Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing for the screen, part of Web Design Fundamentals.
- Designing for the constraints of the screen is perhaps…the biggest adjustment for traditional graphic designers…to make when transitioning from print to web design.…Even if you're not a print designer,…understanding the constraints of designing for…the screen is really important.…One of the first things you have to realize…is that screen sizes change and flex.…Because of this, our designs can't be static but…rather, they should be responsive and fit within…whatever container they find themselves in.…This practice has gotten a lot of attention lately…and is usually referred to as Responsive Design.…
In reality, flexible and fluid designs have been around…for years but the emergence of so many multiple screen…sizes have made this type of design the standard…way of working rather than the exception.…Even though the screens themselves have physical dimensions,…in reality, screens are infinite.…Users can scroll both vertically and horizontally when…viewing pages in sites.…So there's really no limit to the amount of content…
