Responsive Web Design is a website design and website development code that will respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, device and orientation. The development consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, responsive images and an combined use of HTML5 and CSS3 media queries. As website visitors switch from their laptop to tablet, iPad, or smart phone the website will automatically switch to accommodate for resolution, image sizes and scripting abilities. In other words, the website has the technology to automatically respond and switch according to the to the user’s preferences. This eliminates the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.
At Specialty Web Designs Inc. a few years ago website development was much different than today. We used to design a different site for the different devices, however creating a different version for each new device or resolution and would be impractical in todays world with so many different devices, and development cost would be to costly. Today developers are quickly getting to the point of being unable to keep up with the constant new devices and resolutions. The best option is Responsive Website Design!

Using a responsive website design we can make things more flexible. Content and images can be automatically adjusted to fit the users screen size, and there are work arounds so that layouts never break. This type of website development gives us far more options. It is perfect for devices that switch from portrait orientation to landscape in an instant or for when users switch from a large computer screen to an iPad, tablet or smart phone.
One Design multiple devices. Almost every new client these days needs and or wants a mobile version of their website. It is essential after all: one design for all devices and all screen resolutions must be compatible.
In todays fast technology driven work place having a mobile site is mandatory. In 2016 our analytic reports show an increase of 60% of users are on some type of phone, tablet or other hand held device. More than 75% of all users these days will use their phones when searching for a business or somewhere to eat, lets face it small devices are here to stay.
One benefit of using a responsive website design, compared to setting up a mobile version of your website that is completely separate from your original site, are obvious. Whenever you update your website, it will be updated for every device and display correctly on every screen. You only have to update in one location, where with a separate mobile site would require a separate location requiring updating as well.
