As with any new web development, responsive design provides as many headaches as opportunities. For the past year, Aryon Hopkins has been building responsive websites and will share his successes with small scale sites and tools that can be used on any size project.
Aryon’s Responsive Design Process:
- Start over with an existing framework or WordPress theme.
- Skin the theme simply for desktop, tablet and mobile.
- Profit by providing a universal, future proofed, device independent experience.
