Web designers value their work, it's a known fact no doubt about it. And when you hire a designer, and it's not a school boy who lives with his parents, have no major commitments and make websites to earn some extra cash for the movies, chances are that you will pay a fair amount of money. So is a 200$ website a really a lost cause? Not necessarily.

For the past two months I had the opportunity to design several responsive sites. Responsive design requires from a designer particular way of thinking. We do not have clearly defined boundaries by the most popular screen resolution. Currently, the content is poured out in all directions possible. One of the ways to somehow embrace it all is the assumption that everything we put on the site should be to some extent modular. We split the content into smaller bitesize pieces so no matter what size plate we have it will be easy for us to stuff it all on it :-).

If you are a dribbbloholic and really, really bad want to join our team.
You just feel that inner calling from dribbble. At the sight of long shadow you have shaky hands, and everywhere you see small pink basketballs. You dream about rebounds at night and your "thanks for the invite" shot is already pixelperfect.
It just so happens that I have two lifetime backstage passes.
A good few months have passed since I wrote a post with an introduction to RWD. This is somehow good because now I know more about this than I knew back then, and it proves that this time was well spended.
I knew that something was up with myspace when out of nowhere increased amout of spam emails with "myspace" in heading started reaching my mailbox. To tell you the truth I thought that myspace was turning into fossil somewhere on long forgotten part of the internet.
How to motivate yourself and not lose the senses, and pursuit your dreams and not lose hope. This article is philosophical, please read at your own risk:]
I usually make a quick check of websites I made some time ago to see if everything is all right. Imagine my surprise or what I personally call near death experience, when the flash website which should be gray and awesome was basically black with poorly cut out images on top. If this sounds familiar please keep reading I've got few ideas :-)
If for the past few days, weeks, months, you constantly hear term Responsive Web Design or RWD and you kinda know what it is but not really. This article is for you :-) Those more familiar with this topic I encourage to check my blog a bit later as I will write more about RWD in few days.
