I think we should not just try to be like Angular or Ember, but be better than them, in a typical Ruby fashion of course :smiley:
agree! as said by Alan Kay on this video: “Just play it grand”
Hi @elia, the letter height was deliberately made slightly shorter on the 'E' to compensate for the ascenders (in this case, the flames) and keep the overall shape more proportionate. This is a common typographical technique when working with letters with ascenders and descenders.
An even letter height works too but due to the upward slope along its top, makes the E look a bit too big. However once you've seen the bigger one, the other one may look too small, simply by virtue of comparison. On balance, I prefer the smaller E, however we can look at it again before finalising the design (maybe go for a height inbetween the two) :)
