Hi everybody

I would like to get information about how do you measure vertical spaces between elements in your design, is there any rule or trick? I know about 960 grid systems but the these are horizonal grids system, I would like to know what do you do exactly about vertical rythm and spaces?

There are many design principles that should be considered when compose the vertical rhythm but I usually start with some guidelines generated based on font-size and line-height. Using those guidelines you can easily keep the elements aligned to the vertical grid.

What pixelgrade said + CSS “hacks” as setting parent { display: table; } parent child { display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle; } + jQuery tweaks :)

Which one I use depends on situation.

Hello!

I won’t tell you about “black arts” ;) Because that’s up to you to discover.

But Google up using the Golden number in design.

Also, I suggest looking at best themes/sites and spoiler try to find these patterns.

Have a look: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2010/02/09/applying-mathematics-to-web-design/

Not sure – what you mean by these “display:table” tweaks ? Vertical rhythm doesn’t involve vertical align of text into a div.
