Mobile Device Friendly Design

Responsive Web Design

Using a web design that is responsive means that the format of your site looks great on all different devices: Computer, Tablet, or Smart Phone.

In the beginning, websites were only seen on computers. The programming language (HTML) that formatted the pages was primitive and didn’t allow for much resign. Over time the HTML language has become more powerful and the world is using all manor of devices to access information.

The old designs used small fonts and images in a table like structure that looked good on a big screen.  But when you look at the same page on a mobile phone, you see tiny type and images.  It is hard to read and harder to navigate to other pages.

Designers and programmers have created website designs that look great on both traditional computers and on mobile platforms.  The content of both sites is the same, but if you look at the site on a computer or on a smart phone, you’ll see something different.  It adds a new way to look at design.

Research from IDC shows that the market for mobile devices will surpass the market for PC’s in 2014.

If our website doesn’t look good on your smartphone, you really do need to consider a redesign. In 2014, the sales of mobile devices will surpass the sales of personal computers. This means that increasingly, people will be using smart phones and tablets to look for information. Here are some other details on future sales predictions.
