President Obama’s website was recently updated, and it has design / development communities geeking out. Among the site’s highlights:
- HTML5BoilerPlate — a framework for building cutting-edge, future-proof sites
- Responsive design — content dynamically resized based on screen size
- Rolling deployments — updates to the site pushed several times per day
- Mobile-first — designed for mobile browsers first, then the desktop
I love this quote from the behind the scenes post:
First and foremost, it’s a tool.
The site is beautiful without sacrificing utility. Also check out Designing Obama if the branding of the Obama campaign got you drooling in 2008.
