I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading about Bauhaus, the influential early twentieth century school of art. I’m learning so much about the school that I never knew before. Given my recent experience of working at The Evergreen State College, I’ve found the similarities between my current workplace and Bauhaus rather striking.
I want to talk about the other vertical text measure, line-height. On Evergreen’s website, I chose a vertical cadence of 15px. That means, in an ideal world, all elements would align at increments of fifteen pixels down the page. Why fifteen? It’s a fairly arbitrary value. It seemed big enough to be significant, but small enough to be flexible. But that’s only the beginning.
