If you had to design for 1280 without using fluid or responsive design (project constraints), what width would you set the design to be? For example, a set width of 1140 should allow enough gutter space to accomodate various browser sizes. Would designing to 1280 be acceptable considering the new minimum resolution is 1280?
- Audience skews older (travel industry)
- Tends to research multiple sites at one time which leads me to believe multiple windows/tabs
- Don't have access to screen resolution for our audience (yet)
What is the accepted practice?
