Responsive Design for Ebooks, a webinar presented by eBOUND Canada – December 3

When: Tuesday, December 3rd @ 2pm EST

In recent years, responsive design has become the gold standard in web design and for good reason–it is a flexible way to optimally display websites for different device types including tablets, smart phones, and computers. By applying these same principles to ebooks, publishers can simplify their ebook production workflow and be confident that the files they are producing are optimally displayed on a variety of devices.

In this 1-hour webinar presented by Champagne Choquer, attendees will learn:

  • How to implement responsive ebook design
  • Media queries for responsive design
  • Device and platform-specific CSS
  • Workflow integration
  • + more!
