Layout in Drupal 8

What's the best approach for building out web pages in Drupal? If you’re a designer, site builder, themer or editor in charge of producing a functioning website, layout is an important consideration.

Of course we’re talking about content, but also functionality and design – you likely have custom designs you need to turn into functioning webpages, complete with different regions, different media, different callouts and multiple columns.
