Here’s a quick video demonstration I put together to show the difference between a website with a responsive layout vs a website without a responsive layout. I suppose I take my tech savviness for granted sometimes. I’ve found that as I drop the term “responsive design” on prospective clients that it’s been met with blank stares, head scratching and a lot of “huh?”‘s.
Responsive designs are a must for any website that anticipates having any sort of sizable mobile audience. Though many devices these days can adjust the screen zoom to fit a full size website into it’s viewing window, it’s far more advantageous to create a website that adjusts itself and lays the content of the page out in a way that best fits the viewers window. This is the purpose of responsive design. Is it clear now?
