What is Responsive Design?

Assalam aleikum dear readers,

Responsive Design is the Internet’s way of adapting itself to the technical devices that people are now using to view the web with. The statistics for devices used to view web content are changing very quickly, the number of people that are using the internet from their iPhones, iPads & other handheld  devices is growing more and more by the second each day.

So what does this mean & how is this effecting businesses & website development?

Well, in the field of Web design and development, we’re swiftly reaching the point of almost being unable to keep up with the endless new technologies, inventions & new devices. For many businesses, creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be expensive, impractical & very time consuming. But if you didn’t it would most definitely restrict your website from being viewed from other potential clients using other devices, unless you developed one separately for each. Wouldn’t it?

Alhamdulillah, now that isn’t the case, because that is where responsive design comes in and saves the day. With Responsive design, the design and development is responding to the user’s behavior and environment based on the platform, orientation and screen size of the device it is being used in.

This performance consists of some flexible grids, images, layouts and some smart CSS media queries. Media queries? What are they I hear you say? Well I don’t know if that’s really what you’re saying but I know that’s what I said. icon wink What is Responsive Design?

Media queries are the foundation to the presentation layer on how to make your website display correctly on the device you’re using. They structure readable text according to screen availability, presenting & hiding content as appropriate, relieving one from needing to pinch and zoom as we do on iPhones.

They have been around for quite some time now and web developers have been using them for the website screen & projectors. Lately though they have had a bit of a power boost because now developers can state the width or even height of a screen and the actual web browsers dimensions of a device and even set boundaries. Meaning that we can now start to deliver a user experience based on the device being used, this allows us to restructure our content for the best experience, provide usable navigating systems and images and actually deliver responsive sites that organically adjust, scale and present themselves at their best! Definitely a wow factor don’t you think?

So in conclusion, responsive design allows the website to automatically respond to the user as they switch over from their laptop to any other handheld device, as the website should automatically switch as well in order to accommodate the resolution, image size and scripting abilities. This now eliminates the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.
