Kelly McCathran gave a jam-packed presentation, as usual. She put responsive design in context by beginning with Adobe mobile apps. She then spoke about the coining of the term by Ethan Marcotte and how it applies not just to websites, but to all new media. Kelly showed several sites that handle responsive design well such as the Boston Globe, which coincidentally, happened to be the first newspaper to make use of the technology.


Kelly spoke about grid-based design and the fixed 960 pixel grid system in particular. She then got a little technical speaking about varieties of CSS and HTML, designing for multiple browsers, a formula for flexible or fluid grid systems and view port considerations. She then spoke about pixels, screen size, Retina displays and responsive image options. Kelly also spoke about breakpoints and relative type size and responsive forms.
