Deep dive from Ahmad. I like the coverage of
vmax, which I think I don’t reach for as often as I should.
I’m thinking that if you are doing something highly directional (e.g. a full bleed trick), then directly using
vw is necessary. On the other hand, if you’re doing a calculation where the goal is to generally factor in viewport size (like fluid margins/gaps or fluid type) that using
vmin might be more appropriate. For example, if a user has a browser window that is currently quite wide, but very short, they probably don’t need massive header text like a
vw-only calculation might come up with.
