|German term or phrase: in Rastereinheiten gegeneinander verschoben|
|From a corporate design manual:|
Schrift: Es wird die Hausschrift xxx verwendet. Der Fließtext wird immer im linksbündigen Flattersatz gesetzt. *** Die Zeilen der Überschriften werden in Rastereinheiten gegeneinander verschoben***.
Another mystery sentence! If only I had a picture ... Does anyone know what this means? Many thanks.
|English translation:positioned (spaced) according to the layout grid|
Often corporate identity design guidelines prescribe a specific layout grid based on a predefined dimension module. All elements on a page - both text and graphics - need to 'snap' to that grid. The grid dimensions do not always correspond to the typical spacing values of the used fonts; hence the remark, that the distance between the title lines needs to comply with the layout grid, rather than follow the font's own line spacing value.
This, together with the prescribed use of certain typefaces and font point sizes, is aimed to create a uniform visual 'thickness' of the page contents: more 'packed', if the grid is tight, or more 'airy', if the lines are intentionally meant to be farther from each other.
