Building a Mobile First Layout

You've been hearing about responsive design for a while. You've probably read several books and articles. You may have even started using media queries in some of your websites. But there's much more involved into building a responsive site that actually works, and that's when things begin to get complicated: Where do I start? How do I communicate this to the client? How many deliverables do I have to produce? Can I still use Photoshop and be a good designer?

In this workshop we will build a responsive layout from scratch, deciding the appropriate strategy according to our content and audience. We will cover several areas, including:

- Implications of mobile first layouts
- Progressive enhancement
- Designing/deciding in the browser
- Style tiles and pattern libraries
- Unobtrusive javascript: design for loading
