Responsive Web Design
Why design two websites when one will do?
2012 is officially the year of the mobile. Nearly 50% of all mobile phones are smartphones, and mobile web traffic saw a 35% increase in 2012. Your users are on the go, and your website should be, too. But that doesn't mean you need two websites, one for desktops and one for mobile. And what about tablets?
Responsive website design changes that. Instead of designing separate websites for specific dimensons, you're able to serve both your mobile users and your desktop users with one website and one user experience. With responsive, your website's layout will automatically adjust to the dimensions of the browser it's opened in. You have one site for all screens.
In addition to providing a better user experience, responsive website design will also improve your search engine optimization because you no longer split traffic to two sites. In fact, Google officially announced that they favor responsive web design for mobile websites in June.
We were early adopters in responsive website design, launching our first responsive website in September 2011 for Purple Communications — you can read a case study we wrote about it for Web Designer Depot here. This isn't something that we're just "trying out." We have experts on staff dedicated solely to responsive and adapative website design, ensuring that you're getting the most up-to-date practices integrated on your new website.
