One Web Site; All Devices!

Responsive Website Design is nothing new, back in the day tablet based designers either chose the fluid or static route. Today’s responsive websites take a comparable approach by using fluid widths in percentages and ems. They do not stop, but take a step further by using scalable images and adjustable layouts. All of which is based on what kind or screen-size you are using while browsing the desired website. There are three very important elements in responsive web design.

•Flexible Layouts
•Flexible Images
•Media Queries


Flexible Layouts:
 

Your first step should be to create a flexiable layout. As the browser width changes, fluid grids will resize and resposition the content as necessary. Tiny Fluid Grid is a wonderful tool for creating flood grids. It’s free to use, and there is no reason you shouldn’t try it.
 

Flexible Images:
 

As obvious as it seems, adjustable images are very important. Here are a few ways this task in achievable. You can ultimately resize the image on the fly, or dynamically crop the image. By combining both methods you are enabling the image to resize automatically when it’s below a specific size.
 

Media Queries:
 

Media Queries behave similar to conditional comments. For example, you can have one stylesheet for a large display meanwhile providing different stylesheet for mobile devices with different width’s. Media queries allow designers to create multiple layouts using the same content. To achieve scalability, CSS media queries are used to apply different page styling according to certain parameters, like min-width and orientation.
 

Conclusion;
 

Responsive Website Design is quite important for any business owner who has a website. Google Analytics has notified me that more than 33% of the visitors on this site browse from a mobile browser. For me to make their experience enjoyable, simple and easy is a must. We can argue that this is just trend, however it helps significantly to resolve the design problems associated with the different resolutions.
