Goban Club – Responsive Web Design par Ethan Marcotte : une traduction française
Le Web Design Réactif par ETHAN MARCOTTE Le contrôle qu’exercent les designers au sein du média imprimé et qu’ils désirent souvent retrouver au sein du virtuel est simplement le produit d’une limitation de la page imprimée. Nous devrions accepter le fait que le Web n’a pas les mêmes contraintes, et concevoir en fonction de cette flexibilité. Mais avant, nous devons « accepter le flux et le cours des choses. John Allsopp, « Le Maître du Web Design ». Commentant son métier, l’Anglais Christopher Wren affirmait avec un brin d’ironie que « l’architecture vise l’éternité ». Le domaine du Web est une tout autre dimension. Mais l’environnement change, peut-être plus vite qu’on ne le souhaiterait.

Responsive Web Design The English architect Christopher Wren once quipped that his chosen field “aims for Eternity,” and there’s something appealing about that formula: Unlike the web, which often feels like aiming for next week, architecture is a discipline very much defined by its permanence. Article Continues Below A building’s foundation defines its footprint, which defines its frame, which shapes the facade. Each phase of the architectural process is more immutable, more unchanging than the last. Creative decisions quite literally shape a physical space, defining the way in which people move through its confines for decades or even centuries.

Responsive Web Design: 50 Examples and Best Practices Responsive web design term is related to the concept of developing a website design in a manner that helps the lay out to get changed according to the user’s computer screen resolution. More precisely, the concept allows for an advanced 4 column layout 1292 pixels wide, on a 1025 pixel width screen, that auto-simplifies into 2 columns.

Responsive Design is Not About Screen Sizes Any More In March 2012, Guy Podjarny ran a test comparing the performance of hundreds of shiny new responsive websites across four different screen resolutions. The results were very dissapointing. (1) Two years into the rise of Responsive Web Design, after every imaginable sort of designer and developer had jumped into the train, it took a test to almost rock the theory to its foundations.
