How Responsive Design is Like Water

For the sake of the article, the matter state of liquid will now be referred to as water. Everyone in every part of the world can tell you what water looks like, but have you really noticed it? With all the discussion arising due to responsive design going mainstream, its troubling to see the original responsive design go unnoticed. Let’s take a look at a few examples, while also explaining how they relate to responsive design.
Example 1: Water has no True Form

As aforementioned the state of water is the only one to be fully visible, yet have no exact form. The loosely connected molecules of this state bond together to take the shape of whatever container they are in. In responsive design, the website is meant not to have any true form. Its form depends on the device it is being viewed on, or containing it.
Example 2: When Pressure is Added, Water can be Dangerous

The phrase speed over power never becomes clearer then when dealing with water. Normally, water is in a very nice refreshing state with no harm coming from touching it. However, that can easily change once the right level of pressure is added. Once the right pressure level has been reached, the safe water state quickly turns into a blade sharp enough to cut through almost anything.

In responsive design, the pressure level relates to the use of space on the viewing device . The higher level of space used then what would be considered acceptable, the higher chance the pressure to find the message in said viewing device grows.
Example 3: Water Easily Separates, Without Losing its Identity…

There are three states of matter known to be found on Earth. These states of course being that of solid, liquid, and gas. Taking into account that these three states are distinctly different, it is easy to assume that they each have a unique form. Solids are rigid and tightly packed molecules , gases are hyperactive molecules that are always just bouncing around everywhere, and liquids are closely connected molecules that have no true form.

Before steering away from this post because of the brief refresher on some chemistry notes, which may or may not have triggered haunting blocked out memories, take some time to consider something. Why would any professional creative ever be daft enough to mention anything relating to science subjects like chemistry in a blog post? And how can knowing this honestly improve my responsive design skills?
