Almost every new client in Gippsland these days wants a mobile version of their website.
It’s practically essential after all: one design for the iPhone, one for the iPad, another for smartphones and another for widescreen computers — and all screen resolutions must be compatible, too.
In the next five years, we’ll likely need to design for a number of additional inventions. When will the madness stop? It won’t, of course.
In the field of Web design and development, at Gippsland Web Design, we're quickly getting to the point of being unable to keep up with the endless new resolutions and devices. For many websites, creating a website version for each resolution and new device would be impossible, or at least impractical.
Should we just suffer the consequences of losing visitors from one device, for the benefit of gaining visitors from another? Or is there another option?
Responsive Web design is the approach that suggests that design and development should respond to the user’s behavior and environment based on screen size, platform and orientation.
The practice consists of a mix of flexible grids and layouts, images and an intelligent use of code in the backend. As the user switches from their desktop to iPad, the website should automatically switch to accommodate for resolution and image size.
In other words, your website should have the technology to automatically respond to the user’s preferences. This would eliminate the need for a different design and development phase for each new gadget on the market.
At Gippsland Web Design we create your website with all screen sizes in mind. From large to small, wide to skinny.
So if your website is looking tired, and you need someone to build you a new responsive website, then contact the web designers at Gippsland Web. We'll make the process easy and painless.
