The New Flexible, Elastic, Fluid, Responsive Web

18 February 2013 by Evan Dobos The New Flexible, Elastic, Fluid, Responsive Web

Think about how many kinds of devices you can view a web page on:

  • Phones (commonly with landscape and portrait modes)
  • Tablets (commonly with landscape and portrait modes)
  • Laptops
  • Desktops (and all the monitor size options that are on market)
  • Watches
  • Vehicles
  • Refrigerators (don't believe me?)

Not only that, think about how many more are to come!

Our studio has been producing mobile ready websites for years now.  However, the race to keep up with the varying devices and screen sizes has become impossible.  

How PTW Keeps Up
Responsive Web Design is something that has been becoming a required technique for us web designers to have.  To us, it makes a lot of sense, as we focus on producing a single website that responds to the size of the device that the site is being viewed on.

Wikipedia says:

"Responsive web design (often abbreviated to RWD) is an approach to web design in which a site is crafted to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones)"

We've been studying up on the proper usage of these new techniques, and are now offering RWD to our clients who feel that device compatibility is key to their website's success.
