At work someone asked me to design a “Cold Air Return Vent Cover,” 9 7/8″ x 11 3/4″. I had fun with it, and decided to post photo renderings of the designs. (Created in SolidWorks 2009).
Elastic Layout is important to me because in an era where one viewer may have a 800 x 600 pixel monitor, another may be viewing it on a wall-sized display via high-def projector. I wanted a design that will render consistently across all displays (with the possible exception of mobile-phone browsers), and it seems that entering sizes in pixels or percentages presents other limitations.
