This week I’m joined by the Father of Responsive Design, Mr Ethan Marcotte. It was great to chat with Ethan about how he arrived in the field of web design, the fundamentals of responsive design and why they’re so important, and where he sees things moving in the future.

Marcotte pioneered the term “responsive web design” and is the author of the book by the same name, Responsive Web Design.
