Simon Pascal Klein
Pascal is a standardista graphic, web and front-end designer, and a rampant typophile. Born in Mainz, Germany—the birthplace of Gutenberg—he now works in Canberra as a contract designer and studies at the Australian National University. He's been actively engaged in the Open Source community and local web industry, notably as one of the unorganisers to first bring BarCamp to Canberra. He enjoys drinking in as much good type as he can get and has been happily bending beziers since 2004.

      Definitely check out the books listed and follow the authors on Twitter — they are a great source of information on responsive design.

  • Jessel Garcia

    Great information. Give idea about Design Podcast. Thanks . drivers

      Glad you found the information useful :)

  • Christine Golden

    I listened to the whole podcast, ordered Ethan’s book and I am totally on board with this idea.

      Great news, Christine! The book is great, and it a wonderful technique to have in your front-end development repertoire.

  • Carolyn

    Great information! I too watched the whole video and I already have Ethan Marcotte’s book on Responsive Web Design but I don’t have those others listed yet. I’m finding it hard know exactly where to start with this. I still am reading Ethan’s book but I was thinking after watching your video that it’d be really nice to take a class where someone like you or Ethan or Jeremy Keith or someone who has built such a site would be able to teach us how to build a responsive site from the ground up, showing techniques or at least the way they go about designing a responsive site. I also brought up this idea on Learnable…so I’m hoping to see a class on this in the near future. But until then…thanks for all these great resources. I’m going to go check them all out now, and probably buy some more books. :)
