Google. Much money. Such Wow. Microsoft. Very reputation. Ethan Marcotte. (Ethan Marcotte? What’s an Ethan Marcotte?)


Fo’ Sho’ Sources

We know what Google says about responsive web design; we know what Microsoft says about responsive web design. But what does Ethan Marcotte say about responsive web design? Who the hell is Ethan Marcotte, anyway?

He pioneered the whole “responsive web design” movement back in 2010 with a revolutionary uptake on how “landscape is shifting, perhaps more quickly than we might like.”

Believe it or not, he employs a heavy textually-based layout to inform us on the latest trend. Though there are a few images and supplementary visual aids, they simply serve to corroborate his complex analysis of the interwebs and its ever-expanding realm.


Yep, You Guessed It

Marcotte utilizes the most archaic yet impressive method of displaying these changes and modifications that should be made to modern-day applications. Interestingly enough, he takes a generous amount of effort and dispels it on effective website design.

…Flexible designs make no assumptions about a browser window’s width, and adapt beautifully to devices that have portrait and landscape modes. But no design, fixed or fluid, scales seamlessly beyond the context for which it was originally intended.

—Ethan Marcotte
