Hello Experts,

I was wondering if there is a recommended size when creating a responsive design for desktop, tablets, and mobile devices. I know some of you may say its based on the content but I would like to know what or if there is a recommended overall design size while designing for responsive. I usually use 960px for a static default size and not just getting into responsive desig and would like to know what default size I should start my designs at. I prefer to go desktop down rather than mobile to desktop.

    Isn't the question an oxymoron.
    Design at whatever size you're happy designing at - since the final outcome has nothing to do with the size.
