Trent Walton (of Paravel, the folks behind FitText, which we also recently wrote about) posted a great piece about responsive design and the dance designers have to do when working with media queries:
As I step into my 3rd responsive project with Paravel, I’ve made a habit out of picking apart media-queried sites I happen across, noting how things get rearranged at various widths. At times, it seems as though all of the site architecture & planning goes out the window as content reflows. I’ve also found that what might work very well for one type of content or site might not work so well for another.
Note, his own site responds to browser size too!
