As we’ve adopted responsive design—componentizing our interfaces, establishing breakpoints, and thinking content-out instead of canvas-in—we’ve learned that there’s more to it than just changing our techniques.

In this excerpt from Chapter 5 of his new book, Responsive Design: Patterns & Principles, Ethan Marcotte explores the philosophical and practical frameworks that can guide our responsive work.

This excerpt looks at the pros and cons to different responsive project approaches—from beta release to big reveal and everything in between—so you can figure out the best fit for your team.
