Rules on grids and margins for all applications


In order to keep consistent margins across various materials we use the below rules to set up new documents.

  • For A5 and above, the margins are created from three logos and a single B from the BA monogram.
  • For everything A6 and below, the rule drops to two logos.

  1. Portrait documents are set up using an 8 column grid within the margins.
  2. Landscape documents use a 10 column grid.

Gutters can be added to suit the document.
