RESPONSIVE DESIGN Case Study at RI.gov Hillary Hartley NIC Inc.
WHAT IS RESPONSIVE DESIGN? ‣ CSS Media Queries ‣ Fluid Grids ‣ Flexible Assets
CSS MEDIA QUERIES Media Queries enable designers to add CSS based on different screen sizes, device orientation (portrait vs landscape) or pixel density (Apple’s Retina displays vs an old desktop monitor).
FLUID GRIDS Fluid grids enable designers to create ﬂexible multi-column layouts that are based on percentage values, rather than pixels. End result: Designs that stretch and shrink to ﬁt the browser.
