Responsive Web Design

In-House Responsive Workshops

With Karen McGrane & Ethan Marcotte

About Our In-House Responsive Design Workshops

Is your company ready for responsive? It’s not just about layout anymore: a responsive redesign will raise challenges with your current design, development, and publishing processes. Whether you’re just starting out or already in the thick of things, we can help you make the move to mobile and beyond.

We hear stories like this from companies all over the world:

  • Our desktop website content needs a complete overhaul for mobile. Where do we even start?

  • Images and other assets also need to be re-evaluated. How do we make sure we have the right sizes and formats?

  • We need move our design processes beyond the desktop. What new documents and tools do we need to make the right decisions?

  • Performance problems seem insurmountable. How do we keep from overloading our users?

  • How do we assess whether our current CMS will help us publish across platforms? What do we do if it won't?

  • Our teams and executives need new ways to work together. What does that look like, and how do we get people to change?

These are big, complex challenges. We’ve helped dozens of companies face them head-on…​and solve them.

Our in-house responsive workshops are customized for your unique needs and participants. You’ll get exactly the information and advice you need, whether in group stakeholder presentations, hands-on exercises, core team working sessions, or building future state roadmaps, and we always leave plenty of time for Q&A.

Karen and Ethan’s content strategy and responsive design workshop provided a wealth of insights and practical next steps, beyond what I had hoped for. Their presentations were informative and entertaining and both Karen and Ethan are thoughtful speakers and true experts. I highly recommend their workshop.

The RWD workshop was very informative with up-to-date, relevant topics covered by moderators who are clearly experts in the field. This was a unique opportunity to hear the great minds of user experience speak in an intimate setting. I really enjoyed the hands-on approach of the workshop, and the ability to not only learn more about responsive design, but also see some of the strategies applied within the CIBC experience’s context.

Karen and Ethan gave talks that were at the right level for our team; they were both great at presenting and answering questions. The use of time was great, we had a chance to reflect on how we could incorporate positive changes and discuss concerns. Karen and Ethan are well spoken and provided practical reasoning to add to our mental model when communicating and discussing responsive design with others outside of the room.


Karen and Ethan designed a two-day responsive design workshop for our digital teams in Saga. Without doubt this was the most enlightening, dynamic and inspiring workshop I’ve ever attended. The breadth of expertise that Karen and Ethan bring is just amazing – their knowledge of the subject matter is really world class and shows two professionals who have grappled with all the hairy questions & challenges, and come out the other side ready to help others do the same. I can’t recommend them both highly enough!
