Change of context
Following the relaunch of the Channel 4 News website, James Box – UX designer for Clearleft – will reflect on the highs, lows, successes and failures of its 'responsive redesign' (site design that resizes to fit the screen size of the device it is viewed on). He'll argue that despite its inherent challenges, responsive design may just be the catalyst that the digital industry has been waiting for.
Having heard from James on the importance and potential disruption caused by responsive design, Andy Hume will explain and showcase some of the responsive design work going on at the Guardian, where he is client-side architect. How are these technical and work flow challenges influencing the way editorial, design, and development teams work together?
