Footers are always tricky, aren't they?
8 months ago
Agree wholeheartedly. My experience suggests that coming up with good constraints and sticking to them gets footer shit done faster.
"The footer will only have these 3 things in it. X, Y, Z"
Then design it, ship it, measure it.
I think you need more line height.
@Daryl Ginn I think you're right.
They are hard! I think the line-height could do with going up a bit here. I realise that might disrupt the baseline grid but it looks a bit cramped. I'm having the same issue on a site I'm working on at the moment. Breaking the grid looked better, so I'm doing it. I also never really know what to do about the varying size columns that seem to happen such as with your 'recent posts' section. Because the titles are shorter and don't quite fill the full width, it look like a smaller width column which makes the spacing look a bit funny. But I don't really know what to do about that besides putting things in blocks, or using some faint dividing lines between the sections. Anyway, nice work. It's looking really great!

I choose not to use footers, only in extreme cases like displaying pagination. Focusing only on page content tend to have better results than focusing on both (content + footer).
There is hardly any contrast between normal text and links. Any particular reason why?
