Laziness in the Time of Responsive Design

As screens and input types evolve, we’re managing more complexity in our designs than ever before: our layouts are becoming more flexible and responsive; our interfaces, more immersive. Maybe we can look for simpler approaches? In this session, Ethan—a singularly lazy person—will walk through some responsive designs, and show how we might do a lot more with a little bit less.

As screens and input types evolve, we’re managing more complexity in our designs than ever before: our layouts are becoming more flexible and responsive; our interfaces more immersive.

 

The range of devices and screens will continue to grow – think of game consoles, watches, wall-sized displays, objects.

 

With that many devices and screens, it becomes difficult if not impossible to specify what size a “page” should be.

 

Web design has moved beyond the page to creating a content presence that can be experienced on screens of any size or shape.
