Mark Boulton on creating grids for responsive design

Mark Boulton, designer, publisher and founder of Mark Boulton Design has spoken about the way responsive design is changing the way that we use grids, in an exclusive video interview you can watch on the Creative Bloq video channel.

"Responsive design has changed the way we think about grids, because grids are traditionally static," explains Boulton, author of A Practical Guide to Designing Grid Systems for the Web. "If you think about printed media, grids are derived from the form: if you think about a book, or a newspaper, the grid is derived from the shape of the paper. A browser is fluid, so we don’t have a fixed size. [It] can go from really small to a large TV or billboard - and everywhere in between.
