Issue 179

Happy New year!

A slightly shorter than usual issue this week - I guess the majority of folk have had other things to do than write about CSS. There have been some nice review posts written however, I posted mine today and Andy Bell has a nice list on his blog.

I have been messing about with my own website this last week, I'm no designer so I hesitate to describe it as a redesign. What may be of interest is that I have created a page that will link to all the things I write or create from one place, and also a homepage for my CSS work. So, if you want to look at the things I'm working on, or read my latest articles that is where to look.

I hope 2019 is starting well for you ! Until next week,

Responsive design – Owl Studios – Medium

An article which is mostly about how designers and developers need to work as a team to do responsive design. The insight into process is interesting however it amazes me that so far along in the history of responsive design we still have these situations where designs are being thrown over the fence to be built.

I think the the rise in visual prototyping tools will be helpful here, and perhaps it has taking this long for the tooling to catch up with the need.
