Given the constant development and popularity of mobile devices, responsible website design is essential. Unlike designing a static or fixed website, the fluidity and flexibility of a responsive website can make the design process difficult and sometimes almost impossible to visually convey your design ideas successfully.
We are here to help by highlighting some of the most useful and basic tools for Responsive design: pencil and paper. Or, just to be clearer and more precise, sketch sheets for responsive web Design.

How about something else?
Yes, seriously. An alternative solution is not bad, is it? I mean, look at all those sketch pads that cost close to$13? Okay, with your own sketchbook or book, Everything is fun and good, but, come on! 1 13 for a few sheets of paper!
How about something basic and modest for a responsive drawing? Something that is really, really, really simple! Something that is probably right next to your computer screen. Something like that … a sheet of A4 paper?
Well, some of you may find this idea strange. So before you take your vacation, I’ll stumble into a quote from Sam Hardacre, put a matter for A4 sheets:
“The best thing about A4 sheets for a responsive sketch, besides being inexpensive, is that a single sheet can be folded several times and give us the basic screen sizes we could design for. The simple A4 sheet can be used to draw a desktop layout, fold it in half, and you have two tablet-sized canvases on which you can draw portrait and landscape layouts, fold three times and have a simple smartphone Canvas to draw”.
