Why you need Responsive Website Design.
Each website is specific to a client requirements and therefore each project has different features for example an ecommerce website might need stock control to ensure that the items listed for sale are actually available and in stock. While this would be critical to the success of running a successful online store it would be pointless on a website that just had basic information or was for marketing. Regardless of a websites needs Responsive design in our opinion is a vital part of any modern day website and is a feature critical for mobile and multi device support.
What Is Responsive Web Design?
A responsive website design allows a site’s layout to change as the screen size being used to view that site changes whether you are on a mobile smartphone or tablet or using your laptop or personal desktop. The websites content will scale down according to the device and resolution therefore not losing out on precious content and getting to the point quicker. Whether you are running a simple website or an ecommerce development this will make your website easy to follow and functional on all platforms and devices.
