Smart Responsive Design Workshop
An advance full-day workshop on responsive interface design in 2019

In this workshop, Vitaly Friedman (co-found and creative director of Smashing Magazine), will cover practical techniques, clever tricks and useful strategies you need to be aware of when working on responsive interface design today.

You can figure out how to make a decent responsive accordion. Or a responsive table. Or a drop-down-navigation, or a carousel. But what about something slightly more complicated? How would you go around designing a responsive theatre seat selector? What about an advanced feature comparison table? What about a multi-channel multi-time-zones TV guide? An election dashboard or a live soccer coverage? In this workshop, we’ll be spending an entire day drawing and designing responsive interfaces. As a result, you’ll leave with a toolbox of practical strategies and techniques for improving clarity of your UI and maximizing revenue as a result.

Who should attend?

The workshop is intended for intermediate/advanced designers and developers who have an understanding of responsive design and how it works.

Most techniques are borrowed from mid-size and large-scale real-life projects, such as large eCommerce projects, online magazines and web applications. We won’t cover the basics, instead, the workshop covers more advanced — and often obscure and innovative techniques.
