Responsive websites are the future! They allow your site to adapt to different screen sizes which means that whatever device your web visitors are using they get the best possible view of your business or service. This Artwebco website itself is responsive, so if you view us on a mobile, tablet or desktop you will see how the layout changes to make the best of the available screen size.
People who browse while on-the-go have very different needs than those sitting at a desk. Responsive websites re-organise themselves automatically according to the device viewing them, so that the same website provides a great experience everywhere. Desktops get a full-blown interface with videos, large images and animations. Smartphones get a simplified website that runs fast without the bells and whistles. Tablets and netbooks get something in between.
Mobile environments require simpler navigation, focused content and fast page loads. If a website has a responsive design the user does not have to manipulate the site using “pinch and zoom” and the flow of content is more appropriate for a smaller screen. The site may reduce the amount of content presented to the mobile visitor, so it has less clutter and is easier to use.
Responsive design works by grouping similar devices by screen size together to establish the target size ‘break points’ your site is designed for. So you’re not designing the ‘iPhone’ version of a site, you’re designing the version intended for all smartphones. The website is flexible and responds to the exact size of the screen viewing it. When a new device comes out that’s a little larger or smaller than your target, it’s going to work well on that too.
