It would help me if you could state verbally what problems you are
attempting to solve. Your screencap images leave me guessing.

For example if for clarity sake I'm assuming a desktop viewport which is
simply resized as your screencap demonstrates (not rotated), then I
don't see why you'd need a media query for the first use case. Wouldn't
setting the display property to inline-block and making the icon +
caption combos equal height suffice? (for simplicity I'm ignoring font
zoom issues)
