Responsive Web Design
Let’s get started!
Today people use many different devices to browse the internet whether for business or pleasure.
Responsive web design (RWD) is the process of constructing your website so that no matter what screen size a visitor is viewing, your website will respond and self-adjust to fit that screen size. We adopted RWD early. Our group was among the first responsive web design Chicago-based teams.
The responsive web design “The Design of Tomorrow” uses current W3C standards, CSS3 media queries with fluid proportion-based grids, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment, and also flexible images that would responsively adjust on-the-fly. As a result, users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to a single source of content, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a optimal user interface, and minimize panning and scrolling.
Responsive Design vs.
Responsive web design is not intended to replace mobile user interface design although it can remove the need to design a separate mobile sites, particularly on content focused sites. To keep this simple, responsive web design is a very different way to design sites but it represents the future of where the web design technologies are going. If you want to test a website or see this type of web design in action open a newer website in your browser then slowly make the browser smaller to the size of your mobile screen if it keeps adjusting to the screen size then it was designed using responsive web design. We were one of the first web design agencies to offer Responsive Web Design in Chicago and Midwest. If you are looking for a responsive web design please contact our ArtVersion team today.
Responsive web design is a design approach that is geared towards using one central site to provide the optimal browsing experience for multiple viewing platforms. People have been calling it the web design solution of the future because it capitalizes on current market trends such as the use of mobile phones for browsing the Internet.
Responsive web design couldn’t have made its entrance to the digital marketing industry at a more perfect time. There are more people using mobile devices today and companies have been struggling to set up and market mobile versions of their sites. This new design methodology takes away the necessity of building a separate mobile site and makes it easier for companies to deliver the best website user experience possible.
More Internet users are now shopping using mobile devices. To accommodate these users, responsive web design become a standard for the eCommerce websites, particularly Magento stores. Magento is one of the most popular eCommerce platforms because of its extensive features, customization options and community support. Even with the impressive out of the box features, implementation of the responsive design is done by developing template or skin that has responsive web design functionalities.
Dedicated mobile sites are disappearing. By no means does this mean that the web is becoming less friendly to users browsing on mobile devices. If anything, it is getting better, largely due to responsive web design. Responsive design is simply adding in design elements that allow a page to respond to the screen size, and device, that a browser is using to view that page.
