Creating a Golden Rectangle is pretty straightforward, and starts with a basic square. Follow the steps below to create your own Golden Ratio:
01. Draw a square
This will form the length of the 'short side' of the rectangle.
02. Divide the square
Divide your square in half with a vertical line, leaving you with two rectangles.
03. Draw a diagonal line
In one rectangle, draw a line from one corner to the opposite corner.
Rotate this line so that it appears horizontally adjacent to the first rectangle.
05. Create a new rectangle
Create a rectangle using the new horizontal line and original rectangle as guides.
