BGDG November Meet-up: Responsive UI

We’ve all been there: we venture out to a website on our mobile phone or tablet and we’re greeted with a site that is practically unrecognizable, and even worse, cumbersome to use.

Remember when we browsed the internet solely from our desktop or laptop browser? While it has only been a handful of years since the ushering in of sophisticated mobile connection to the internet, it feels as if it has never been any other way.

Like yourself, we here at ABD Web Design interface with the World Wide Web from a multitude of devices on a daily basis: desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet. When it comes to designing and developing for the web each of these access points bring greater levels of complexity. As creators of all things web, we’re all confronted by an ever growing list of screen sizes, screen resolutions, and the standard plethora of browser quirks and bugs.

As designers, developers, and UX/UI professionals, we have a solution to this device complexity: RESPONSIVE DESIGN!

If you’re not already familiar with the terminology, let me give you a general idea. Responsive design is designing for the web of today; creating websites that adjust (respond) their interface to the constraints of the device that is accessing the web in an effort to provide the visitor the most optimal experience.

Here at ABD Web Design we’ve long embraced the responsive approach to designing and developing for the web. It’s baked right into the core of our design and development approach. With all that in mind I’m happy to announce that the upcoming Boise Graphic Design Group meet-up will feature Nicolas Perner presenting and leading a conversation on responsive UI.

Come out and join us for a great night of conversation, learning, and responsive interaction. To top it all off, I have a great give-away for the raffle to get you started on your responsive UI journey!
