Responsible Responsiveness

Instructor: John Hartley (@johnbhartley)


"Responsive design is not some magical tool. You can't just pop it in and 'done, it works'." Responsive design requires planning.

As usual, Content is King

It's funny that some sites talking about the importance of responsive design are themselves totally un-responsive

@johnbhartley likes Flexslider for jQuery responsive sliders

"In responsive design, your breakpoints are where your design breaks, not at specific screen sizes." - @StanGrabowski

CSS Tricks is awesome for a ton of reasons, but the easing with CSS breakpoints is one of them.

Do your scaled images look like crap in IE? First of all, stop using IE. If you must, this will make your images look way nicer in IE:

img {
  max-width: 100%;
  height: auto;
  -ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic;
