What is responsive web design?

Over the last few of years every website has recorded a growing volume of traffic coming from mobile devices. Tablets and smartphones are responsible for over 50% of visits on some websites and this trend is constantly on the rise. Responsive web design is a method of presenting your website content in a way adjusted to the size and orientation of the screen your website is browsed on.

This very page will change if you resize your browser window or visit it on a tablet or smartphone. The main menu will change to your device native navigation, images will scale up or down, columns will fold and stack up and some elements can become hidden while others will appear.

We like to call it a “3-in-1 design”. What you get is a desktop, tablet and mobile phone website.

In other words responsive web design provides the best browsing experience regardless of the device being used. It has become standard in web development so make sure your website is responsive to reach the widest possible audience.
