Responsive Web Design


Most of what I learned about responsive design entails designing your site to provide an optimal viewing experience for the user based on the specific device being used. With responsive design, a web site can recognize a different range of devices such as ; tablets, mobile phones, portable game systems, PCs, Macs, etc. and respond accordingly to better customize the experience. Reflecting upon this I believe such an emphasis when designing could also be used to solve other issues, though uses of geolocation technology and other ideas can be considered progressive enhancement. WordPress also seems to offer a tool to easily create responsive images in your blog.

Among the links I found insightful about this topic are:

    I liked that you called it an “optimal viewing experience.” It’s very true! Its amazing that we know can create websites that adapt to the device that its being viewed on. The articles that I read talked about the fact that before responsive web design, designers were creating websites for phone devices which wasn’t a forward way of thinking. Ethan Marcotte the creator of Responsive Web Design helped us solve this problem!
