Responsive Website

A responsive website changes its appearance and layout based on the size of the screen, the website is displayed on. Responsive sites can be designed to make the text on the page larger and easier to read on smaller screens. They can also be configured to make the buttons on the phone's screen easier to press. More sophisticated ways of using responsive design on the mobile device include formatting the website to hide or present entirely different information, radically changing the graphic and colors or even reducing the site to emphasize just its most important piece.

For creating a responsive website, we consider the following elements:

Fluid Layout:

It allows the layout page elements to grow or shrink to predetermined maximum or minimum widths, therefore accommodating  a width range.

Media Queries:

They allow you to specify the style sheets to use when a desired width has been reached or detected.

View Port:

It informs mobile browsers that the site is optimized for the mobile viewing and to render the page at the devices width and or height.

By combining these elements, its now possible to deliver optimized experiences for end users without multiple web properties and withing a single code base.

We can even offer to build the following for a client:
1. Optimizing images fr different devices and connection speeds.
2. Changing navigational position to account for how people hold a mobile device.
3. Restyling links and buttons to be more touch friendly.

We need to ensure elements like videos or data tables resize properly rather than just hiding them, dynamically resizing fonts to work better at different screen resolutions and also provide retain versions of graphic.
