In case you haven't been paying attention lately, more and more people are accessing the internet from their smart phones and tablets. New gadgets of different sizes seem to enter the market every week and web browsing from portable devices is expected to outpace desktop use by 2015. Responsive Web Design means creating web sites which easily adapt their content to any size screen. While much of this is done by web developers in HTML and CSS, it's increasingly important that designers are fluent in this new workflow.|
In this workshop we will discuss:
Why you should "design for mobile first"
How to "future-proof" your site against costly redesigns
How to explain Responsive Web Design to your clients
Best practices for converting layouts to small screens
Why you should stop creating fixed width layouts in Photoshop
Erik Fadiman is an interactive designer/developer and an instructor at Seattle Central Creative Academy. He only builds responsive sites these days and likes to say, "If it isn't responsive, then it isn't web design."
