“Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come.” – Jeffrey Veen
Jeffrey Veen, the Vice President of products for Adobe sums up the way of the web perfectly in his quote.
Much like fashion, digital design moves at a rapid rate – not only aesthetically, but technically. Technology always has and always will continue to advance in all directions. This obviously poses a challenge for us web developers to ensure we are at the forefront on these changes, enabling us to create websites for our clients that demonstrate the cutting edge of technology.
It is vital that a website is compatible with and accessible on all devices, from mobile, tablet, laptop and pc screens as well as the ever increasing number of web browsers. All these elements need to be considered to guarantee your site can be viewed by your target audience.
With these expanding factors to consider, Responsive Web Design has become a popular opportunity for developers to create websites for various screen sizes.
As there is a lot more work required from the web developers, be prepared for it to have an impact on time and money.
There are a few other elements to consider also before proceeding down the responsive design route.
- Time & Money
- Browser Support
