Responsive Web Design for a “Squishy Web”

07-14-21 Catherine Meade

How do we adapt our web designs into responsive websites with webpage breakpoints? Follow along as Catherine explores responsive web design, design hierarchy, and priority plus navigation.

Responsive Web Design (RWD) has been a key principle in our journey to build a better web since almost the beginning. Building responsively, as in building a web that adapts to different browsers and devices, has become even more important in recent years as people access the internet in new and unexpected ways.

But how do we best adapt our designs into responsive websites? How do we determine where a breakpoint should be? Why is fixing breakpoints at specific sizes no longer the best way? How do CSS units support our efforts to respond to browser size?

Catherine addressed these questions in a recent all-team meeting, sharing some basics of RWD and building a “squishy web.” You’re welcome to follow along with this video as well.
