In the modern Web Design, the implementation of a grid system is getting popular and become a common practice, thanks to the 960.gs and design pioneers like Khoi Vinh. With grid system, designers are able to lay out the structures in a more refined way. However, these grid guidelines are normally invisible on the design output. But I found that there are some websites that has visible grid lines as part of the design.
Well I think this definitely is a small trend in the current Web Design. By putting grid lines on the design, it somehow shows the professionalism of the designers on how he or she structures and align the design, while it also looks cool and geeky as well. Some grid lines are clear and some are subtle. Here I present you 17 websites that has visible grid lines. Please check it out.
