Rolling Up Our Responsive Sleeves

A session at HOW Interactive Design Conference (HIDC) 2014 — San Francisco

Monday 17th November, 2014

10:15am to 11:15am (PST)

We’ve discussed at length the fundamentals of responsive design, combining fluid grids and media queries to create more flexible, device-agnostic sites. So does that mean responsive design is a magic formula that solves all our problems? Well, no. But thankfully, we didn’t get into web design because we wanted to be bored.

In this session we’ll review strategies for handling trickier elements that’d make even the most seasoned designer quail: stuff like advertising, complex layouts, deep navigation patterns, third-party media, and, yes, actual, honest-to-goodness content.

3 Main Takeaways:
1. Attendees will understand the fundamentals of responsive design.
2. Attendees will gain some technical strategies for tackling technical challenges in a responsive layout.
3. Attendees will have a framework for discussing design changes in a responsive layout.
