Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deliver an optimal user experience to all devices—including tablets, smartphones, feature phones, laptops, and large screens—by learning the basics of responsive web design. In this hands-on guide, UX designer Clarissa Peterson explains how responsive web design works, and takes you through a responsive workflow from project kickoff to site launch.

Ideal for anyone involved in the process of creating websites—not just developers—this book teaches you fundamental strategies and techniques for using HTML and CSS to design websites that not only adapt to any screen size, but also use progressive enhancement to provide a better user experience based on device capabilities such as touchscreens and retina displays.

  • Start with content strategy before creating a visual design
  • Learn why your default design should be for the narrowest screens
  • Explore the HTML elements and CSS properties essential for responsive web design
  • Use media queries to display different CSS styles based on a devices viewport width
  • Handle elements such as images, typography, and navigation
  • Use performance optimization techniques to make your site lighter and faster

Synopsis:

Learn how to design websites that are engaging and responsive no matter which device is used to access them. This guide teaches you responsive design, using HTML5 best practices, CSS techniques, design principles and considerations, and accessibility concerns. Author Clarissa Peterson approaches responsive design techniques as part of a core set of skills all designers should possess, rather than as an add-on skill for advanced web developers. This book is ideal for any website designer, UX professional, or frontend engineer.
