Well, no. Good design is inherently accessible. Saying it stops you being creative is a bad excuse for NOT doing a good design. I’m going to take you through why it is so, purely from a visual…
We've been designing a number of sites using responsive web design (RWD) techniques and have developed a design process that works well for us. Following David's in-depth article about RWD, I wanted to introduce a few practical points concerning the…
