The steps to migrating toward RWD (responsive web design)

In the last post, I provided a general description of what RWD is, along with some of its benefits.  In brief, RWD websites look (approximately) the same on a variety of devices ranging from desktops to tablets to laptops to smart phones while functioning great on any device. I also mentioned that Outskirts Press is in the process of migrating its web presence to RWD.

The good news is, many of the websites where authors can learn about Outskirts Press are already in RWD, and these include all the social media sites that make up our Author Community — sites like:

Look at any of these links on a desktop, tablet, or phone and they’re going to look and work great. Our challenge then, is to migrate the rest of our web presence, namely our own pages, into RWD, too.  That’s the goal of our RWD Migration in a nutshell, and that is the process we’re currently involved in. Like all major projects, it has a couple of major milestones that increase in difficulty (and development time).

  1. Landings Pages
  2. Email Communication
  3. Newsletters
  4. Author Webpages
  5. Outskirts Press External
  6. Outskirts Press Internal

I’ll discuss each of these in turn, beginning with the Landing Pages next time.
