe Illustrator. So whether you have an iPad, Surface, Wacom or Desktop Computer there is an option that can work for you.

Want to use it with your pens and pencils? No problem, compose them in one of the above programs and print it off!

Want to use it in a program not listed below? Use the Grid Builder font in apps like Keynote, Powerpoint, CorelDraw, Canva, anything that has the access to fonts.

Please note: This won’t automatically adjust your fonts to fit the grids
