design you have created that demonstrates the above requirements. Any
additional artistic or creative work outside of the scope of UI design, even
if it's for personal enjoyment, is definitely a plus for evaluation.

Hi,

I just have a quick question as I'm somewhat puzzled by Effective Ui
blog.

The spacing between the text is so crowded and the font so small that
even the blog posts say wonderful things, it's basically unreadable.

Is it on purpose so that users subscribe to read the text? Or you
rely on the fact that people make the font readable from their
browser?

Hi Alina -

We've recently redesigned our blog and are still iterating on the
format. I've passed your comments onto the team responsible for
managing that site. Thanks for the feedback - the copy is very dense!
