  15. 15. Responsive Design
  16. 16.  Ethan Marcotte coined the term responsive web design (RWD) in a May 2010 article in A List Apart.  Uses fluid grids and CSS3 Media Queries to adjust layout as screen width decreases.  The fluid grid concept calls for page element sizing to be in relative units like percentages, but can also use pixels or points.  All content remains and adjusts to the screen width @darcehess
  17. 17. Fluid Grids The fluid grid system uses percentages instead of pixels for column widths ensuring proper proportions for key screen resolutions and devices. @darcehess
