Build adaptive layouts without media queries

For a long time I was trying to reach a perfect visual composition on web pages. I've been having lots of pain with CSS breakpoints in my daily work and was never quite satisfied with common ways of handling the responsive layout. Recently, I discovered a very cool responsive web design trick that makes everything simple, consistent and logical, and I'm eager to share it with you.

This article is mainly about creative development, thus it's for both: front end developers who might find this technique useful, and web designers who should have a general understanding of web production and how to improve the final output. I assume you already know about CSS, breakpoints and media queries.
