Responsive Design: Whose Problem Is It?

Tuesday, June 17th – 14:00

Over the last few years, there has been a lot of talk about responsive design. Almost every website now aspires to be responsive by default. Designers have been scrambling to find ways to design and cope with the additional pressures that requests for responsive design imposes upon us. I had previously made (apparently a convincing argument) of designing in the browser. But talking to more than 40 designers has made me realize that there is more at play and why it may not be a good idea to insist on designers learning to code Web technologies.
