When we launched Foundation just over a year ago, we envisioned building a front-end responsive framework that would empower designers around the world to build great responsive sites from an incredible starting point. Since then, we've released several new iterations of the framework, to the delight of the worldwide design community.
As we continue to move into a mobile-driven world, we continuously improved upon our framework to ensure that designs would look great on every device.
Today, we're excited to announce a new ZURB site: Responsive. It consists of three distinct sub-categories:
We hope that this new site empowers designers to understand further the world of responsive design and approach it with great confidence and excitement.
Collecting and Sharing the Best Responsive Design Projects
With more and more designers adopting responsive design for their personal and professional projects, we felt there was a huge opportunity to showcase some of the best work built with responsive design as the core.
Upon visiting the page, you simply select a framework, style or search for a specific site. Each site features a screenshot of the desktop and mobile view. In addition, you can get an inside perspective from the designer — click through on "Take A Closer Look" to learn the story behind the visuals.
We're confident that whether you're browsing for sites to inspire you or looking for a specific example of a well-done responsive site, you'll find something that can help you push forward on your project. We'll feature sites on an ongoing basis, so make sure to check back frequently for the latest updates.
Bringing the Best Community Posts Straight to Your Inbox
You can't visit a design website these days and not come across at least one mention of responsive design. Back in late August, we saw a lot of writers writing on all sorts of things related to responsive design — new responsive site announcements, tips and tricks— the whole gamut.
Understanding the need for a single resource to highlight the best content, we put together our first edition of "Responsive Reading," and it was a hit from the start. Since then, we've released two newsletters, and are looking forward to sending our fourth edition out soon to round out the year.
No matter your job profession — designer, developer or business minded — responsive design impacts all of us, and the business needs of having an optimized mobile presence is significant. Stay up-to-date with all of the trends and important posts with our newsletter — now available on our new Responsive site. If you're interested in subscribing, simply submit your email address in the footer of the page.
Learn the Ins-And-Outs of Responsive Design
Finally, our Responsive site would not be complete without a one-pager emphasizing all of the key principles of responsive design. Whether you're a responsive veteran or just starting out, browse the page and strengthen your understanding of the fundamentals.
By understanding the key principles, you'll be empowered to advocate responsive design with your network, as well as sell the value of responsive design to those still trying to find a place for responsive design in their workflow or budget.
