- Fluid Grids
Fluid grids refer to fluid designs where the grid units resize according to screen size. It is about defining your own parameters for various objects in code like columns, spacing and containers.

One more way is loading different image versions to a server and displaying the proper size version dynamically depending on the used device. More
