Published paper: Mo’ Pixels Mo’ Problems: Moving Toward a Resolution Independent Web

Since the introduction of high pixel density displays, the classic notion of the pixel, as well as the concept of a standard dpi, are fading. Web designers are no longer constrained to fixed-width web elements. With the evolution of modern display devices, designers are now responsible for thinking beyond layout and must also consider the impact of resolution. This paper will focus on various tools and techniques web designers can use to achieve resolution independence. Topics will include the pros and cons of delivery methods, resolution independent design alternatives, common responsive design techniques and more.
