A countdown timer is a great way to increase anticipation for a product launch or announcement on your website. In this installment of Design the Web, Chris Converse shows how to add an elegant and responsive countdown using a free jQuery plugin. By customizing the injected HTML from the plugin, and styling the results with CSS, your countdown will work across various time zones, act responsively, and look perfectly integrated into your site. The exercise files-which include a copy of the jQuery Countdown plugin-are free for all members, so get started now.
