'Responsive design with paper' posted by Alexander Baxevanis on 19 October 2012. Read day-to-day thoughts on user experience, web design & the digital sector.
A few months ago, [The Author] spoke at City University London about Wireframing for Responsive Web Design where he proposed that paper could be a useful tool for responsive design.
"Since then, I haven’t had many chances to try the technique I proposed hands-on, but a suitable opportunity came up recently when we decided to look into making our own Webcredible site more responsive."
"I helped facilitate a workshop to start our responsive design project, and I decided to introduce the idea to my colleagues taking part in the workshop, both UX designers and internal stakeholders. As we were adapting an existing site, we already had a baseline for the content we could include so I started by printing out screenshots of some of our most important pages. Each person was given one or more of these screenshots, some empty paper, a pair of scissors and some glue. The only instructions I gave was to try and slice up and rearrange page content so that it fits in a single-column layout."
