I have a requirement to design the full grid layout which automatically scales with resolution/screens by width and height. I usually worked around with columnar layout which also can scales but only by width. The main reason they say is to avoid scrolls so that the page can be displayed in all types of screens like tablets etc.
I suggested them not to go for full grid layout but unable to come up with good reasons. Only reason i was able to say was it may damage the elemental level items like font readability, problem with more width scaling and less heigth scaling.
What else can be the problems? The page may have some graphics as well.
The basic reason to suggest that way was i never saw a page which have both grid and scales accordingly to avoid scrolls. Why people dont go for this kind of design?
