Responsive Web Design Makes A Difference
KC Web Specialists are expert website designers in Kansas City.
Web design and web development are progressing at an astronomical pace. The use of mobile devices to access the Internet is growing as well. Unfortunately, many websites are not optimized for mobile devices and are incompatible with various other devices. It can be a challenge for some designers and developers to stay on top of all the new devices and resolutions.
Almost everyone wants a mobile version of their website that is compatible with all their different devices. That means one design for the iPhone, another for the iPad, Kindle or tablet. New electronic products are being introduced almost daily with many different screen sizes. It’s important that your website be adaptable to any screen size, now and in the future.
Users of mobile devices are used to scrolling a website vertically. Having to scroll horizontally or zoom out in order to see an entire page can result in negative user experience. If your website is for the purpose of generating revenue, not being mobile-friendly can directly impact your business.
To create a website version for every screen resolution on every new device is impractical. For many websites, it’s a matter of risking the loss of users of one device in the hopes of gaining them on another. Fortunately, there is another option for web design and development and that is responsive web design.
Responsive Web Design
Web design of a content-focused, mobile-first website cannot be approached in the same way that designers typically design websites. Users want a website that conforms to current technologies for screen size, platform and orientation, switching automatically from one device to another each time the user changes devices. Responsive web design responds to a user’s devices, behavior, environment and settings by using a combination of:
- Flexible grids and layouts
- CSS media queries
- Innovative technology
This responsive approach to web design ensures a website automatically responds to user preferences across all platforms and devices. The layout changes based on the size and capabilities of the device. The way the website appears on a cell phone, for example, may display in a single column, whereas on a tablet it will display horizontally across the screen. Lines of text may be broken making it difficult to read the content. With responsive web design, the necessity for a different design and resolution for each new device that comes on the market is eliminated.
