The increase in mobile usage has led to an expectation in consumers to have a seamless experience across all devices. This creates challenges for designers, who now need to design content that works not only on desktops, smartphones, and tablets, but on devices with varying screen sizes within each category. Responsive design is a great solution to the fragmentation of devices across smartphones, tablet, desktop, and more.

You will learn the challenges we encountered along the way and how we overcame them. You will discover best practices and methodologies to wireframe, design, and code your own responsive site.
