Design for immersive reading


When the design needs to focus on written content, it is important to display the right amount of characters per line. The way we display the text will determine the experience of the user while reading our content.

Here are some quick tips to provide a good user experience:

  • For single column of text the suggested is 45 to 75 characters per line, ┬áthe optimal is 66 characters.
  • For multiple columns of text the suggested is 40 to 50 characters per line

I am originally from Venezuela but I have been living in Austin, Texas for the last 8 years. Web development has been part of my life for more than a decade; It started in the middle of my College years and by the time I got my bachelors degree in Electronics Engineering I was already known for delivering complex projects while delivering a good user experience.
