In this video, we'll learn the basics of how and why we should embrace responsive web design.

You can create a flexible website that fits beautifully on any device, rather than having to create and maintain separate versions for each device.

But how to you create a responsive website?

Responsive websites are built on a flexible, fluid grid that adapts to the browser or device that is rendering the website. When you change the browser size, it adjusts the size and layout of the images as the browser size changes.

This is because the site is built using a fluid grid, and uses percentages for the width, instead of exact pixels. Creating a fluid foundation is the first step to creating a responsive website.
