The rise of mobile devices has meant that audiences are increasingly seeing our designs on smaller and smaller screens. A multi-screen strategy is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity. The most successful way to do this is using a responsive design methodology that allows you to separate content from design. But, designers seem to be faced with a conundrum: keep designing for a dwindling audience and scale down or go ‘mobile first’ and scale up. There is a better way, but it may require rethinking the way we design.
In this three-hour workshop, Jason Cranford Teague will lead you through the ins and outs of responsive design techniques and how to use dynamic tools to quickly prototype responsive designs, leaving paper planning behind. Bring a laptop because you may get your hands a bit dirty with the code, but don’t worry, Jason will be there to help.
-What a multi-screen strategy is. -How responsive design works. -How to plan a responsive design using lean UX. -How to develop a responsive design. -Advanced techniques for typography and images.
