Video Ristretto: Components Without Screen-based Media Queries – Chris Wright

Chris WrightA hallmark of the relatively short history of web design and development has been the often very creative use of CSS elements meant to do one thing but made to serve some other purpose entirely.

Some might find that surprising, given that this has all been invented fairly recently for specifically to design and build websites, but the reality is that CSS was always going to need to evolve as we go along.

Back at Respond 16, Chris Wright addressed one of these situations, namely using media queries to adapt components to the available space – necessary for a responsive site. Chris’ talk focused on the prospect of using element queries instead: very interesting stuff and worth 25 minutes of your time.
