Vertical Rhythm

I've always found interface usability fas­ci­nat­ing. Subtle dif­fer­ences in coloring, spacing, and layout can dras­ti­cal­ly impact the func­tion­al­i­ty of your ap­pli­ca­tion. I think it's important for pro­gram­mers to understand some of the basic principals of usability.

A few years back, I read about a design concept referred to as Vertical Rhythm. The way I like to think about it is to imagine a web page as a sheet of lined paper. All text is written upon the lines, which is referred to as the baseline. A heading could pass through multiple lines, but it shouldn't impact the following text's ability to align with the baseline.

Why go through the continue.
