Building a Responsive Website

What is a responsive website? Glad you asked!

Almost every single new client wants to be able to view a website on a smartphone or smaller device than say, a desktop computer. Our human addiction to the newest and latest smart device means that website developers need to keep coming up with new solutions for designs to be able to be viewed across all platforms. Think about the number of new phones that keep getting punched out, websites can’t automatically adjust their website settings to be viewed nicely on all these crazy new inventions…or can they?

Enter: Responsive Websites.

The solution to that big problem. Responsive websites do as they promise, they respond to the screens they are being viewed on, which means they can be viewed anywhere and at any time. This means no matter what kind of screen your brand website is being viewed on, be it a desktop computer, iPad, smartphone, laptop, or tablet, the website will look optimised and clean. Sometimes information gets cut off the sides when viewing on a smaller screen when it is not designed correctly, and that is really annoying for a prospective client trying to learn more about your business. When viewing the website on any device, all of the navigation will continue to work well, look attractive, and render correctly by automatically adapting to the screen your visitor is using. It’s just another way to make your customer’s experience of your brand and its website all the more enjoyable and is the standard practice for a serious, modern online business.

How Do We Make a Website Responsive?

In order to do build a responsive website, we use CSS, also known as Cascading Style Sheets. Responsive website design uses CSS as well as several different settings to serve the different styles of viewing platforms. These settings automatically allow the content on your website to adapt to the screen’s orientation, size, colour, resolution, and capability of the user’s device that they are viewing the website on. Neat, huh? Jargon aside, responsive website design makes the lives of marketers, advertisers, and business owners easier.


Types of Responsive Website Design

We are about to get a little bit technical, but it’s important that you are given the information to make informed decisions if you are going down the route of a responsive website design.

Responsive website design is the new industry standard that provides a high level of user comfort, but also improves the site’s SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) as well. When choosing a style of responsive website, there are a couple to consider.

Let’s dive in!

Responsive Design

Responsive Design refers to the approach taken to suggest that a website design should respond to the customer’s environment based on the customer’s screen orientation, size, and the platform on which they are viewing the content. Its main intent is to serve different device layouts, tailoring specifically to the type of screen. For instance, on a smartphone, a website will automatically typically adjust into a single column to scroll through. The style is made up of very flexible layouts, grids, content images, and a mixture of CSS media queries. The aim here is to be automatic and to fit every new gadget on the market.

TECHNICAL EXAMPLE:  If you have two column layouts based on one article, then you need to resize the browser window.

The article column needs to be 200px, and the sidebar column needs to be 150px wider. This responsive layout will adapt to the particular screen widths, also called breakpoints. You can use various additional styles to change the design to a certain point when it crosses a 500px breakpoint.

Fluid Layout

Unlike Responsive Designs, Fluid layouts are built on relative widths, grids and percentages. This allows the website to scale up or down nicely and keep the same spacial weighting to all elements, which works well on different screens of the same kind. Having a fluid website design usually fits in the whole of a browser. While it is a time-consuming design, it is still a popular choice for websites.

Designs going with fluidity need to be practical and fairly simple, as they retain the same proportions as the original design no matter what device you are viewing it from. This means you don’t want to be stuck with itty bitty writing on a smartphone simply because it looks good on a desktop computer where it was designed.

Fluid responsive layout

There are very few scenarios that arise where we need to mix fluid and responsive techniques, which is sometimes referred to as a ‘Liquid Layout’. Let’s assume you need an article, and the sidebar column requires 100% of the browser’s width – but on mobile devices, the sidebar is set below the breakpoint of 500px. As you probably guessed, it can get pretty messy, pretty quickly. Generally, the idea behind the fluid responsive layout is that it utilises a fixed width in pixels to define fluid relative units and breakpoints.

In simple words, if you combine smart and clean design with a Fluid Responsive Layout, you are going to get a very clever and optimised website that looks great on any device.
