You may have heard the term “responsive web design,” but what exactly is it? And how does it work? Responsive web design is “an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience…across a wide range of devices” (according to Wikipedia). What this means is that with our responsive web design services, we can create a website for your business that is easy to use and looks great on desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, or any other device.
One Website, All Devices
A responsive web design uses CSS3 media queries to create an easily viewable version of your website on a screen of any size – and we mean any size. Whether you have a 20-foot desktop computer or the smallest phone you can buy, your website will look great. To see how it works, simply resize your browser window. Instead of your window cutting off our website’s content, you’ll notice that the content resizes itself to fit into your window. Pretty neat, right? We think so.
Mobile vs. Responsive
Websites created for mobile devices are nothing new, but there’s a difference between mobile websites and responsive websites. Mobile websites are usually created to target a certain type of operating system or specific kind of phone. A website through our responsive web design services, however, pays no attention to what device you’re using and instead focuses on the size of your device’s screen (or its “viewport”).
A responsive website’s content, pictures, icons, buttons, and other elements will automatically scale to your device’s screen size. This means it’s much easier to navigate – you won’t have to pinch and drag to resize the screen in order to read what’s on it.
