Responsible Considerations For Responsive Web Design | Smashing Coding

Responsible Considerations For Responsive Web Design | Smashing Coding | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it
This article discusses some of the lesser practiced elements of the responsive web design ecosystem, under the umbrella of responsible web design: context-sensitive interactions, performance and progressive enhancement.


Responsive Web design has been evolving rapidly ever since Ethan Marcotte coined the term two years ago. Since then, techniques have emerged, become best practices and formed part of our ever-changing methodology. A few obvious examples are the multitude of responsive image techniques, conditional loading, and responsive design and server-side components (RESS), among many other existing and emerging strands stemming from the core concept of responsive Web design.

Is UX Your Achilles?

Is UX Your Achilles? | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it

User experience has become “the new black” in product and application development with many organizations embracing a “build and prototype” culture.

This is quite a sea-change from as recently as five years ago when UX wasn't really on anyone’s radar apart from renowned innovators like Steve Jobs. He was always obsessed with the customer experience and very much in the “nitty gritty” of product design.

36 High-Quality Flat Design Resources

36 High-Quality Flat Design Resources | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it
Flat design focuses on simple shapes, colors and typography to emphasize clarity and usability. These flat design UI kits will help you with your own projects.


In contrast to skeuomorphic design, flat design focuses on simple shapes, colors and typography to emphasize clarity and usability. It was a term coined by Allan Grinshtein of LayerVault in his post "The Flat Design Era," published last year. The release of iOS 7 proved flat design is no longer a passing fad, but rather a step forward.

The flatness of style means simplifying interface elements, removing extraneous elements and decoration — such as bevels, gradients and textures — to create a crisp, clean design that focuses on hierarchy.

Apple’s iOS 7 closely follows Google’s design principles

Apple’s iOS 7 closely follows Google’s design principles | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it

Tuesday, along with the announcement of two new iPhones, Apple officially unveiled its new mobile operating system, iOS 7. It comes with some major changes, the most apparent of which is a new look, devoid of skeuomorphs (such as notepad pages that look like paper notepads). It’s part of a broader shift towards “flat” design, a look—indeed a whole philosophy—that prefers plain, clear shapes instead of trying to make icons look like solid objects.


While it may be a major overhaul for Apple, and will doubtless influence many others, iOS 7 is not exactly the pioneer. In fact its design closely resembles that of a key rival—Google. Over the course of 18 months, starting in January 2012, some of the lead designers at Google laid out a series of principles for the company to follow in creating its own icons and logos. Some of those principles lie at the heart of Apple’s new aesthetic.

Content Strategy for Mobile Web Design - SitePoint | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it

There’s no getting away from it, mobile internet is not going away any time soon and for those designers that have been avoiding it, now’s the time to face it. Rightly so, many designers are taking the ‘mobile first’ approach to ensure that a mobile site, even if it’s a responsive one, performs to the best of its ability.

In an earlier article, I talked about how best to optimize responsive sites for performance, so I refer you to that one for tips on cutting load times and so on. This time, I’ll be looking at planning the content to address Return On Investment (ROI) and usability.

The Flat Design Era

The Flat Design Era | Website Graphic Design, UI and UX | Scoop.it

When LayerVault 2 launched earlier this spring, we believed that we were taking a risk by pursuing an entirely flat interface.

Well-loved products on the web share a similar design aesthetic, with roughly the same kinds of bevels, inset shadows, and drop shadows. For designers, achieving this level of “lickable” interface is a point of pride. For us, and for a minority of UI designers out there, it feels wrong.


We certainly didn’t invent the flat style but arriving at it was a violent process. We tore through hundreds of revisions (we have the LayerVault timelines to prove it) to potential interfaces before arriving at the answer that now makes us say “of course.” The desk at LayerVault’s original headquarters (my Manhattan apartment) still has the battle scars from objects being slammed down in anger. At one point, while working on a mockup, a MacBook was slammed shut so hard it was nearly unhinged.

Trends start everyday: an idea is adopted, passed on and before you know it it’s being discussed on design blogs. However, most trends vanish as quickly as they appeared. To paraphrase Andy Warhol, everything will be trendy for 15 minutes. Once in a while, an idea is found to have something so fundamental about it that it thrives, even after the initial clamor dies down. Responsive design was one such ‘trend’ and flat-design looks like becoming another.
