About

Tablets, smart phones and even televisions are being used increasingly to view the web. There’s never been a greater range of screen sizes and associated user experiences to consider. Web pages built to be responsive provide the best possible version of their content to match the viewing devices of not just today’s devices but tomorrow’s too.

Learn how to design websites according to the new “responsive design” methodology, allowing a website to display beautifully on every screen size. Follow along, building and enhancing a responsive web design with HTML5 and CSS3. The book provides a practical understanding of these new technologies and techniques that are set to be the future of front-end web development.

Starting with a static Photoshop composite, create a website with HTML5 and CSS3 which is flexible depending on the viewer’s screen size.

With HTML5, pages are leaner and more semantic. A fluid grid design and CSS3 media queries means designs can flex and adapt for any screen size. Beautiful backgrounds, box-shadows and animations will be added – all using the power, simplicity and flexibility of CSS3.

Responsive web design with HTML5 and CSS3 provides the necessary knowledge to ensure your projects won’t just be built ‘right’ for today but also the future.

Before the web, he worked as an underrated (and modest) TV actor and technology journalist, having graduated from Salford University with a degree in media and performance.

He has written four equally underrated (his opinion) screenplays and still harbors the (fading) belief he might sell one. Outside of work, he enjoys simple pleasures: playing indoor football while his body and wife still allow it, and wrestling with his two sons. His other book, Sass and Compass for Designers, is available now. Visit Ben online at www.benfrain.com and follow him on Twitter at twitter.com/benfrain.
