What Is The Golden Ratio?

The Golden Ratio is a mathematical ratio. It is commonly found in nature, and it can also be used to achieve beauty, balance and harmony in art, design ( such as: architecture, logos, UI Design…) and photography. It is a special number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part.

A Fibonacci sequence starting with 0 and 1. The previous two numbers are added together to produce the next number in the sequence: 0,1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, …  and so on to infinity.

## How to create Golden Ratio grid?

Let’s start by creating a golden rectangle. To make this simple, i’ll start with a width of 1000 pixels and height is 618 pixels. Then add a 618 x 618 square on the right side of the canvas, then a 382x 382 square… and so on.
