We develop websites to look different depending on the size on the screen, known as responsive design. This means that your websites content and navigation will move automatically to fit nicely on the screen.
Mobile users benefit from responsive design:
We currently create websites to be mobile and tablet compatible free of charge.
Your website can use responsive design to flow and adapt appropiately to look great on any screen size!
You will benefit from responsive design:
We include responsive design for FREE.
Rather than using a fixed width, we make fluid templates which change to fit any screen size.
By using percentages instead of fixed dimensions allows the width of columns and navigations to change.
By using media queries, we add extra styles which only apply to specific screen sizes. For example, the desktop version may have 3 columns, compared to only 1 column on the mobile site. Learn more in the following video.
Smart phone statistics (by Google, April 2011):
And Google predicts that mobile searches will surpass desktop searches next year.
A static website uses fixed widths to decide how wide things are, such as navigation and columns.
When you look at a static website on a big computer screen - it will look fine. However, if you go to that website on a smart phone, the text will be really realy small.
Why? Because phones try to show an entire web page at once, so to do that they must make everything smaller.
To be able to use and read content requires the visitor to zoom in, and to scroll sideways as they read. Not good!
This demonstrates how this page would look on a mobile without responsive design.
A responsive design website uses percentages to decide how wide thing are, such as navigation and columns.
When you look at such a website on a big computer screen - it will look fine, just like any other website. If you go to that website on a smart phone, everything moves to fit on the screen nicely. You don't need to zoom in.
How? We can add a different design for different screen sizes. For example, your website could have 3 columns on a desktop computer, but on a smart phone those columns would be put into 1 column.
This demonstrates how this page looks on a mobile WITH responsive design.
Many of our competitors fail to offer mobile friendly websites, and the ones that do usually charge extra!
We have included some useful information below, about the pros and cons of not having a responsive web design.
We will include responsive design for FREE to make your website mobile friendly.
Here we have detailed the many benefits of having this functionality on your website.
• Not recommended. All websites need to work on mobile and tablet devices to retain visitors.
• For every business, and every for website.
• To gain an advantage over competitors.
• To reduce the percentage of visitors who leave your website in seconds, known as the bounce rate.
• To make your website easier to use.
People see the website in full size. Their phone will zoom out until the full width of the page can fit on the screen - which makes everything look really small and unreadable.
Visitors will have to zoom in on their phone to read anything, and will need to scroll frequently.
People see the website in sized in a width the same as their device. There is no need to zoom in or out.
The content will be easy to read, and won't require any horizontal scrolling. Navigation is also easy to click.
• None, and this video explains why.
• Customers can read your content easily on any device.
• Mobile users will not have to zoom in because the text is automatically made big enough to read.
• The website looks nicer, and is easier to use.
• Your website is more effective because mobile users are more likely to stay on your site for longer.
• Gain advantage over competitors without a mobile-friendly website.
• Tablets (I.e. iPad, Galaxy Pad, or Nexus) will also display your businesses web pages nicely.
• As soon as the screen (or window) width is changed - the site layout automatically changes.
• Without a mobile friendly website, smart phone visitors are significantly more likely to leave your website quickly.
• Your website is harder to use (on mobiles).
• And many more...
• To setup and test the responsive design on a website takes a little more time.
Finding information on the website will take longer. Visitors may have to scroll in all directions until they find what they would like to click or read.
Find information quickly. The website is mobile friendly - so everything is readable, and links are easier to click.
