We currently have several responsive design sites at various stages of development, including our own, and will reveal our handiwork next issue. Until then, here's a site that illustrates the concept in action: http://mediaqueri.es/
Phones, tablets and even TVs are how more and more people access the internet. Providing an optimal browsing experience for all these users, regardless of device, has been a major challenge in web development in recent years. The most common approach was to redirect mobile users to a separate website built just for their device. While this improved the browsing experience for these users, from a logistical stand point it often meant maintaining 2 websites. Enter, responsive design. Responsive design is a technique used to adapt the presentation of the site's content depending on the size of the viewer's screen. For narrow screens, content is often "stacked" in one column so the user can scroll through vertically, while on wider screens the content often takes on a more horizontal, multi-column layout. Among other things, this should eliminate the horizontal scrolling and zooming in/out that is common place when viewing a "desktop" website on a small screen device. You can think of the website as a shape-shifter, able to take on different appearances when needed (think T-1000 from Terminator 2).
