I changed one big thing: I increased the font size. Bootstrap sets
@baseFontSize: 13px;, but I increased it to
18px. My reasons:
I wanted a bigger font so that it would look better on my iPhone.
With the default font, too many words would end up on one line. Some 11 words or so is optimal, according to what I’ve read. And I personally tend to like such a word count. For instance, I used a 11pt font in my PhD thesis instead of the customary 10pt as I liked the layout better that way.
So… what do you think about my font size? Too big? Good? Irritating? I already got feedback twice that the font was a bit big. But I also got feedback that it looked fine.
I also ask it as I’m revising the look-and-feel of the Django websites I work on for my company. I think I’ll stick to bootstrap’s default 13 pixels there. But a bit bigger might give a more luxurious, spacious feel.
Any feedback? Professional input? Everything is welcome!
