    Smile Full-Width webpage Help!

    Hi all,

    I'm a graphic design student in need of web coding assistance! I'm in my final year of study and will be looking to have a personal portfolio site developed in the coming months.

    Essentially what I want to be able to do is wireframe my design in Photoshop, by following a grid system. Previously I have used the 960 grid system and downloaded a 960 grid PSD file that allowed me to design the layout, which made it easier to code.

    Now for my portfolio site I want my site to extend the whole width of the page; see Heydays for a perfect example of what i'm after. Notice that there isn't a strip of white on either side of the browser page. This is also responsive.

    I essentially want to know how I would go about doing this - having a site that is responsive (and has no white strips on the side) is there a framework that everyone uses? If so, does a PSD file or similar exist that allows me to design to a structure, so that I can send my designs to a developer for them to code my design (which would be based on a framework that allows me to span everything all the way to the edges of the page.

    Hopefully that makes sense!

    Thanks in advance,

    forget the PSD file... most are not going to use a "fluid" layout model... most if not all will be a specific fixed width...

    as for the listed site... they are using HTML5 and CSS3... with all the appropriate resets for different browsers to handle backward compatibility as well as e mobile... suspect they have a team and or resources for this...

    but it's actually quite simple... find a sample HTML5 CSS 3 responsive template... there are tons to be found... understand the workings of it... and use it as a basis to build a basic framework ....

    Yup. Ditch the PSD. You're going to have to design in the browser. Use percentage-based widths and positioning. Use em or rem units for static sizing.
