Responsive Website Design

Responsive Website Design simply means making sure your web site works well and looks good on all devices, including phones and tablets, not just PCs.

What it is

It's a range of techniques that makes your site is easy to use on phones and tablets as well as PCs.

The techniques include :

  • making sure phone users don't have to scroll sideways or zoom in and out
  • making sure menus are easy to use without a mouse
  • resizing pictures to fit the space available
  • hiding nonessential items on smaller screens

How does your web site look on an iPhone?

It’s an important question, especially if your site is a few years old. Some older sites work well, others work up to a point but are hard to use. A few simply don’t work at all.

If you’d like to find out, simply email us with your website address, and we will send you a screenshot of your site.

Why it matters

Responsive design matters because the way we use the web has changed. Sales of tablets are booming, while sales of consumer PCs are dropping. Smartphone sales outnumber PCs and tablets combined.

Consumers expect sites to work well on all devices. If they find your site hard to use, they won't be patient, they'll just bounce off to find a friendlier competitor.
