    I'm curious about others' points of views on this topic. Something I wrestle with is coming up with the most appropriate solution for potential clients; since not everyone needs a fully customized and developed website.

    I mostly agree with all the above, but specifically I'm getting tired of the over use of all caps. Especially in media, the use of all caps in headings reduces readability and is the equivalent of shouting. In Wired's case it looks like they went for a narrow typeface to shorten the headings, another problem with all caps, but I find this Modern serif with high stroke contrast even more difficult to read for long article titles.

    Problems aside, I like seeing progress and prefer flawed steps forward as opposed to static complacency.

    As Jeff Doan said above, these are just our thoughts and opinions; what matters is the site works for Wired and their readers.

    Does anyone know if super brothers did these illustrations? It sure look like their work.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Which unit do you use? rem, em or px?, Aug 20, 2014

    I use sass mixins that output REMs and PX for fall backs. I find this pretty useful for scaling UI by adjusting HTML font-size.

    Awesome idea. Warning, my account may have an annoying amount of pictures if my kids, but there is more.

    I am very close to 50/50... realistically probably 60% design and 40% code.

    Of design there is a little bit of traditional print design.
