Top Topic: Responsive Website Design

By 8th May 2013Creative, Web Design

Responsive design is definitely one of the top topics this year.  If you are unsure what we are talking about, we mean a design approach that’s aimed towards providing a perfect visual website experience. This involves easy reading, navigation and minimizing the requirement of a visitor  to resizing and scrolling. These factors are critical in ensuring a visitor is having a positive and pleasurable experience on your website. A responsive design encourages them to spend more time on site and take in the relevant information which increases the chances of a conversion.

The internet now comes in all shapes and sizes. You can find it in your pocket, on the coffee table, on your oversized flat screen T.V and in the office. With screens ranging from 2 inches wide to 50 + inches wide, it has become a challenge to provide the perfect visual experience across the board. With smartphones and tablets accounting for roughly 15% of website traffic and is set to increase, it’s clear to see why it’s important to get responsive.
