Join Val Head for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Select and apply a different scale, part of Responsive Typography Techniques.
…In the last tutorial, we went through all the…steps to implement a scale that I chose for…our example page, but maybe you have a different…idea of what sort of scale you'd like to see.…And now's your chance to try it out.…Take the unstyled example page provided with this tutorial and choose…a scale that's different from the one we used last time around.…And then, apply the scale you selected to the type in the layout.…You don't need to spend too long on this, about 20 minutes will do.…And there is no…right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing a scale.…
It's all about achieving the mood in…hierarchy that you think fit's the content.…And when you are done, check my solution video to see what I came up with.…Of course, your answer doesn't need to be the same as mine, because there…are many different scales and many different…ways to apply them to our sample page.…
