I was wondering about the Responsive Design CSS templates (320 and up, BluCSS, Semantic, Foundation etc). I always liked doing layouts from scratch, I've never really been a grid or a template guy, but adding in Responsive from scratch is seemingly time consuming. Both BluCSS and Foundation sound pretty good, but there is a boat load out there. Got any recommendations? Something handy, but not limiting?
I've tried 320 and up, it's good but doesn't always render well on IE. You first see the mobile version momentarily before you see the layout intended for a desktop. I don't know if this is remedied in v9. The site I'm doing is still work in progress but is supporting some but not all tablets and smart phones. I've created a Wordpress template out of it so all content is controlled by the client. the-ropewalk.co.uk. I haven't used a fluid layout so it is limited.
Anyway apart from that my thoughts on the whole concept is mixed. While I like the ease of use of layouts intended for smaller devices I still dislike how zooming into text and images are taken away from the user, so I would like to see something that really mixes up the positives of both desktop and device concepts.
