Responsive Web Designing
What exactly is Responsive web design?
At its simplest, Responsive design means your website’s information – images, texts, videos, links – is easily and readily accessible across all different platforms and, most particularly, on the much smaller screen of smartphones and tablets.
At a more complex level, Responsive means utilizing to the utmost all the incredible capabilities of mobile devices to deliver an effective, satisfying experience to users on the go
Desktop vs. Phone & Tablet: The Big Difference
When designing for the small screen, it’s important to recognize 3 elementary differences between the mobile experience and the desktop.
● Space is at a minimum.
● Attention is scarce.
● Mobile users are very goal directed, typically seeking a key piece of information that will facilitate their task.
Hence, the key guideline for mobile design is “simplify and specialize.” Each site should be streamlined with limited information and fewer functions compared to the full-fledged websites and multi-feature programs on the PC. Buttons, links, texts and pictures need to be resized to be functional and legible. Navigation through multiple sub pages, too, should be kept to a bare minimum in your mobile design.
