Efficiency — Grids allow designers to quickly add elements to a layout because many layout decisions are addressed while building the grid structure.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
