Why Read This Report

Responsive web design (RWD) projects have thrown a wrench into traditional waterfall approaches. Design and development efforts need greater synchronization because of the complexity that RWD brings to the table (e.g., shared elements across designs), and a number of tools can help facilitate that synchronization and planning. Mockup, prototyping tools, and responsive frameworks enable faster design development while minimizing misinterpretation of design intent. If your team thinks that it can achieve optimized digital experience exclusively using nondigital design development (e.g., pen and paper or whiteboarding), it may be time to rethink that assumption. This report outlines the three types of responsive web tools and the vendors that offer them.
