Three days focused on bringing designers and content strategists together. MailChimp’s Thursday-night party and Friday’s kickoff with Creative Mornings—just when you thought it couldn’t get any better.
Ready for responsive? It’s not just about layout anymore: a responsive redesign will uncover challenges with your current design, development, and publishing processes. Whether you’re just starting out or already in the thick of things, we can help you make the move to mobile and beyond.
Ethan coined the term “responsive web design” and his popular book on responsive design has been widely praised. Karen advocates for truly device-independent content in her book Content Strategy for Mobile. Together, they will help you understand the full scope of what’s involved in making a responsive project go smoothly.
If you want to know how to launch a responsive redesign right, in this session you’ll hear the collective wisdom gleaned from their work with dozens of companies that have already been through the process. This workshop is appropriate for designers, developers, content owners, and business stakeholders—anyone who participates in making a responsive redesign happen.

Our Multi-Device Future: Karen lays the groundwork for understanding why mobile and responsive design change the way that teams work together.
