The only problem with pen and paper is that it’s a pain to draw out viewport sizes for showing how your design will reflow. That’s why we like Zurb’s new responsive sketchsheets. The sketchsheets are just that – templates for sketching out layouts. We suggest taking a mobile first approach, for which Zurb recommends starting with the full-size mobile sheets.
