Responsive Design: Patterns & Principles
By now, the fundamentals of responsive design—fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries—have been pretty well covered. But as the bulk of our design work has moved from pages to reusable patterns, we’ve got a host of new challenges. In this workshop, we’ll look at common approaches for designing and documenting especially challenging patterns, as well as strategies to get your team or clients on board with a pattern-driven approach.
