The Golden Section in Grid Design…yes or no?

Designer Mark Boulton is fond of grids…especially when it comes to effective web design.

His statement: “The Golden Section is a ratio which is evident throughout the universe as the number Phi. You can use this ratio to good effect in design by making sure that elements of your grid conform to this ratio. Using the Golden Section can ensure a natural sense of correct composition, even though it is based in mathematics it will ‘feel’ right.”
