Responsive design has recently become a buzzword, and for good reason: it captures the idea of displaying your content beautifully on each and every device. Responsive typography has also received attention, and various techniques have emerged to encourage type legibility across devices: like displaying different font weights to compensate for Retina displays. Now, an experiment by web designer Marko Dugonjic has taken the concept of responsive typography to a new level: using face detection, Dugonjic calculates the proximity a user is from his or her screen, and then adjusts font size accordingly. Of course, this isn’t an exact science; there are varying opinions on how large body type should be for proper legibility, and the eyes of the user plays an important role (that’s difficult to calculate).
