Responsive Web Design.
Your Website Is Your Face on Internet….The Face , Should Be GOOD
Smartphones and tablets have changed the way people interact with the web. We need to change our approach toward design and user experience if we’re going to keep up. Before we needed to concern ourselves with were the different browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome). Don’t misunderstand that was hard enough and we still need to do that, but now with the explosion of Android and IPhones, Ipad and Ipad mini as well as the numerous android tablet devices we need to consider what your site looks like and how a user interacts with it in all these different environments too. That’s where “responsive design” comes in.
“Responsive Design” is a strategy of organizing and coding a website so that it creates an optimal experience in any device. A “Responsive Design” will literally reorganize itself based on the screen dimensions of the device it’s being viewed so the same site can be seen on a desktop with a large screen and a mobile phone and even though it’s still the same project, the user experience will change based on the needs of the visitor. Pretty neat huh?
If you’re worried about this, you’re not alone. Just as companies realized, circa 1996, that they needed to create a website to remain relevant to consumers, history is repeating itself in mobile. By 2013, more people will use mobile phones than PCs to get online, according to Gartner. In mid-2011, we also reached the point at which consumers were spending more time on their mobile devices than on their PCs.
The “Responsive Design” concept is a tool not a solution. A professional designer can use this technique to create a web project for you that targets your audience, displays the information that a mobile audience is looking for and hide the information that isn’t as important on a phone but is very important on a desktop or tablet environment. We will analyze your business needs and determine the objectives of each audience then present the visual elements so they make sense to a visitor no matter how they got to your website.
The web is a lot like high school. You’re judged by who you hang out with. The web is a collection of pages connected by links. Your website’s credibility is largely determined by link. The websites you connect out to, as well as the ones who connect to you. Part of what we do is secure relationships with other websites and resources that will increase your website reputation. The more quality websites link to you; the more important your company becomes.
