I’d love to agree on that, the issue is that from my (small) experience, this does not really happen. Most of the components our designer do, a simple thing like “title” and “content” of a given component does not “scale” the same in responsive (for instance title would be 24px large screen, and 18px on small screen, while content would be 18px large screen and 16px on small screen), so on the end, em would not help and I would still have to manually set it for each element of the component.

How would you tackle that then?
