You will also understand why a mobile-first approach is ideal.Next, you will learn how to use an easily scalable CSS grid or if you prefer, use Flexbox instead. Create navigations for small screen devices using the "drawer navigation," "off-canvas" or "toggle" navigation patterns, and also implement images and media in both responsive and responsible ways. Finally, you will build a solid and meaningful typographic scale and make sure your messages and communications display correctly with responsive emails.Style and approachDesigning and developing for the web should be fun, and that’s the tone used in the book.
