Proportional Typography Illustrator

Just a really useful feature that I sometimes forget about in Illustrator.

When working with proportions rather than pixels for type scales, just use math next to your type size

Really obvious — but one I forgot about time to time.

Some good scales:

1.618 Golden Section
1.333 Musical Forth

Finally some awesome resources for anyone who doesn't have these bookmarked already Modular Scale Calculator and Grid Lover.
