Responsive Web Design

Responsive Web Design | Web Design and Development: Is Responsive Design the future? | Scoop.it
Designers have coveted print for its precision layouts, lamenting the varying user contexts on the web that compromise their designs. Ethan Marcotte advocates we shift our design thinking to appropriate these constraints: using fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries, he shows us how to embrace the “ebb and flow of things” with responsive web design.
Rebecca Kosiuk's insight:

~Mobile browsing is expected to outpace desktop-based access within 3 to 5 years


~ Rather than tailoring disconnected designs to each of an ever-increasing number of web devices, we can treat them as facets of the same experience: Responsive Design


~  Rather than quarantining our content into disparate, device-specific experiences, we can use media queries to progressively enhance our work within different viewing contexts

Guest post written by Igor Faletski Igor Faletski is CEO of Mobify, which provides tools for adapting Web sites for smartphones and tablets.  Carin van Vuuren wrote a guest post last month for Forbes.com criticizing the responsive design approach to building mobile websites. She offered neither compelling arguments nor viable alternative approaches. [...]
Rebecca Kosiuk's insight:

Responsive Design fulfills the "One Web" Principle= " As far as is reasonable, the same information and services available to users irrespective of the device they are using.”

 

Google research shows that 90% of people move between devices to accomplish a goal.

The three most common ways users move between devices are:

To search again on the second device,To directly navigate to the destination site, andVia email, that is, to send themselves a link to revisit later.

^ Shows a need for same content across devices to avoid consumer confusion and increase usability.

The Future Of Design Is Adaptive

The Future Of Design Is Adaptive | Web Design and Development: Is Responsive Design the future? | Scoop.it
VideoWe’re already starting to see the limitations of responsive design. With the new types of content people are interacting with (such as 4K resolution, 3D images, and 3D printing), we have limitations on the ways we visualize content.  Design is needing to become adaptive rather than responsive. Adaptive design is the [...]
Rebecca Kosiuk's insight:

Argument against Responsive Design and For Adaptive Design

 

~Adaptive design is the idea of a user consuming content in such a way that it connects seamlessly with whatever device they’re using. Adaptive design focuses on the user not the browser. 

 

~ Responsive Design has limitations in regards to the content people are interacting with, ie: 4K resolution, 3D images, and 3D printing etc.

(These technologies however are NOT common amongst the general population for whatever reason: expense, availability and functional uses in everyday) 

 

~ A website built with adaptive design would recognize the device it’s being viewed on and change the experience accordingly. This is beneficial as each device is used differently and knowing this the designer can create experiences tailored to each device (increasing usability).

(True, but is this entirely necessary for the everyday user? Would such device be unusable or hard to use if responsive design was used as an alternative? Does the extra time and expense of creating an adaptive design for multiple devices justify the results? )
