Use some important points while you are desiging your next responsive website template with css3

  • develop the site for mobile first using percentages or ems, not pixels,
  • then try it in a larger viewport and note where it begins to fail,
  • redesign the layout and add a CSS media query just to handle the broken parts,
  • repeat the process until you reach the next breakpoint.
