Responsive Website Design – What? Why? Where?
You may have heard a fair bit lately about responsive web design. You may have even wondered why it’s important. Well, responsive web design is important to your organization and to your target audience.
Responsive web design means that your website and the content on it will automatically format correctly for the size of screen on the device requesting your website. In plain English – responsive web design allows your website to automatically reformat and look great on mobile phones.
In the past you had to maintain two versions of your website if you wanted to ensure that your mobile phone visitors could see your site. You also had to make sure you weren’t using any technologies that might work on a computer although not work on a mobile device. Adobe Flash for example was a popular way to create websites in the past yet it was essentially useless if your target audience wanted to view your website on their mobile phone as, in many cases, it would not even display on mobile phones.
Today, making your website work seamlessly on computers, tablets and mobile phones is as simple as using responsive web design.
