I'd strongly suggest not having font-sizes set using vw. There are a accessibility issues. If someone zooms in, your nicely done em breakpoints, they'll all function properly if someone zooms in or out. On most browsers, the font-sizes will not scale properly though, and it'll break a lot of the hard work you did. I'd stick with rem.

You could also set line-lengths with ch units, which is the width of the 0 character. So if you set p { max-width: 60ch` } it would be approx. 60 characters wide maximum.
