Interview with Ethan Marcotte

June 25, 2015

Ethan and I had a chance to chat in Pittsburgh (in a loud hotel hallway, apologies) about his upcoming workshop with Karen McGrane, Responsive Web Design: Content, Code, and Collaboration. Learning about Responsive Web Design from the guy who introduced us to it and from the woman who helped us understand adaptive content, it's a rare opportunity!

There’s still a few spots left in their workshop. Get your ticket now!


Ethan Marcotte is an independent designer and author, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He coined the term “responsive web design” to describe a new way of designing for the ever-changing Web. His popular book on the topic has been widely praised, as it demonstrates how designers and organizations can leverage the Web’s flexibility to design across mobile, tablet, and desktop—and whatever might come next.

Over the years, Ethan has been a featured speaker at many conferences, including An Event Apart, SXSW Interactive, and Webstock. His clientele has included New York Magazine, the Sundance Film Festival, The Boston Globe, andPeople Magazine. He also cofounded Editorially, a collaborative writing platform.
