Our Creative Lead, Tom Prior, will be speaking at this year’s PPA Digital Conference in London on the 18th September, tackling the topic of Responsive and Adaptive web design.

Speaking as part of the event’s developer spotlights, Tom will be demystifying these closely related approaches. The talk will highlight the enduring strengths of web standards and progressive enhancement for the publishing industry, showcasing the success of this approach for a number of high-profile publications.

Tom will share his own experience of developing flexible websites for the publishing industry, and discuss how Adaptive techniques can be used to layer on device-specific enhancements to your Responsive foundations. Comparing them with a native-only approach, he hopes to highlight how these techniques work together to deliver content across an ever increasing spectrum of devices.
