Hi there,

I am a web designer who has been out of the designing website game for a number of years now. I am trying to get my head around Wordpress code and responsive design but feel overwhelmed as to whether I should be using a CSS framework or not.

Also I am not sure if I should be using premium themes for wordpress design (and customising them) or build out my own core theme that I can build off (but that sounds like a ton of work!). It is in my nature to want to take the hardest way and build my own wordpress theme from scratch but the reality is that i am not sure I have the time.

I would love to hear about how you came to grips with responsive design and/or wordpress dev.
