    I’m looking to make my site mobile friendly. I have read about grids, but honestly, i havn’t used them. For a website to be responsive to mobile design is it necessary to use grids?

    it just looks messed up on a smartphone. the deader is really small and hard to read, it glitches when you zoom in and out, the background looks like the patch pattern in photoshop, the body font is terribly spaced, and what i found weird was the portfolio section, the social buttons and the skills area are also small.


    A grid is not a complete solution to responsivity. The grid & associated framework itself has to be responsive.

    I would start with something simple like 960gs.

    A lot of people use Twitter bootstrap but, for myself, I found the whole thing way to bloated.

    You can just pick and chose which parts you want so perhaps their grid framework by itself might be useful.


    I also use bootstrap and i agree that it has much more than what is really needed.
    However you can just use their grid system for everything and not include all that other stuff.
