Internet users are now accessing the web on a vast range of devices such as desktop PC, laptops, Tablet PC's, smart phones, iPad, iPhone and other mobile devices - all with different screen sizes and resolutions.
Viewing a website that was designed for a desktop computer on the screen of a smartphone can be very problematic. It requires a lot of zooming in and out and scrolling in all directions, which, in short, results in a bad user experience.
Producing websites that are visually appealing and usable on all devices is a real challenge. Thankfully, there is a solution; Responsive Web Design. This is designed on CSS3 and HTML5.
In the past, the primary solution to this problem has been to build bespoke websites for different devices. Whilst building a separate mobile site can be a great option, it can also require large amounts of resource and development time and may result in inconsistent sites which are difficult to maintain.
CSS3 media queries have enabled a new alternative; Responsive Web Design. It allows designers to create websites with fluid layouts and flexible images that automatically adapt, according to the size and orientation of the user's browser, to deliver the optimal layout. This ensures that the site looks great, is consistent and is usable, regardless of device.
Designing for the web as a whole, rather than for a specific device, ensures that all users get access to the same information and receive a consistent user experience. It not only maximizes the site's compatibility with the plethora of devices available now, but also new devices that have yet to be launched - future proofing your site. There is also the huge benefit of ease of maintenance; keeping one website up-to-date is much easier than managing multiple device specific sites.
