Responsive Web Design

All of Our Websites are Mobile-Friendly, iPad-Friendly, Tablet-Friendly (and PC-Friendly)

Nowadays, more people surf the internet using phones and tablets than PCs. This means that the browser window can be anything from about 320 pixels wide (some iPhones and Androids) up to 1920 pixels wide (larger PCs). They can also be just about anything in-between - not least because PC users can manually resize their browser windows.

This means that the old fixed width web design has now become undesirable as it leads to poor user experience. A new type of web design, Responsive Website Design (RWD), has emerged to cope with this.

Key Features of Responsive Design

Responsive - images and text resize according to the width of the browser window.

Flexible columns - on smaller devices, columns display underneath each other, enabling text to be easier to read.

Menus - mobiles and tablets show a single drop-down, touch-friendly menu structure.

Phone friendly - phone numbers can be clicked to ring (on relevant devices.)

Responsive websites are not just better for your customers; they are also better for your SEO. Google has said that it prefers responsive websites to a separate mobile version of a normal website as the end-user gets a richer experience. It has publicly stated that, for mobile searches, a responsive website is one factor in its algorithm.

Test It Yourself

Try resizing this browser. Note that:

  • The text and images get smaller as the screen width shrinks.
  • At a certain width, columns are displayed underneath each other rather than side-by-side.
  • The menus change.
  • The phone number is clickable on relevant devices.
