A comprehensive look at the current state of things in the world of responsive design, with a look to possible future APIs.
Here’s a nifty trick: using text-align: justify to get a nice responsive grid layout.
I agree with David: most pre-rolled grid “solutions” are way too complicated. And in any case, applying a pre-existing grid framework for a new project seems kind of like applying a pre-existing colour palette.
As David points out, it really needn’t be so complicated.
An excerpt from Mark’s forthcoming book, which promises to be magnificent.
A really nice piece on scale, ratio and rhythms in web design.
Josh writes about the importance of using rules and systems as tools without being bound by them.
This is interesting, not because it’s yet another grid framework (which I never use anyway) but because of the way it’s doing layout: with border-box and inline-block, rather than floats. If you’re only serving up your layout styles to browsers that support media queries (which would discount older versions of IE anyway), this could make a lot of sense.
Luke catalogues layout patterns in responsive designs.
The thought process behind trying to abstract class names that are used for layout in responsive designs (and can therefore refer to different widths depending on the context). Here, the author settles on letters. In the past, I’ve approached the same kind of abstraction by using latinised names.
A great in-depth look at the tricky problem of advertising in responsive design from Mark.
In this interview Mark discusses the “content out” rather than “canvas in” thinking that informs his new canon.
Some great, considered thoughts from Mark on how CSS Grid Layout could work as part of a larger tradition in design.
A handy tool for planning grids. Limited, alas, to pixels.
The Grid System is a resource for all designers to learn about the benefits of using grid systems, golden ratios and baseline grids.
Mark's book is almost ready. Really. It's got its own site and everything so it must be true.
Richard has launched the redesign he's had bubbling away for a while now. 'Tis lovely and gridilicous.
Here's another CSS framework for grids. It could prove to be very useful for wireframing.
Pulling together a bunch of CSS tricks from a range of sources: reseting, baseline typography and grids (fixed width, unfortunately).
Mark has launched his business site. Lovely grids and typography, as you'd expect.
A really nice article by Jesse Bennett-Chamberlain detailing the process behind a site design.
Khoi has posted the slides from his grids workshop online. Download and learn.
