Grid-based designs for flash

There is an interesting article about designing grid systems for flash on AisleOne. I have been using grids in most of my designs and I think they are very useful. Some people say that grid-based designs are usually static and boring. I have to disagree with that statement. Grids are used to tie different design elements together and to give the design a structure. They work especially well in the news environment, where designers have less time to come up with a good design.

Below are links to tutorials and other resources that cover designing grid systems for Web sites.
