Designing for Time Travel: When Responsive Design Is Not Enough

A session at Big Design Conference 2014

Friday 5th September, 2014

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

We're going to talk about time travel.

Responsive Web Design is an approach to optimizing an experience depending on what *device* you're using, but what approaches do we have for when need to adapt to what *time* you are viewing it?

This talk will discuss challenges faced when designing sites that need to respond to time. We will also discuss tools and techniques to use that help websites become more dynamic (is there such a thing as a media query for time?).

The case study for this talk will be a wedding website. As the date for the wedding approaches and passes, visitors will care about different pieces of information. 6 months out, 3 months out, a week before, the night before, the day of, a week after, and way-way after. Another example that will be used is how the Olympics website would've been designed using these techniques.
