Hier wird bei Doppelseitengestaltung das Raster im Bund gespiegelt.

This is a set of instructions on how to design a brochure for a particular company. The text is getting into specifics about layout grids that don't fit the standard format. Can anyone offer any assistance here?

Explanation:
Facing (Mirrored) vs. Non-facing

While figuring out a grid, you’ll need to decide if you want the pages to mirror each other or be exactly the same. This mostly has to do with the inner and outer margins or the gutter and thumb spaces.

Facing spreads will have the same margin widths on the outsides of all the pages and the inner measurements will match each other (not necessarily the outer margins) as well. This is the most common type of setup.

Non-facing spreads will have the same margins on the left sides of all the pages and the same margins on all the right sides. In other words, the master page grid is designed as a single page, not as a spread. The advantage of designing your piece this way is that it doesn’t matter which side the page is on because both the left page and right page are identical in terms of the grid structure.
