Why switch to a responsive site?
It’s simple: static sites don’t adjust to small screens. Instead, the browser shrinks them down to fit the display, making them too small to read, click or navigate. It goes without saying that visitors and search engines have a huge preference for responsive sites.
Our team here @CoffeeCup along with the passionate RSD users in our forums, are dedicated to helping you create websites that are user and device friendly. So we made a series of articles explaining exactly how to build and responsify a static site. Recreating the theme below, we list the steps from A-to-Z, starting with the article Practical responsive design.
First we’ll teach you how to create a static design. It’s as simple as dragging and dropping elements, like images and text, onto a spreadsheet.
Then we’ll show you how to manage spacing and add other design aspects such as color & typography controls, backgrounds (image, gradient…) and more. Lastly, you’ll see how the exact same tools can be used together with the Width Slider to make the design look great on all screens — from desktop to mobile and every pixel in-between.
Wait — before you get crackin’...
We’ve also updated RSD’s resource guide with fresh info and tutorials. Over the next few weeks we’ll be reviewing many of these articles helping you master each powerful feature RSD has to offer.

Think you don’t need to go responsive? We make the case that sites need to adapt or die.
Happy site designing :)
