Design

Mobile first onto Desktop

I have completed what I feel is my mobile layout for my website. I am stuck on how to approach converting it to look well on desktop.

I looked at the smells like bakin videos and they use grid to create columns, would I need to use grid on my mobile first design and expand it accordingly? Wouldn't this change my dimensions?

Also, If I wanted to add more content/replace images, how would I be able to do this without disrupting my CSS for my mobile version?

Thanks!

I'd look into using a framework like Foundation or Bootstrap. It will enable you to build both at the same time.
