Brad Frost – Creating Responsive Interfaces

Ben Callahan – Structuring Your Workflow for Responsive Web Design

As responsive web design becomes more prevalent, our approach to designing for the web is changing. With former assumptions, as dismissive as they may have been, that the web was a fixed width, it was easier to have a more linear workflow.
