Responsive Web Design
In December of 2013, studies showed that global tablet and smartphone traffic had grown to 20 percent of all Internet traffic—this means that 1 in 5 people visiting your website are browsing from a mobile device.
Although many businesses have opted to respond to this trend with mobile web design, COCG believes that responsive web design is the best way to cater to a growing mobile web user population without compromising functionality, usability, or design integrity.
What is Responsive Design?
Essentially, responsive design optimizes your website to show a different interface to the user based on the size of their browser. Desktop, tablet and mobile “versions” of your website all live on the same URL, and content is strategically displayed based on the resolution of the device being used.
Below are just a few of the benefits to responsive website design:
- Mobile websites are primarily designed for user experience—with responsive web design, you’re getting a site that’s just as beautiful as it is functional.
- Responsive websites retain the same copy across devices, which prevents you from losing valuable content when converting to mobile or tablet.
- With a responsive website design, all of your content will be housed in one place—this means there’s no need to update copy across multiple sites, such as in the case of a separate mobile website.
