Jonathan is a developer & designer with a focus in front-end development. He’s been building the web and has watched it grow and evolve since the 90’s—the days of dial-up, FrontPage Express, AOL and Geocities. He’s now a front-end designer/developer and enthusiastic about front-end architecture (structure, workflows, build processes), web performance, and giving back to the community.
Managing consistent, typographic rhythm isn’t easy, but when the type is responsive, things get even more difficult. Fortunately, Sass maps make responsive typography much more manageable.
Writing the code is one thing, but keeping track of font-size values for each breakpoint is another — and the above is for paragraphs alone. Throw in h1 to h6s, each with variable font sizes for each breakpoint, and it gets cumbersome, especially when the type doesn’t scale linearly.
