Measurement is obviously CRUCIAL to the design process.

Although Canada subscribes to the metric system for most measurements, we often use OTHER systems of measurement in specific industries:
  • Construction uses the Imperial system
    • ie. 1 yard = 3 feet
    • 1 foot = 12 inches
  • Printers and publishers subscribe to the pica system
    • 16 points = 1 Pica
    • 6 Pica = 1 Inch

We will defer to those measurement systems as we explore Construction and Graphic Design
