What grid do you use when designing?


#1

When designing (before coding) what grid do you use? What size for the columns, gutters, width, etc? Why?


#2

Before a large screen display trend, I use 960gs. Now since large screen display trend I used 1170px content width, 30px gutter, 12col. 1170 is the most common. since most large screen start from 1440px

I use Foundation now. I feel it is the best responsive grid.

That really does seem like a very well made grid, code-wise at least. How is the weight of it? It claims to be lightweight, but in actuality does it match up to their claims in your opinion?

I think this will be how I do it. Thanks for including the dimensions, as I use Fireworks personally.

A Foundation user is here! Very powerful with Sass and Compass workflow!
