Next step is to make sure that all the images are scaled to the screen size automatically.
Next is to decide on the breakpoints. You have to confirm to make the breakpoints not device specific but be the design specific. Start by checking from the small screen to the large one. If it looks good on mobile, keep expanding it until the site design looks weird. You must stop there as it is your breakpoint.
The next focus is on Fonts and the content of the website.
