Jason Grigsby on Responsive Design and Its Future

Pragmatic Institute Design Chats Podcast

“At Cloud Four, our designers code [and] it used to be that 100% of our developers had gone to art school. So, as they’re doing the more complex implementations, if they see something that feels like bad UX, our developers identify that.” 

On Design Chats, Jason Grigsby, a leading responsive design expert, talks about the innate complexities in responsive design and how designers and developers can collaborate to deliver optimal experiences for users. Jason is the co-founder of Cloud Four—a leading web design and development agency based in Portland, Oregon. He is also the author of Progressive Web Apps and the co-author of Head First Mobile Web. From tinkering on a Commodore 64 as a child to studying journalism in college before venturing into PR, advertising and design—and ultimately, co-founding his company—Jason’s path has led him to a deeper understanding of design principles, the needs of responsive design and how to overcome various web challenges. They also cover:

  • His company’s responsive design sprints
  • “Mobile-first” as a useful design constraint
  • Why web design tools still don’t adequately support responsive design
  • How designers can get a seat at the decision-making table
  • Why prototypes and performance still matter
