I am working on a small Drupal site that needs to be mobile and desktop optimized. Tablets are not a large part of the anticipated usage. The process has not been ideal. We are planning on taking a responsive approach, but due to some time and budget constraints, the account manager is suggesting taking the approach of a two-layout (desktop and mobile) responsive design.
All examples of responsive design and adaptive design and various frameworks for such approaches that I have seen have three or more stylesheets (typically to support desktop, tablet, and mobile screen widths).
- Will only two layouts be able to sufficiently handle a responsive design (without introducing an awkward layout for browser widths in the middle range)?
- Will using only two layouts actually save design and development time?
