People really love their phones, and as mobile technology evolves, websites have kept us even more connected to them. What was once designed for our desktops now also needs to be optimized for our mobile devices—browsing, social media, email, shopping—if you can name it, it can most likely be done on your phone. With mobile-responsive design and mobile apps, your site or product will be fully accessible to those who want to connect.
Designing a responsive format enables your website to adapt and respond to the appropriate screen size of the device being used. Non-responsive sites just shrink content proportionally, which doesn’t create an optimized mobile experience. Responsive sites rearrange elements and content for smaller devices, which creates a better browsing experience.
Responsive design detects the width of the device of the browser and automatically transforms and rearranges elements based on how much screen real estate is available. We set these designs up on a grid that targets specific breakpoints to best present your website on devices of all sizes.
With responsive web design still a relatively new practice, the process is constantly evolving. Here's the process we've found to be successful over the past few years, and this is just the beginning.
With mobile traffic at an all-time high, there's no doubt that there's an inherent need to optimize your website for mobile devices. If you're still on the fence, here are some helpful stats to butter you up.
