Fashionably flexible responsive web design
with Andy Clarke
Responsive design has made designing flexible websites fashionable again, but there’’s more to being fashionably flexible than technology or using CSS3 media queries.
So this unique workshop — hosted by Andy Clarke (http://www.stuffandnonsense.co.uk), designer, author and speaker — puts the design back into responsive design. Andy will teach you how to design from the ‘content out’, instead of from the ‘canvas in’.
He’ll demonstrate how to separate design from layout and if you work with designs made in Photoshop, he’ll show how to deconstruct a design into its components (colour, texture and typography) before reassembling it for a fluid continuum of devices from, mobile phones to desktops and everything in between.
If you’re a web designer or developer, you’ll learn how to:
- Adapt layouts for smartphones, tablets and more
- Make decisions about navigation, content modules and layout
- Optimise typography for different screens
What hardware/software do you need?
All attendees will receive the full slide deck and example files before the workshop. Else you only need your brain and enthusiasm!
