  1. The primary design principle underlying the Web’s
    usefulness and growth is universality.
    The Web should be usable by people with disabilities.
    It must work with any form of information, be it a
    document or a point of data, and information of any
    quality—from a silly tweet to a scholarly paper.
    And it should be accessible from any kind of
    hardware that can connect to the Internet:
    stationary or mobile, small screen or large.
    —Tim Berners-Lee

  16. The control which designers know in the print
    medium, and often desire in the web medium, is
    simply a function of the limitation of the printed page.
    We should embrace the fact that the web
    doesn’t have the same constraints, and
    design for this flexibility.”

  23. Rather than tailoring disconnected designs to each of
    an ever-increasing number of web devices, we can
    treat them as facets of the same experience. We can
    design for an optimal viewing experience, but embed
    standards-based technologies into our designs to
    make them not only more flexible, but more
    adaptive to the media that renders them.”

  24. It’s my belief that in order to embrace designing
    native layouts for the web – whatever the device –
    we need to shed the notion that we create layouts
    from a canvas in. We need to flip it on its head, and
    create layouts from the content out.”

  25. My love for responsive centers around the idea that
    my website will meet you wherever you are
    —from mobile to full-blown desktop and anywhere
    in between.”
