Responsive Web Design
Also know as Mobile Friendly Web Design, are web sites designed to be accessible across all devices
regardless of screen size.
What is Responsive Website Design?
A responsive website is a single website that adapts to the device of each
visitor, whether they are on a desktop computer, mobile phone, tablet and
now even motor vehicles with web browsers. A responsive website
dynamically re-sizes its content and imagery for a variety of different screen
sizes in order to ensure the website is effective and easy to use on any
Why use Responsive Website Design?
Have you asked yourself, “What is responsive Web design?” Responsive Web design is an approach whereby
a designer, like myself creates a Web page that “responds to” or resizes itself depending on the type of device
it is being seen through.
The purpose of responsive design is to have one site, but with different elements that respond differently
when viewed on devices of different sizes. Let’s take a traditional “fixed” website. When viewed on a desktop
computer, for instance, the website might show three columns. But when you view that same layout on a
smaller tablet, it might force you to scroll horizontally, something users don’t like. Or elements might be
hidden from view or look distorted. The impact is also complicated by the fact that many tablets can be
viewed either in portrait orientation, or turned sideways for landscape view.
On a tiny mobile phone screen, websites can be even more challenging to see. Large images may “break” the
layout. Sites can be slow to load on smart phones if they are graphics heavy. However, if a site uses
responsive design, the mobile version might automatically adjust to display just two columns. That way, the
content is readable and easy to navigate.
The point is: with responsive design, the website automatically adjusts based on the device the viewer sees it
in. Are you ready to update your website to a responsive design? Call me or email me with questions and lets
