About this class series

Responsive digital design has become the trendy design request. Building all your sites (mobile, tablet and desktop) off the same code base can be great for efficiency, but it can blind a product team to game-changing business opportunities. Mobile has a context that your laptop doesn't: it could be with you in a store, as you commute, and on your couch. Stop thinking of how mobile is holding you back and start realising what a fantastic opportunity it is. In this class you will learn how to design for context and provide users with a continuous experience no matter where they are or what device they are using.

This two part series is geared towards digital designers, Start-Ups, product owners or channel owners tasked with creating omni-channel digital solutions.

Part I of this series will focus on concepts behind designing for multiple devices. Website, web apps, native apps. Content, layouts, navigation, testing…we’ll cover it all. In this class you will have the opportunity to work in teams on concept development.

Part II will focuses on responsive design on the web. Learn how to adjust layouts, styling and functionality according to the user’s device in a hands-on workshop. Use the newest tools and frameworks to craft modern responsive solutions.

Takeaways

  • Understand responsive design, when to use it, and how to design with it in mind
  • Learn to design for mobile: "Think" don't "Shrink"
  • Understand fundamentals of context-driven design and how it changes your feature set and your product
  • Determine whether a site should be one-size-fits-all responsive or unique in each channel
  • Map continuous experiences for your product
  • Prereqs & Preparation

    Attending Part II? Ideally you have worked with CSS before, but it’s ok if you haven’t if you are quick on your feet. Bring your laptop along. Download Google Chrome and an editor like Brackets or Sublime Text.
