The use of isometric grids (the sort of grid used to create the Postmodem logo) is certainly nothing new and often makes a resurgence along with ‘pixel art‘, so I knew it would be easy to find a grid on the web that would help me create the logo.

The problem is, the Illustrator file with the isometric grid that I downloaded (after a quick Google search) wasn’t quite as exact as I would have liked as you’ll see from the 6400% zoomed in view in Illustrator below.

The vertical guides were just slightly off. Don’t get me wrong – I’d still be able to create the logo as the difference is hardly noticeable at all. However, this small issue bothered me enough to create my own grid and it was surprisingly easy so just in case this is useful to others I thought I’d share how I did it. (You’ll also find a set of isometric grid files to download for free at the end of this post)

Step 1 – Create a new document

File > New…
[Mac: ⌘ + N Win: Ctrl +N]

The size of the document is down to you but I wanted to use quite a large space with the potential to print large too so went for landscape A3.

STEP 2 – CREATE A Vertical Line longer than the artboard

Line tool – Keyboard shortcut: /

Draw a vertical line using the ‘Line tool’ that starts well above the start of the artboard and finishes below it (Hold down the shift key whilst drawing the line to ensure that it’s vertical).

With the line at the left hand side of the artboard as shown above (x = 0), you need to ensure that it’s vertically centred to the artboard. With the line selected, make sure the ‘Align to Artboard’ option is checked then choose ‘Vertical Align Center’ from the Path Menu Bar as shown here:

STEP 9 – Select all the lines

Select > All
[MAC: ⌘ + A WIN: CTRL + A]

STEP 10 – Create the guides

View > Guides > Make Guides
[MAC: ⌘ + 5 WIN: CTRL + 5]

As shown in the screengrab below, create your guides based on the lines you’ve created.

Once you’ve done this the lines will turn Cyan and can be used to snap objects to in illustrator. That’s it – you’re done.
