Responsive web design is probably the hottest topic in the design community right now. And no, I’m not just realizing this.
For the past couple of weeks, I have been reading all there is to read on the subject and been experimenting with a lot of different techniques.
People who use my skins are always asking when I will make them responsive, and why it’s taking me so long to do it.
My answer? It’s simple:
Why is it such a big deal?
Believe me, I think responsive web design is a great thing. As a designer, it’s fun to create and as a consumer of content on multiple devices: it can make life easier (or all the more tougher).
But in all honesty… why do you want it so bad?
Have you taken the time to truly understand what a responsive website design does? Do you really need to serve your “mobile” visitors a different layout based on your current content?
Or, have you been programmed by all the hype and what the ‘experts’ are doing and suddenly decide you need a responsive website over anything else?
I Need Your Opinions
I have become so fascinated by not just responsive website design, but how people react to it. I want to know why you want a responsive website, and why this new way of design is such a high priority for your website.
I want to gather as much information as possible, because let me tell you: I am working on a monster post about everything responsive web design soon, and I want your opinion to use towards that post.
So please, leave a comment expressing your honest opinion about responsive web design and why it’s so important to you.
