Responsive Web design is an approach which suggests that design and development should respond effectively to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.
When thinking about getting a redesign for your website or having a brand new site created, have you thought about the way it will look across all devices? A responsive design site consists of a combination of flexible grids and layouts, along with images and strategically created CSS media queries.
One website design will not be compatible on all devices and in different orientations, unless it is a responsive design. Some devices may operate in landscape mode while others in portrait and some devices may be square shaped. In the field of Web design and development, developers have started reaching a point of being unable to keep up with the endless new resolutions and devices. For most websites, creating a website version for each and every resolution and new device would be impractical, if not impossible.
The practice consists of mixing flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of CSS media queries. As the user switches from their laptop to iPad or from Ipad to a phone, the website automatically switches its layout to accommodate the resolution, image size and scripting abilities. In other words, the website has the inbuilt technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This type of responsive web designing will eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget arriving in the market
