binary-715761_1280

One of the main principles of of designing a responsive website, is to make sure that the browsing experience is the same for all types of users (desktop, mobile etc). This means that you need to be certain all images, grids, content etc will reconfigure with no design issues on different screen sizes.

We recommend that you focus on three different breakpoints when it comes to resolution:

  • 480px – small and old smartphone screens
  • 768px – large smartphone screens, tablets and standard desktop screens
  • 1024px – widescreen desktops

When uploading images onto the site, make sure that all images are flexible. By this, we mean that the images are suitable for all resolutions. We recommend sizing for the mobile market to get the best out of your responsive design.

 

Responsive – A design that can take you forward

You may have noticed that our design is responsive. There are many reasons why we opted for a responsive theme, but one of the main reasons is usability. Our posts are easy to read on a range of devices, and that’s great in terms of SEO, because Google is all for mobile optimised websites.

They are now starting to roll out ‘mobile-friendly’ stamps on search listings so searchers can quickly see whether the site is going to be suited for their mobile device. A responsive website design can definitely take a business forward, and if it’s created by a top designer, then you can feel rest assured that your website is suitable for people, whether they’re visiting from their mobile on the move, or on their personal laptop.

The easy you make it for customer, the more likely they will be in your products and services, so make sure you’ve consider a responsive design, or at least a mobile version of your website.
