I’m a little late linking to this, but no matter. Trent Walton, on the topic of responsive/adaptive layouts and how content architecture should be examined with scrutiny by all team members:
The production model of passing a site down the assembly line from design to development to launch seems to be an inefficient approach for responsive & adaptive site design. I think the Paravel method of gathering around a table & slugging every decision out until launch lends itself to the level of reiteration necessary for these projects. We’ve found that the best way forward is to pull all members of a team together to design, build, test and evaluate in multiple quick rounds.
And of course, Trent’s editorial artwork is terrific, as always.
