Gridlover: Vertical Rhythm Typography

On Friday I mentioned the Golden Typography Calculator in my redesign post. Well, sure enough, I ran across another great typography tool over the weekend. Gridlover is a handy web app to help you establish a typographic system with modular scale and vertical rhythm.

Adjust the values for your base font size and line-height then pick a scale – like the golden ratio. Gridlover then spits out the CSS, SCSS, LESS, or Stylus for font sizes, line heights and margins to keep your paragraphs and headings on a pixel perfect baseline grid.

Ah, two of my favorite things together – the golden ratio in typography and computers doing math for me.
