Don't Overthink It (Flexbox) Grids

Chris Coyier:

Four years ago I posted “Don’t Overthink it Grids” and it resonated with quite a few people. Even back then, I thought we might have been at Peak Grid. Someone was promoting a new grid framework practically every week.

That article was my way of saying: “Fear not! You can make a grid yourself! You don’t need a complicated framework.” It might not have been quite as fancy, but that’s how I rolled. You float a couple of elements with some percentage widths and call it a day.

These days, if you are ready to jump to flexbox for layout, DIY grids are even easier.

I love posts like these. If you’ve gotten in the habit of using a framework for your grids, Chris explains how easy it can be to create a grid of your own.
