“Good, Fast, Cheap... Pick Two.”

Designing Responsive Websites for the Future

Jim Henson once said, “Simple is good.”

We may spend a lot of time pushing around pixels in Photoshop yet it doesn't really translate to what we will see at last on our screens and devices. So now I find the practice of designing for the web is changing as fast as the development strategy we call, “mobile first”.

Open source development, new frameworks and fresh plug-ins are introduced to make the task of build-out simpler and faster. I find I am now designing on the browser, in code. Sure, I'm still making digital art to use as assets but I put things where I want them now with, go figure... math, although I still really love carrying around a fountain pen and a pad of paper. Everything starts with a good idea.
