What is fluid type?
Type design on the web can be separated into two categories: static and responsive.
- Static type ignores the dimensions of the screen; its characteristics are independent of it.
- Responsive type responds to the dimensions of its screen and adjusts its characteristics based off them.
Responsive type can be further categorized into adaptive and fluid.
- Adaptive type only adjusts its characteristics at certain screen dimensions, called breakpoints.
- Fluid type adjusts its characteristics in proportion to screen dimensions constantly.
