Designing the Hi-DPI Web

A session at Chicago Web Conf 2012

Saturday 6th October, 2012

11:00am to 11:50am (CST)

Now that many smartphones, tablets, and now computers ship with high-density (or, as Apple calls them, “Retina”) displays, web designers face a new challenge. How can we design and deliver crisp, beautiful web graphics to this new generation of devices, where a pixel is not always a pixel?

I’ll talk about techniques and strategies you can use to support these devices on your sites and applications today, as well as emerging web standards that will make Hi-DPI support even easier in the years ahead. And because so many of these are mobile devices, I’ll also discuss how Hi-DPI support relates to responsive web design, for the best possible experience on every kind of screen.

The pixel is dead—long live the (device independent) pixel!
