Multi-device layout patterns

Writer Luke Wroblewski:

Through fluid grids and media query adjustments, responsive design enables Web page layouts to adapt to a variety of screen sizes. As more designers embrace this technique, we’re not only seeing a lot of innovation but the emergence of clear patterns as well. I cataloged what seem to be the most popular of these patterns for adaptable multi-device layouts.

I had the privilege of seeing Luke speak live at An Event Apart last year; he’s a very smart, articulate guy. Considering the higher volume of work I’m doing recently that emphasize responsive, mobile-friendly design, Luke’s patterns will come in handy.
