For a while now I have been fiddling with my own design of GP and have progressed quite a bit.
The thing that has been bothering me for a while now is that I have mainly been working with a 133%-170% zoom level in Firefox using a 28” 4K screen with a WQHD resolution enabled and a 24” Full HD screen. On both the website, so the homepage and the according subpages look all right – at 133% that is, although I would rather let them be displayed at a 150% zoom level. On the 4k 28” screen at WQHD or 4K even 133% look quite small.
Of course once you go to 100% most items will look even smaller which I noticed once I used a different PC/screen/resolution – call it a late newbie discovery.
Now my question is: What is the best way to go? Do I just enlarge everything to reach a certain kind of ratio and if so – what would be the best way to do it?
Or should I just stick to the assumption that most users’ browsers will be zoomed in by default anyway like they mentioned here: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/38316/how-do-you-handle-clients-browser-zoom
These days there is an increasing amount of WQHD and 4K screens out there so should that influence my design decision?
I have reached a bit of an impass since have already put a substantial amount of time into the current look but feel like the homepage etc. elements should definitely be enlarged if the standard zoom level is around 100%.
So I am kind of appealing to your experience as web programmers/designers.

I think the answers in that topic you linked to far outweigh any insight I could provide here. A lot went into some of those answers – they’re great.
I’ll leave this topic open in case anyone else wants to chime in 🙂September 20, 2019 at 3:14 pm #1014866Max
As an update: I decided on increasing the overall size of the container/text/headings etc. to make it look bigger on a 24” at 100% browser zoom. That might not be the most elegant solution but everything else seems to be too complicated at this point.
I will also leave the topic open in case…well you have already mentioned why : )
