Excessive grids

Yes yes, grids are nice and all, but seriously — 10 columns?! I believe Khoi Vinh showed us the importance of clear grids, and did so well. But there must be a limit. Don’t create a column for column’s sake. It creates weird indents, and seems to move more focus over on the form than the content. I thought it was supposed to ease the digestion of the content. Come on, you guys.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
