Non-Responsive Design

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the “Responsive Design” approach, and how the problem is we’re still thinking of it as an approach, as though the alternatives are equally valid and universal. There’s “regular” design or “responsive” design.

What if we started just calling the set of techniques we’ve been calling “responsive” plain old design, and came up with an alternative label for what people used to do? (Ok, my own sites aren’t all responsive, but they will be whenever I next get around to it – the point is that new designs should all be done this way).

So I took to the twitter stream for inspiration. Storify below, enjoy.
