Make your site work on all devices!
What is a responsive design:
Responsive design is a web design approach that makes a website easy to read, navigate and look impressive across different devices.
For many websites, creating a version for each resolution and new device would be impractical. Should we just suffer the consequences of losing visitors from one device Or is there another option?
Here comes the responsive design, the intelligent option for giving your website an amazing shape and look on all devices.
In short, Responsive design resizes all images so less loading time, it also stacks component to eliminate the horizontal screen scrolling.
So, It really sounds like a perfect solution for the mobile age.
Mobile first approach:
Although the rise of responsive design is too notable, designers tent to have approached the desktop side first.
In fact, starting with the “full size” site considering the mobile part as a secondary goal isn’t the right way.
According to statistics, the mobile internet is overtaking desktop internet usage on 2016.
Thus, it is necessary to design websites that are flexible and suitable from almost any device.
Let’s do it our way:
Having that in mind, iSiteGate has a different way of thinking about mobile phones, knowing that smaller screens are more sensitive and have limited space, we use the mobile first approach.
Therefor, We design for smaller screens first, then we spread the layout on larger screens.
All facts and figures show that mobile world isn’t the future of the internet, it is actually the present.
In 2016 Mobithinking reported these figures:
- There are over 1.2 billion mobile web users worldwide.
- In the U.S, 25% of mobile web users are mobile-only (they rarely use a desktop to access the web).
- Mobile device sales are increasing across the board with over 85 %.
And, the rates are going up rapidly.
Although this may be true, the web and it’s technology is growing, it brings more improvements and more functionality nearly every day.
But for now, we believe that responsive web design is the right tool for the web at present.
