This first reading talks a lot about the layout style and design. It talks about the importance or choosing the right layout for your project and how it can make or break your project. If focuses on making decision that are pleasing to the eye as well as organizing information clearly. For my project I decided to use the grid stucture of the rule of thirds. In my project I am using photography for some of my images and since the rule of thirds is used a lot in photography I thought that it would appropriate.
The second reading focuses more on the grid layout than the first. It stresses how important it is for the designer to take the grid layout in to consideration because the grid can make elements that make different elements go together that would normally not be used together.
