Responsive UX


Responsive design is a game-changer. It has already changed the way that front-end development is practiced. But it has equally earth-shifting implications for information architecture and interaction design.

When we design and sketch, it’s all too easy to fall into familiar patterns that assume a certain amount of screen real-estate or device capability. It’s time that the principle of progressive enhancement be brought to bear on the world of UX design.

Perhaps most importantly, responsive design highlights the need for designers and developers to collaborate more closely. This workshop—led by front-end developer Jeremy Keith and UX designer James Box—will highlight the practices and processes that result in a cohesive approach to building responsive websites.

The workshop will help cross-disciplinary teams, particularly those looking to tackle large scale responsive redesigns or new builds. For example:

  • UX practitioners jumping into their first responsive design project
  • Front-end developers seeking better techniques for cross-team collaboration
  • Visual designers wrestling with demands of the ‘unknown interface’
  • Product owners aiming at towards responsive sites and services

What will I learn?

  • Why responsive design is way more than an approach to development
  • How to create the right culture for truly responsive products to emerge and then thrive
  • Group facilitation techniques that help foster shared vision and goals in unfamiliar environments
  • Why ‘deliverables’ won’t work and how prototyping can save you
