What People Are Saying

  • Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Ethan’s straightforward approach to designing for this complexity represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build web sites for the decade to come.

  • Every so often, something comes along in our industry that defines a moment in time: Jeffrey Zeldman’s ‘Designing with Web Standards,’ or Doug Bowman’s Wired.com redesign. This book is one of those moments. Insightful, witty and practical, ‘Responsive Web Design’ points us in the direction of a new web.”

  • Dickens, Hemingway, Steinbeck, and Homer have nothing on Marcotte, who has created this new classic. Make sure you get a signed, first edition, then get a second copy (so you won’t mess up the first one by reading it).
