Responsive web design (RDW) aims at providing optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors).

Liquid design as it used to be called has been around for as long as html has been developing. My very first hand coded website was liquid design and awarded by the SPD in 1993. Back then it would suffice to code in percentages rather than fixed units.

Alas, I never could sell responsive design to any of my fortune 500 clients. No mandatory reason existed which only now became mandatory with the introduction of a wider spread of a range of devices.

Edward Boches, the tudor at BU and creative director of Mullen, has moved his high octane blog into a more elegant and efficient space.

Boches agency Mullen was first to market with a template based agency website built on WordPress CMS thereby allowing energy to focus on content rather than design.

Now that blogs are transforming to magazine formats (and vice versa), and people are becoming alert to even subtle design issues, it makes business sense to help create a more elegant and efficient web, Edward Boches has another best practice to show with his responsive blog design for creativity unbound.
