Case 2 – Ebawa Group Website:

Our Client Ebawa Group required a group website to promote their business on the internet world. The requirement scope included:
• All Companies information along with their services , contacts and clients.
• Responsive web design and compatible with all browsers.
• Dynamic Content
• Blog
This matter is all around the web, but a definition about responsive design always come handy:

Responsive Web Design (RWD) essentially indicates that a web site is crafted to use CSS3 media queries, an extension of the @media rule, with fluid proportion-based grids (which use percentages and EMs instead of pixels), to adapt the layout to the viewing environment, and probably also use flexible images. As a result, users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to a single source of content, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling. – Wikipedia

Problem Statement
With CSS 3 design, we were confident to provide the responsive design for all devices tablets , mobiles and pc. But the issue was to make it compatible with all browsers as CSS3 is not supported in some older versions of browsers like internet explorer 7 and older.

Breakpoints

The first thing we did was to set the breakpoints, the amount of changes in the layout. It is almost impossible to do a different design to all resolutions and devices available today, so we decided the resolutions that would be the base of the design and kept a fluid design between these resolutions. In our case we are using the following breakpoints: 640px, 1024px e 1280px (remembering that 1280 is the width limit).

Mobile first

As we will have 3 base resolutions, we will have 3 different layouts. With this comes a common question: which layout I should pick to start? Starting with mobile is much more interesting and recommended, because this way we can keep the focus on important things so we can add other elements as the resolutions increase. There are a lot of articles about this issue and I suggest a really good book from A Book Apart called Mobile First, Luke Wroblewksi.

Layouts

Now that we created the information architecture it is time to create the layouts. This part depends on your methodology, I like to do wireframes on paper, because this way I can correct and try things faster. After defining the base of the architecture is time to go to the layout. A lot of things change in the moment we create the layout so I don’t see a productivity advantage in investing time on detailed wireframes.
We then used another style script based on CSS for the I.e 7 and other browsers not compatible

Media queries

Layouts are ready, time to work to make some magic happen. In terms of code I used HTML5 Boilerplate and jQuery. But what actually make the layouts break between resolutions is the media querie. CSS3 has this fantastic property and the documentations about this is huge on w3c.org, but to simplify the explanation, here I used basically the width definition to do the breakpoints.

Result
