  • An Illustrator (.ai) template to plan a 3 by 3 grid. This template makes it a breeze to export individual squares with Illustrator's "Export for Screens" feature. Each artboard is sized 1080px X 1080px. To save each artboard as an image, save your file first. Then click on File > Export > Export for Screens. You will be able to view each image, select a file format, and choose the desired location to save.
  • A Photoshop (.psd) template to plan a 3 by 3 grid. This file uses Photoshop's "Generate Image Assets" feature. Each artboard is sized 1080px X 1080px. To save each artboard as an image, click on File > Generate > Image Assets. 
  • Both files include a moodboarding area where you can store your brand's logo, color palette, textures, patterns, typography scheme, and imagery to have them handy whenever you're designing the grid.
