everyone! We are currently working in a project team on a design system that is primarily used to develop web applications. These web applications mainly consist of forms. One requirement here is that everything must be as compact as possible. The web applications have an extremely high content density.
With the fonts, we have currently solved it in such a way that we have a base font size of 16 px from a viewport of 0–1280 px. If the viewport is larger than 1280px, the base font size is increased to 18px.
The current question is whether we should leave the base font size adjustment from 16 px to 18 px, or whether we should go to 16 px base font size throughout.
There are certainly arguments for both variants.
I would be very happy if you could share your thoughts with me on this.
Thanks in advance!
Warm greetings Sebastian
