Responsive digital design has become the trendy design request. Building all your sites (mobile, tablet and desktop) off the same code base can be great for efficiency, but it also can blind a product team to game-changing business opportunities. Mobile has a context that your laptop doesn’t: it could be with you in a store, as you commute, and on your couch. Learn the power and drawbacks of responsive design and how and when to design for context instead. This class is geared toward digital designers, product owners or channel owners tasked with creating omnichannel digital solutions.

Student Takeaways:
What is responsive design, when to use it, and how to design with it in mind
Mobile = more, not less
The fundamentals of context-driven design and how it changes your feature set and your product
5 ways to tell whether a site should be one-size-fits-all responsive or unique in each channel
