Responsive Design is the new norm. If your website is not responsive it probably needs to be updated. I enjoy the challenge of creating end user experiences that meet client needs and work well on any screen size or device.
A proof of concept was completed for a client website using jQuery Mobile. The design was eventually ported to Sitefinity to allow content administrators to maintain their own responsive web pages.
Bootstrap is created by Twitter and is one of the most popular responsive design frameworks currently in use. Utilizing the Bootstrap framework is often a good choice for clients that would like a mobile first coded approach to their build.

This was a large scale project to rebuild an existing 3000 page website to be responsive using a new CMS framework. This project did not use set breakpoints. The responsiveness of the website was achieved by analyzing how each element in the site behaved at different screen sizes. Individual media queries were created for each element separately to ensure each element was perfectly displayed at any screen size.
This project was a major redesign of the firm website. The content was moved from asp pages to the Sitefinity CMS in order to transition the day to day management of the content from the I.T department to the Marketing department. Additional functionality was added to the website including Event Registration, CLE Training Videos and Blogs.
The firm has been through three major updates to the intranet. The first update was to move the content from an outdated Microsoft CMS to SharePoint 2007. The second update was to migrate the content to SharePoint 2010 and eliminate the need for 3rd party controls. The third update moved to SharePoint 2013 and migration is currently underway to move all content to SharePoint Online.
