9780133888218: Responsive Mobile Design: Designing for Every Device

Create Web Designs That Work Perfectly on Any Device—Simply and Beautifully!

Billions of people access the web via smartphones, tablets, and devices of all types, using every imaginable interface and display. But they all want the same thing: the right information, right now, delivered in the most aesthetically pleasing way possible. Give them what they want with Responsive Mobile Design.

Whether you’re a developer, designer, or manager, Phil Dutson teaches you principles, techniques, and best practices for delivering a successful experience to all users on all devices.

Dutson shows how to design sites that are responsive “from the start,” while keeping development simple and flexible. Next, he delivers complete technical know-how for transforming responsive designs into responsive sites. You’ll find coverage of key issues such as integrating media content, optimizing performance, and serving Retina or high-density displays.

Throughout, he combines detailed and practical explanations with functional, easy-to-reuse code snippets.

Coverage includes
• Demonstrating why “mobile first” is still a best practice
• Fusing content, structure, and beauty to deliver experiences users love
• Using responsive images to improve speed and convey visual messages more effectively
• Using grid systems without making it feel like your design is “locked in a box”
• Mastering measurement values such as px, em, rem, and viewport units—and understanding their crucial differences
• Improving the finer details of your design with web fonts
• Retrofitting current websites to prepare them for the future
• Introducing web components into your HTML markup
• Using built-in browser development tools to streamline debugging and “in-browser” prototyping

Review:

“Whether you’re building or refining your skill set, Responsive Mobile Design is the quintessential guide to getting up to speed with modern web practices. Phil’s unique background and expertise grant him insights that both the hardcore programmer and pixel perfect designer will find invaluable.”
Jacob R. Stuart, Web/UI Designer

“It’s impossible to build for the web today without taking various screen sizes and form factors into account; you never know if your user will be on a phone, tablet, or desktop. This book helps lay the groundwork for building responsive web designs. It’s really a must-read.”
Cameron Banga, Co-founder, 9magnets, LLC

“Anyone looking for a comprehensive book on responsive design tactics would do well to pick up a copy of Responsive Mobile Design. Phil does a stellar job of breaking down the how and why of RWD in this practical guide to designing for a wide spectrum of screen sizes and devices.”
Dennis Kardys, Design Director, WSOL

“While the three initial technical ingredients of RWD (fluid grids, flexible images, and media queries) still stand true, building a site today requires much more thought and know-how than it used to. This book will take you beyond the basics and teach you the ins and outs of modern web development.”
Erik Runyon, Director of Web Communications, University of Notre Dame

“Phil Dutson unveils a dummy-proof treasure trove of essential mobile design advice, resources, and examples bound to enlighten designers and developers alike. This book belongs on every web designer’s shelf–a comprehensive guide to return to time and time again.”
Kaylee White, Web Designer, SEO.com
