Mobile devices are everywhere you look and this means that everyone is using mobile devices to access websites and information, it’s therefore imperative than ever to build all your websites to be responsive. You have after all just a few moments to convince your websites visitors to answer your call to action, so you don’t want to mess up your chance with a website that is not designed to be responsive and simply turns mobile users away.

Responsively designed websites have these things in common:

Fluid layouts

The layout and elements on the page get larger or smaller depending upon the browser, within minimum and maximum limits set by the designer.

Media queries

Using CSS style sheets, the responsively designed site will call upon different style sheets based on the browser’s size.

Viewpoint

The page will render based on the viewer’s device in a way that it can be used most effectively and efficiently.

They Adapt to the User

A responsive web design will change based on the browser type that your customer is using. No matter what type of browser or size of browser your customer uses, they can easily access your information with the same content and the same overall design. It will change the display in a way that enables your user to read the information no matter what.

No Need for Two (or more) Designs

When mobile first came about, web designers were often designing more than one website to accommodate the different screen sizes and browsers. You may have even seen websites with the notice: Optimized for Internet Explorer. This type of thing can be very frustrating to consumers and is not something you want to do. Instead, create one design that works for all devices. That’s responsive design.

It’s Not Really New

The thing about responsive design is that it’s not really that new. In fact, it’s about simplicity and you’ll be using mostly HTML5 and CSS to design everything about your website. Since you want people to be able to read your site and use your site across platforms, the more simple the design, the better. Responsive design uses flexible layouts, flexible images and cascading style sheets so that the layout is changed automatically for the viewer depending on which device they’re using.

Responsive design allows your website to be viewed, used, and enjoyed regardless of the device being used. It doesn’t mean that your site will look exactly the same on each device – it’s even better than that. A well-designed responsive site will look different on each device but it will work well on each device. For instance, a smartphone has smaller screen space, so instead of a site with side bars, the content will be moved to the top for reading, side bars will be moved under the content, and buttons will remain large enough to press with a finger.

About Me

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
