This report discusses how Responsive Web Design meets this challenge, and offers insight into how it delivers a better user experience. This report uses BCBusiness magazine as a broad case study, as its digital edition,, was redesigned in 2012 implementing a responsive design strategy.

Finally, this report also reviews other magazines’ websites using Responsive Web Design and records best practices.
