Adapting to Responsive Web Design

Adapting to responsive web design has required a complete redefinition of how we approach the web at Jisc infoNet. It’s had an effect on every part of the service; not just in web development but from content management and creating resources, to our processes, workflows and how we manage web projects.

Most importantly, it’s highlighted the need to work more closely together; specifically to tackle large-scale responsive redesigns.

In this talk David will share Jisc infoNet’s story, explore the challenges they faced and offer some lessons learned in designing and adopting responsive web design.

This talk is aimed at helping cross-disciplinary teams with some of the challenges we faced in adopting a responsive approach to our recent large-scale redesign:

  • Designers – to think in proportion, not pixels
  • Developers – a foundation for building websites mobile-first
  • Content producers – updating your processes and tools for managing content that embraces the changing face of the web
  • Product owners/managers – creating the right culture and shared vision to bring responsive websites to life
